Fahrenheit 451: Discuss part three

Our September Reading group book is Fahrenheit 451. This is the place to talk about the story, characters and themes found in part three: Burning Bright. Warning: contains spoilers

Here you're invited to discuss the third and final part of the book and the effectiveness with which Bradbury draws things to a conclusion. Early on this section, we are told Montag wanted to fly near the sun, and, as Beatty observes he has "burned his wings". But it's Beatty who ends up in a fire, perhaps because, as Montag realises "he wanted to burn".

Montag gives the Hound the kerosene treatment too, and for a large part of this section, the chase is on, most of it filmed live on TV. As if that weren't enough, Bradbury also chucks in a bomb and drawing out one of the book's quieter themes, a gentle, almost pastoral ending, with Montag finally reconnecting with nature ? and a new source of literature. © 2011 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
