"Was it always like this?" Guy Montag asks. "Didn't firemen prevent fires rather than ... get them going?" Thus Montag begins to examine himself and his world, a world ominously like our own, hurtling mindlessly through sensory overload to its own destruction. More than the story, reader William Roberts is added reason to re-examine this '50's classic. Roberts creates character like a virtuoso actor. While the males--Montag, Beatty and Faber--are voiced individually, all females except Clarisse, are characterized as thin, whining and insipid. They, above all, typify the barrenness of this self-destructive world. Thus, Fahrenheit 451 becomes a lively and believable morality play for young head-setters.
