Discussion Question: Montag's Choice

The following text is excerpted from the Big Read's Reader's Guide on Fahrenheit 451, reprinted courtesy of the National Endowment for the Arts.


Unlike Mrs. Hudson, Montag chooses not to die in his house with his books. Instead he burns them, asserting even that "it was good to burn" and that "fire was best for everything!" Are you surprised that he fails to follow in her footsteps?
