Review: Burning Bright by Ray Bradbury

Burning Bright is the third and last division of Fahrenheit 451, which was published in 1953. It is a book about boos being outlawed and if anyone found, keeping books as possessions, their belongings and the books which they have hold of would be burned down by “fireman”.  The hound is used by the fireman to find outlawed books.

The division continues with Beatty who is the part of the “fireman” arriving to Montag’s house with him, after receiving a address from the dispatcher system. Beatty orders Montag to destroy his own house, claiming that his wife and friends were the ones who reported him. Montag tries to talk it out with Mildred as she hurriedly leaves the house, ignoring him she gets inside a taxi and leaves. Montag does as Beatty commanded him to do and burns his house piece by piece with a flame thrower. When Beatty discovers the Montag’s ear piece, he plans to hunt down Faber.

When Montag finds out about Beatty’s plan, he threatens him with the flamethrower and after Beatty taunts him, he burns his boss alive, and knocks his coworkers unconscious. As Montag tries to escape the robotic dog manages to inject his leg with a tranquilizer, and he destroys it with the flamethrower limping away. Montag reaches Faber’s house who instruct him to go to the countryside and contact the exiled book-lovers who reside there. He tells Montag that he would be leaving on an early bus heading to St. Louis and would meet him there.

Meanwhile, Montag and Faber watch the news, in which it is shown that a new robotic hound has been released. He escapes the man hunt by wading into the river and floating downstream. Montag leaves the river in the countryside, where he finds the book-lovers led by a man named Granger. Each of the members has memorized books for the time when society is ready accepts books once again. While Montag learns about the group, he and the book-lovers watch helplessly as the bombers fly above their head and destroy the city Montag once lived in completely. Faber would have already left for the countryside, while Mildred Montag’s wife with everyone else in the city was definitely killed. Montag and the group managed to survive.

After the destruction, Granger teaches Montag about the legendary creature known as phoenix, and its endless cycle of long life, death in flames and rebirth. He further states that humankind could have some relation to the phoenix, which has the tendency to repeat mistakes. The point where the humans and the phoenix are set apart is that the humans remember their mistakes, and try not to make them again. Granger than suggests that a large mirror should be built for humankind to long look at themselves. When they finish eating, the book-lovers go back towards the city to rebuild it.
