In "Fahrenheit 451", how old is Montag?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Montag is thirty. After he first meets Clarisse, they talk briefly, and she asks him how long he has been a fireman. Montag's response is "Since I was twenty, ten years ago." So, at the beginning of the book he had been burning books for a full ten years-a significant amount of time, especially considering how in the next sections he turns against it completely. I also provided links below to a summary of the book, along with other information. Good luck!
