    The novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury can be compared to the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The main character in Bradbury's novel, Guy Montag, has many similarities to Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird. Both of these men risk their lives to stand up for what they believe in. They both go against the normal beliefs of society, and think for themselves. Although the overall themes of these books are very different, they both center on the general beliefs of the public, and t...
