In the book Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury, the author has added the effect of parallelism of today's society and his fictional society in which Guy Montag, the main character, lives. There are both similarities and differences to the societies, such as their society burns books, and ours ban's them. The similarities are both societies' authority figures are taking away our first amendment right, the freedom of press.

Things that you can compare from the fictional society and today's society is there is amazing technology, the technology of the Mechanical Hound, the hand key, the seashell, the green bullet, the parlor. Today's society is technical; we have small computers, big and flat televisions, palm pilots, cell phones, fax machines, ATMs.

Things you can contrast are how much better their technology is. They have walkie-talkies and radios that fit in your ear instead of in your hand, Televisions that are used as walls instead of eye sores on the wall. Their way of executing someone is by the Mechanical Hound, a deadly robot with poison, apposed to our society's lethal injection with I.V.s.
