* MisaimedFandom: Some people have interpreted the novel as saying that television is always garbage. Not only is this not what Bradbury was trying to say, one character directly stamps on the idea. He flat out says that the Parlor Families could easily have the same magic that books did, and that the magic of books wasn't unique to books, or even guaranteed to be found in them. He then says that what Montag is looking for is the infinite detail and awareness that were once in books and could, in theory, be found in everything from radio plays, to movies, to old friends.

** Sadly, with the way the American 2016 election is going, some might argue that this is a case of ValuesDissonance that is radically transforming into ValuesResonance

* ValuesResonance: This novel predicted iPods, flatscreen [=TVs=], the decline of quality in public schools, prescription drug abuse, people abandoning books for new media, and everyone living in fear over war, but not really taking action. The Choose Your Own Adventure television shows are awfully similar to video-games too.

Replace the telescreens with smartphones and you have the phenomenon known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phubbing phubbing]].

Added DiffLines:

* FriendlyFandoms: There's a lot of overlap between readers of this and readers of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', due to both books being about [[{{Zeerust}} then-future]] {{dystopia}}s and elimination of free thought.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Clarisse enjoyed a similar fate to Franchise/SherlockHolmes', as her popularity among readers and their interest in her ambiguous fate in the novel prompted Bradbury to follow the film's example and [[spoiler:reveal she's still alive]] at the end of the stage play.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: At one point a discussion on politics is entirely focused on comparing the President to his last political challenger in a very superficial way, with a woman complaining that the challenger dressed unflatteringly, and picked his nose on national television. While this was intended to underscore how superficial she was, modern readers would be scratching their heads at what political party would nominate such an unprofessional individual in the first place.
