Everyone has their own thoughts about a specific person and feelings towards them. Just like Ray Bradbury does for Clarisse and Captain Beatty. Ray Bradbury made different tones for both these characters because he wanted to show both sides to souls in life. For example one that can open up your eyes to everything and the other to try and shut up them and destroy people. Two very opposite characters that were a huge part of Montag's life.
Clarisse was a very inspiring kid to Montag because she showed him what the world truly was..., Beautiful. I believe this young women gave Montag a sign of up for happiness in his life. He was able to see and feel the potential it really had. also opened up his mind for better ideas, like actually saving and reading a book. Something that was against the rules. Reading a book and keeping them.... so harmless yet sharp and good kill. Literally. The tone the author used for Clarisse felt very confused yet hopeful. She rubbed off as the curious girl she was and seemed to be wise at a young age.
Captain Beatty to me seemed like a very understandable man I the beginning but grew to be not so understandable and was in some situations for himself. For example burning books, that was his main goal. So sad how all the knowledge was in all the books they burned because they were afraid people knew too much and asked questions. He hates books yet you can obviously see how he maybe just maybe used to be in love with them. Beatty claims to know about a lot the world and how its lonely like he has lived it all. Is that what he is trying to save the world of? Knowledge of realizing how everyone and everything is different? The authors tone seemed to change for me in the beginning throw out the end of the book for this character. He seemed like he could be trusted by Montag because in the beginning he understood when Montag was sick and how he was feeling. Later on in the story you can start seeing how he was very odd and kind of aggressive about books in this world. showed how the author made you think you can trust someone but reality is they should not be trusted. Beatty turned out to be the real bad guy in this story. I believe if Montag did not kill him, he would have killed Montag and not have realized how books are very important.
I believe in the author is showing us how books and very important in our world because they make us smarter and writer lets us show it off. The differences in Bradbury tone in both characters, are showing how one made the story actually come alive and the other made the ending but helped the story come alive. Like Clarisse opened Montag's eyes and Beatty opened them more and made his spot of curiosity grow larger yet break the rules for a good purpose. Although it was very difficult for Montag because of his very depressed rude wife, the author showed how he god threw the rule breaking and he stay strong for advocating for something he knew was very important. Bradbury proved to us all everything changes, change can be good but somethings have to continue on like books and writing, for everyone.

Leggings, a piece of clothing since the 1960s. Walking down the crowd through business men, mothers trying not to yell at their toddlers with a force, and Hozier trying not to be seen in airport. My thoughts seeing all this was that I just wanted to get home to see my family and sleep the way their because I new I had 5 hours. I put my luggage in its place, as I walked down the tunnel hall way to board my plane and one of the flight crew members saw me approach she begin to eye ball me from the bottom of my shoes to the top of my head. "I'm sorry to say this but you can not board the plane, you are wearing inappropriate attire it does not meet our policies standards." I looked down at what I was wearing I saw what I had left my dorm in. My roshes and nike fit leggings with a gray long sleeve shirt. Inappropriate?.... I think not! I had no skin showing or my boobs hanging out, just a casual outfit that I could sleep in or even work out in. I was denied my way back room to visit family and the only time I can be able to sleep comfortably. Yet a passenger can wear and dress which is showing her legs and skin but I can not board BECAUSE OF LEGGINGS!
I believe United is ridiculous! RIDICULOUS!
