Montag is a middle aged, married fireman who burns books for a living. Clarisse is a peculiar teen who just moved to Montag's neighborhood. She tends to ask montag strange question he never thought of before
I've done nothing wrong!
Do you ever read any of the books you burn?
As he spends more time with Clarisse, Montag starts to think and question things he never thought about before. It isn't until he and the other firemen burn a woman for possessing books, does he truly think something is wrong.
Good God! What did we do?!
The next day Montag becomes ill from the events that took place the other night. Beatty, the chief fireman comes to visit him and gives Montag an unsettling talk though there was nothing wrong with it. Montag's wife is trying to fluff his pillow unaware of the book underneath it.
Please don't find the book. Leave me alone! Leave!
Life becomes one big pratfall, Montag; everything bang, boff, and wow!
What is this......
Montag's will soon breaks and he starts to read the books that he has hidden over the years. Even though he tries very hard, he can't seem to understand what the books are saying. Wanting to understand, Montag goes to a man he met once before, and asks him to teach him how to undertsand.
No wait! Please listen to me. I need your help. I want to understand!
Montag, Beatty and some of his other fellow fireman travel to Montag's house to burn the books it holds within. Beatty makes Montag do it by himself. After committing the act, Montag breaks and burns Beatty alive. He begins to run and now the city is after him.
I have to get out of here
After arriving at the river. Montag travels farther away from the city. He then comes across a group of men that also had knowledge about books. They welcomed him and informed Montag that the city and blamed an innocent man for Montag's crimes. He then choose to stay with the group and travel to other places, spreading his knowledge with those wanting it.
