First, Montag begins to doubt his job because he meets a young beautiful seventeen-year-old by the name of Clarisse McClellan, who introduces Montag to the world's potential for beauty and meaning with her gentle innocence and curiosity. "Is it true that long ago firemen put fires out instead of going to start them?" (BradBury 12) Montag knows it is against the law to read the books he burns, but yet he has the urge to read one. People in Montags society do not read books instead they drive fast, and watch a lot of television. Montags temptation to read books is growing throughout the novel.

Montag is experiencing a great deal of curiosity.

Mildred Montag Holds in all her pain and doesn't know what to do with it. Her suicide attempt suggests that she is in great pain and that her obsession with television is way to disregard her feelings. The fact that Mildred took a bunch of pills, which she refuses even to recognize is outlandish.
