David tried to ignore the Tomkey children, but “it was impossible to separate him from his celebrity” (851) making David envious. The Tomkeys judged by not owning a television and spending quality time together, and with the vacancy every weekend, David “felt as if my favorite show had been canceled” (851). David is obsessing over the Tomkeys, but until he realizes how ridiculous his obsession is over television, he will never change
In the novel Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury gives a glimpse of a future dystopian society. Guy Montag is a fireman who lives in this isolated society, where books are banned due to the fear of free thinking. And Fireman’s job is to burn any books that come in sight. People in this society are emotionless, they don’t read books or question about what is going on around them. Instead, they spend most of their time watching TV and listening to the radio.
Why are these choices so important? A choice made by Mr.fisher that affects paul was when he overlooked the area and all of its issues. He didn't exactly say that they lived within feet of the muck fire, he also never said that tangerine was known for lightning striking on a consistent day to day basis.” mom would never say it but i bet we were both thinking the same, what else had dad “overlooked” about tangerine?”(pg.27). Both Mrs.fisher and paul had mixed emotions on dad overlooking such

Being in Reggie’s shoes, I would have been as courageous as he was to confess his mistake of texting and driving during the accident. Reggie meant every word he said to the families of Jim and Keith because he truly did not remember he was texting and as soon as he remembered he made the choice to accept his mistake and pay the consequences. He promised to “take this terrible situation and help make the roads a safer place” and that is exactly what he tries to do by going around to schools and other events to talk about his situation. He was brave for stepping up and reading his apology letter to the families because he had already told everyone he was not texting, but at that time he did not remember that he was and the victims’ families

Elizabeth criticizes the Imagery and Characterization of Passos “Three Soldiers”. She feels that in the novel he does not provide enough details and insight into how the soldiers are feeling. He states that the soldiers hate the war but never says why. I do agree with the criticism because he does not really explain a lot about how or why they hate the war and it makes it harder for the audience to get the full effect of the book. “It’s almost worth having been in the army for the joy your freedom gives you” (Passos).

Nick in The Great Gatsby personified the dwindling hope of Americans as they transitioned into the depressing Modernist movement. Prior to the war, Daisy had envisaged a life of happiness with Gatsby, but he did not return from the war soon enough and married Tom instead. Wilson's demeanor after Myrtle's death was delusional, unstable, and almost insane, causing him to think it logical to murder Gatsby. No character in The Great Gatsby possessed a candor personality; all of them lied at one point or another. Gatsby felt that every moment away from Daisy was a tribulation, further driving him to find and marry her.

He wanted all of us, including my mom’s brothers and sisters, to meet his new girlfriends.
In Fahrenheit 451 the society is burning books and not getting any knowledge. I do believe our society is on the brink of doing the same and not learning anything. I believe that our society is making new technology to replace hard books and we are not learning from it. I also think that bradbury is right about the future of the society. In Fahrenheit 451 the society started to read less and less books because, they had made the same books but they were dumbed down.
Ethan never listened to the propaganda, which was to influence the opinions of the mindless creatures in favour of the Health Organisation. His work colleagues were constantly changing as they were always being taken away. Ethan had never thought too much into it, but now the picture was suddenly becoming clearer. As Ethan started his journey home through the polluted and rotting streets, he heard the weekly announcement, “Remember your compulsory psychiatric appointments tomorrow.” Ethan’s face fell; the unqualified, unintelligent psychiatrists always had the same two minute conversation with him. Now that he had suspicions about the Health Organisation, he knew that tomorrow’s appointment was not going to go well.

Montag is nervous and weary, but he knows that whatever happens next will determine his life. The allusion to a show represents the climax that’s about to occur, Beatty and Montag waiting for the big finale. Whatever happens next will include fire, and it will be big.
After Mildred overdoses on the sleeping pills, and the tragedy of Clarisse 's death, Montag Says, “WIll you turn the parlor off?” he asked, “That’s my family.” says Mildred (46). Everyone in this society is obsessed with their technology that they lost the real meaning of family, and they call their T.V.’s their family. This will then lead to less communication because people will be too focused on their phone, rather than having a conversation. In addition to when Montag is at Faber’s house, while Montag is being searched for, Faber says, “I always wanted something very small, something I could talk to, something I could blot out with the palm of my hand, if necessary, nothing that could shout me down, nothing monstrous big” (126). Faber realizes the danger of technology, but also the importance of technology.
