As the story goes on, he meets people and does things that change his thoughts and actions. He ends up reading books and seeing that they have meaning. By the end of the novel, Montag can recite parts of books off the top of his head. Although there were many events and people that changed Montag, some of the most important people and events that changed him were a girl named Clarisse, burning someone with their books, and his own house being burnt down.
Although the old Montag could only find pleasure in erasing the past, the influence of Clarisse changes his view of who he is from that of a fireman, who only destroys, to an asbestos-weaver who stops fires.
