Bradbury states, “.”Beatty glanced instantly at Montag's fingers and his eyes widened the faintest bit.” Montag is extremely curious about books, and the idea of freedom that it drives him crazy.
Positive Thinking William Channing once said, “Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.” In the “Diary of Anne Frank”, Anne is going through hiding from german police and meanwhile, is stuck with her family and anothers. While in “”Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, Louise Ogawa is writing about her tough times during the war. They both are able to stay positive which proves that having a positive attitude it the best way to respond to conflict. While some might have trouble staying optimistic and may think that the best way to respond to conflict is to just avoid it, people should keep a positive mindset because it helps people cope more easily during arduous times, it has beneficial impacts on others, and having a positive outlook has many health benefits.
Jeannette thought positively about both of her parents even though she could have her doubts. “Maybe I wasn’t a complete fool for believing in mine. Or trying to believe in him. It was getting harder” (Walls 168-169). This really sets the tone for the rest of the novel, including leading up to Rex’s diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Throughout the book, Liesel discovers the power that words hold and uses them to help her cope with the hardships of living in Nazi Germany as well as to silently resist the dictatorial rule of Adolf Hitler. In the face of extreme evil accompanied by enormous authority, the ability to recognise one’s potential power allows an individual to express their own opinions and build relationships which aids in the ability to persevere and survive the adverse conditions one is living under as well as reduce the power of the oppressor. In The Book Thief, Liesel’s discovery of the power of words lights a fire and curiosity within her that drives her to steal books, but also allows her to see the world in which she is living, in a new light. She is no longer blindly
The last time she saw her brother. 2. The last time she saw her mother.” The books also are not very valuable, but she steals them anyway. It is also ironic that she takes a book from the book burning where others were burning a pile of books to show respect for Hitler and his ideas. She took great risks to steal the books putting herself and the people she cared about in danger if she were
Montag wanted to read books but it was illegal, so he had to sneak the books from the firehouse. but the firemen figured out and tried to burn his house down but then he just ended up killing all of them. Not reading books also basically drove him insane because he killed them by bashing their head in.

In the past, dictators censored authors. Stalin burnt books and authors of those books in Russia. When Adolf Hitler was chancellor he burnt the books that he disagreed with in the streets of Germany. These actions that the leaders of these countries left the people in the dark, just like in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

The setting helped develop the conflict because they all had similar cotts, which illustrated how the community was so similar and how anyone who was different was looked down at (43). This showed how crazy and unheard of that something different- Kira- survived and was still living after her trial (51). It also helped develop the conflict because this divided community where the rich and the poor were clearly sorted, helped Kira meet Jo because if they didn’t live in the Council Edifice, Thomas would never had heard her cry (119, 123). Likewise, the timing of the story was right because at one point in America, only the rich had running water and the poor still had to get water from outside. This book is set at a time similar to that time, although the location is different.
