  1. 1. Mildred is acting more like a spoiled brat who doesn't want to eat her vegetables, yet in this problem she doesn't want to understand books. Montag, however, is acting like a little kid on Christmas, he wants to understand books and read! Faber is Cindy Lou and Mildred is the Grinch/Grouch.
    2. There is a war happening so something big will happen. I honestly feel that it's just a background to make the story feel real but the bombers will show up later in the story.
    3. Professor Faber is a man Montag met at the park who has books. However continuing on with Part 2, Faber is a new friend that Montag has. Faber is going to teach him about books.
