The Key to Change....... is to Let go of Fear.
Some people think change is a bad thing, but in some cases change can be a good thing. Even the worst of people can change. No matter how old/young you are you can change to be a better people. In the novel Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury Mr. Halloway, Will, and Jim has have changed by the carnival and the freaks.
In the beginning of the story Mr. Halloway is a kind, caring father that does not relate to his son because of him age. Throught out the story Mr. Halloway has relized that age doesn't matter to the people that you love. In the chapter ______ Mr.Dark comes to get the boys while also crushing his hand, and left for the dust witch to be killed. While the Dust witch tries to kill Mr. Halloway he starts to relized that he isnt as old as he thinks, and with the cofiendient that he has with his age he drives the dust witch away. Also Mr. Halloway has changed from the beginning of the story because he is more protective of his Will and Jim. When Mr. Dark was looking for the boys Mr. Halloway said " Hide"(40 Bradbury) to Will and Jim to protect them so Mr. Dark wouldn't get them. Not only is Mr.Halloway more confindent, and protective he is also persistent as well. Mr.Halloway went throught pain with Mr. Dark in crushing his left hand(____ Bradbury). Then when he volinterred himself to do the trick with the bullet he whisped with his lips" The crescent moon I have marked on the bullet is not a crescent moon. Its my own smile. I have put my smile on the bullet on the rifle."(47 Bradbury), he knew that happiness kills evil so when he did the trick insteaded of the dust witch living she died. Mr. Halloway went through all this pain and still manage to bring the boys home. Thats persistent ,but many people dont think that this is true they say that he went through all this pain to feel young again. but Mr.Halloway went throught all this pain because he was protecting the boys from the carnivel. That is how Mr.Halloway has changed throught the novel.
As well as Mr.Halloway Will has changed too. Will used to be the caisous, timid boy, but then through out the novel he has changed to be this action thrilled, sensitive grown up boy. Then when Will was running after the newphew Jim was running towards the free rides. Then when Will seen Jim trying to get on the merry-go-round Will cried "Jim" ( 23 Bradbury) Then knocked Jim out of the way and thats when Mr.Cooger turned really old. thats one of the ways Will is action thrilled.Then in the same chapter when they seen how old Mr.Cooger got Will "was sick over the side of the carousel"(23 Bradbury) because he never seen someone that close to death before.Thats how Will is a sensitive boy. Then again everybody gets a little freaked out when they see someone close to death, but then again Will hated Mr.Cooger and when you hate someone that loves his father a lot. He said " Oh, Dad, Dad, I dont care how old you are, ever! I care what, i dont care anything! oh Dad, I love you!"(49 Bradbury) That is how changed from being a timid boy to being a action thrilled, sesitive, grown up boy.
At last we have Jim. In the beginning of the novel Jim was a kinda good, heartless, boy, but then he has changed to be a leadership ,evil, not bright boy. In the beginning of the novel a lighting rods sales man came up to sell lighting rods he was talking to the boys and started to describe Jim as" His hair was a wild, thick, and the glossy color os waxed chestnuts. His eyes, fixed to some distant point within himself, were mint rock-crystal green."(1 Bradbury) the colors black and green are colors of evil and then in chapter 18 when Mr. Dark handed them a card say that "our specialty: to examine, oil, polish, and repair Death-Watch Beetles" Then Will was like "you must be the Tattood Man" Then Jim was like "No! Hes the Illustated man, theres a difference" then with that comment Mr. Dark was pleased and then considerd Jim to be his evil partner. Next In chapter 12 Jim sneaks out to go see the carnivel without tell Will, so when Will sees him he yells"Jim! Wait for me" (12 brudbury) thats saying that Jim takes charge of the sitiuaton and that hes a leader not a follower. Also when Will and Mr. Halloway went to go save Jim from Mr. Dark they found him Riding the merry-go-round. Will went to go save im saying "Jim, get off dont leave me here"(51 Bradbury) while reaching for his hand and Jim wouldnt reach for it, and desided to stay on the merry-go-round. Thats How Jim is not a bright boy. You can say that he was just trying new things, but Will and Mr.halloway has talked about how evil and dangerous the carnivel is so he knew the risk. That is how Jim changed.
Change can be good and bad in some cases. Though out the novel Mr. Halloway, Will and Jim have changed. Mr. Halloway has changed and hes old, and then Will and Jim have changed and there young.
