About this item


About the Book

"Fahrenheit 451 -- the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns..."

Book Synopsis


Sixty years after its originally publication, Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 stands as a classic of world literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Today its message has grown more relevant than ever before.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family." But when he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn't live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.

Finally replaced this book after my husband accidently destroyed mine 7 years ago. Great price and the book cover has a nice texture to it.

I purchased this book for my daughter. She hasn't finished the book. However, as I type this, she's midway through the book. She says it's intense. It's realistic, but the things happening in the book aren't currently happening in our generation. But could potentially happen. Though Mom is hoping it doesn't.
