Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. 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 then 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.

When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

    By kacif2001
    I read this book for book club and while I was reluctant, it wasn’t a terrible book!
  • Why did I read this

    By This was epic
    My mom told me to read this and I am only in 4th grade! I don’t even know what happened. It is just like to kill a mockingbird, where I don’t understand anything.

    You dim wit...if anything The Giver ended like this book. Do some research...see which was wrote first and which second.

    This book had almost the same ending as The Giver book!!!!!!!!! 😩 I'm disappointed in this book and how I spent $14 on it
  • Beware

    By DudeThatReads
    We can't let our society get to this point and guess what we are on the fast track to becoming exactly what Bradbury describes. His guesses at what society would be like and the technology we would have are uncanny.....
  • A Science Fiction Masterpiece!

    By Dwardeng
    Ray once said that this novel was his only Science Fiction work and that most of what he wrote otherwise, was Fantasy. I have to disagree. Nonetheless, this book should be required reading in high schools. Freedom of thought and the printed word are at stake. Paper burns at 451 F! The movie is also good.
  • Great book not suggested for people who like happy endings

    By Disney-pro 13
    I recommend that really strong readers read this book this book shows you the importance of books. The author of this book Ray Bradbury is a end of the world writer I don't want to spoil the book so I recommend that people should read this book it's a classic
  • Love this Book

    By albeatz89
    I absolutely love this novel. However, I will not purchase it on ibooks because of the comments regarding the plethora of errors. This is sad because it is hands down one of my favorite works of art.
