{Synopsis} – A beautiful clothbound edition of the internationally acclaimed Fahrenheit 451 – a masterwork of twentieth-century literature.

The terrifyingly prophetic novel of a post-literate future.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.

The classic dystopian novel of a post-literate future, Fahrenheit 451 stands alongside Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World as a prophetic account of Western civilization’s enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity.

Bradbury’s powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.

{My thoughts} – {My thoughts} – This book is interesting. It is futuristic and very engaging for the reader. It is about a guy named {guy montag}. He is a fireman but not the in customary sense of the word. Instead of putting out fires he starts them. The only fires started are the one’s at residences houses where the individuals have books any books. They are banned not allowed and therefore those caught with books are subject to losing all their worldly possessions. This book is about his defiance of such laws, his determination and his will to make a stand for things he believes to be wrong. This book is well written and and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
