This has been on my TBR for a longgg time and it s only a short book so I don t know why I ve waited this long Title Fahrenheit 451 Author Ray Bradbury Publication Date October 1953 Page Count 243 Pages Rating 35 uote Books are only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget There is nothing magical in them at all The magic is only in what book says How they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us Cover Summary In an unknown year far into the future or at least from the date this novel was written Guy Montag is a fireman Except not the kind of fireman we all know Instead of putting out fires firemen in this time start the fires burning books which are completely banned from society Guy loves his job and feels that Burning books is exactly the right thing to do until he meets a young woman name Clarisse who starts to give him ideas about what else there might be in the world changes his thinking and makes him consider the uestion why What this results in is a turn of events for Guy he begins to doubt his wife s parlour family who live inside the virtual reality walls of his living room Makes him doubt that books are really bad and that is normal for war to break out and be over in a matter of hours Why is the world like this And is there anything Guy can do to change it Put it right Review The risk with reading dystopia which was written 7 decades ago is that it won t have stood the test of time This is not the case with Fahrenheit 451 Instead this novel continues to teach valuable lessons not least the importance of books and reading But also friendship relationships and to be honest it s scary how accurate Bradbury was in his predictions of technology and VR taking over real connections and relationships Thought provoking and in parts terrifying a perfect read for any fan of dystopia

I read the first four or five pages four or five times Once I got myself into dystopian mode then I was flying Frankly this book blew me away Published in 1953 the future Bradbury imagined has well and truly arrived I m not talking about robo dog and book burning in a literal sense but the mind numbing effect of social media the empty diet of visual pap and meaningless tripe so many of us call entertainment So many scenes in this book stand out slap you hard in the face for being willfully ignorant about important issues for being politically apathetic Let s hope that we will be spared the cataclysmic ending Bradbury envisioned The writing is efficient rather than lyrical but the intellectual content is astounding Would recommend

Earphones Award Winner AudioFile Magazine Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of 20th century literature set in a bleak dystopian future narrated here by Academy Award winning actor Tim Robbins 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. This is a must read book But I will say that I have a totally different point of view to the story than what most in fact all the reviews and editorials I have seen I am not a bookworm and so the idea that books are gone is not an apocalyptic idea The book was written before the internet and the information age It is WHY the books are burned and WHAT the books represent that should open your eyes and minds while reading this bookIf all you get out of this book is the removal of books from society to become connected to our electronic devices I feel so bad for youThe point of burning the books is explained I might give just a couple of spoilers but everyone knows the premise of 1984 and this book is similar It is so much than about booksIt is about censorship and the people wanting it The government has banned all printed material except for comic books 3D pornographic magazines good old confessions and trade journals All other printed material is deemed too offensive to someone So much in fighting in society because everyone claiming something offends them So to make everyone happy the offensive materials are removed Because of the year this was written 1953 Ray Bradbury could have not envisioned the internet If he had it would have been heavily censored also In 1953 ideas and knowledge were shared through print as they had been for hundreds of yearsAccording to the book the people wanted the offensive materials removed Because everyone is offended by something then everything is offensive it must all be destroyedFor me the novel rings true about how easily people are offended by another person s ideas thoughts actions beliefs In the story those things are still allowed they can t control what you think but without being able to write them down ideas and thoughts die pretty fastUltimately the story is about freedom and not being so judgmental of others lest ye be judged If you look around today 1142017 this story has never been relevant We have protests and attacks in the streets daily based on ideals and beliefs that clash with others These clashes occur rather than people going their separate ways and understanding that the beliefs and ideals of others are just as legitimate as their own Some groups would rather have a scorched earth policy and destroy everything they hold dear as long as the other side loses everything as well

    This is a must read book!! But I will say that I have a totally different point of view to the story than what most, in fact, all the reviews and editorials I have seen. I am not a bookworm and so the idea that books are gone is not an apocalyptic idea. The book was written before the internet and the information age. It is WHY the books are burned and WHAT the books represent that should open your eyes and minds while reading

    Of all books. I'm disappointed, Simon & Schuster. Of all books.

    How am I supposed to read a book about a d

    Never read this before and have always wanted to. Got to this point and noticed the page numbers jumped from 18 to 47. Am I just dumb and this is how the book was written, or am I actually missing pages? Any help would be much appreciated.

    'It was a pleasure to burn.'

    It's such a famous opening line and despite the fact that I'd never read Fahrenheit 451, one I've seemed

    I read the first four or five pages four or five times. Once I got myself into dystopian mode, then I was flying. Frankly, this book blew me away. Published in 1953, the future Bradbury imagined has well and truly arrived. I'm not talking about robo dog and book burning in a literal sense, but the mind numbing effect of social media, the empty diet of visual pap and meaningless tripe so many of us call entertainment So

    Fahrenheit 451 is a book I would probably have said I'd read if you'd asked me. I could probably have told you the basic premise: a dystopian land where books are banned and 'Firemen' don't put out fires any. I might well have read it and rather counter to the spirit of the book then pretty much forgotten it. And that's kind of sad because this book is one that most readers know about, a book that challenges t

    This has been on my TBR for a longgg time and it's only a short book so I don't know why I've waited this long!

  8. says:

    This short novel was adapted from five short stories by the author, and to be honest, it shows. The characters are not well

  9. says:

    This is another worryingly prescient book written in the middle of the last century. A dystopian nightmare that is becoming all too real.

    As is explained in the book, Farenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns. Society has "developed" to the point where people are immersed in a world created by gigantic video screens, tiny
