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.

Victor Tanasa a dat nota:

I'm torn between a 3* and a 4* rating. While the novel packs a punch idea-wise, reading enjoyment is not that high.

Ina Fabian a dat nota:

I wish I have liked this book, but unfortunately it wasn’t for me. And that happened many times before with classics. Although the writing style of the book fits the period when it was written, I managed to overcome the missing chapters and the non-existent paragraph breaks. But what about the characters, the plot and the dialogue between the characters? It was all so dull and confusing to read. There were only tiny bits that I liked such as the conversation between the main character and his friend that had put a light over the importance of books. Other than that, unfortunately it is a book that will not stick with me long.

Notă biografică

Ray Bradbury wurde 22. August 1920 in Waukegan in Illinois als Raymond Douglas Bradbury geboren und starb am 5. Juni 2012 in Los Angeles. Er war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller und Drehbuchautor.

Ray Bradbury wuchs als Sohn von Leonard Spaulding Bradbury und der Schwedin Esther Marie Moberg in einer Verlagsfamilie auf. Mit vierzehn zog er mit seiner Familie nach Los Angeles. Schon in der Schule kam sein Schreibtalent zum Vorschein, so dass er 1937 in die "Los Angeles Science Fiction League" und den "Poetry Club" eintrat.

Schon zu dieser Zeit wurden Bradburys Kurzgeschichten in Zeitungen und Zeitschriften abgedruckt. 1947 heiratete er Marguerite McClure, mit der er vier Töchter bekam, und veröffentlichte sein erstes Buch.

1950 gelang ihm er mit Erscheinen der "Mars-Chroniken" der große Durchbruch. Das Werk gehört zusammen mit "Fahrenheit 451" zu Bradburys Bestsellern und zu den meistgelesenen Büchern der Amerikaner.

Im Laufe seines Lebens schrieb er zahlreiche weitere Werke, oftmals unter Pseudonym: Romane, Kurzgeschichten, Gedichte und Drehbücher, zum Beispiel für die Verfilmung von "Moby Dick", und erhielt entsprechend viele Auszeichnungen.

Ray Bradbury starb 2012 in Los Angeles und wurde an einer von ihm selbst ausgesuchten Grabstelle beigesetzt, an der schon vor seinem Tod ein Stein mit der Inschrift "Author of Fahrenheit 451" stand.
