Nearly seventy years after its original 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.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

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.

“Brilliant . . . Startling and ingenious . . . Mr. Bradbury’s account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.” —Orville Prescott, The New York Times
“A masterpiece . . . A glorious American classic everyone should read: It’s life-changing if you read it as a teen, and still stunning when you reread it as an adult.” —Alice Hoffman, The Boston Globe
“The sheer lift and power of a truly original imagination exhilarates . . . His is a very great and unusual talent.” —Christopher Isherwood, Tomorrow
“One of this country’s most beloved writers . . . A great storyteller, sometimes even a mythmaker, a true American classic.” —Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
