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.

    This book is so boring and confusing and I’m supposed to be forced to read it and do 75 questions for school and I barely can do it because it’s so confusing and boring. And the chapters are like SUPER long.

    It depicts and predicts our world today and probably tomorrow very accurately. And even 70 years after the novels been published it is still relevant. Also very interesting and engaging. I definitely recommend it.

    I read the book on the occasions and my only concern is Why didn’t they use the original cover??! 🤔🤔🤔 Did they think “oh hey let’s put Michael B Jordan on the cover maybe more people will read is...!!!” The book was great!!! Not for people who don’t have very much imagination🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️ The book has a different way in descriptions that may bore an unimaginative reader.🙏🏾🙏🏾👍🏾
