This book isn't merely some kind of morality play. The story itself follows the transition of Guy Montag, from a book-leery, burn-happy "fireman" into a man who is on the run for not only possessing books, but killing a fellow fireman to protect them. There's action, there's intrigue, there's violence, there's character development and there's a story that you can actually follow and stay interested in. Totally recommended.

Bradbury wrote a classic in this book. There's so much depth to this story. There's the basic plot which gives you a lot to think about, and then there's symbolism as well. What more can you ask for? Can you immagine a world without books? Bradbury has written about that day and about the few people who still love books. Join Montag as he burns books and then realizes what he is doing!

I just read this for the first time due to seeing it in the library as the Clackamas County Big Read pick. What a great story, absolutely fascinating ... amazing prose, a current classic. Deep characters that demand more than what their world is offering. Highly recommended!

"Staff Pick" by ,

Fahrenheit 451 is probably one of the most important books ever written. If the world of this novel comes to pass, I will be this book. (You'll have to read it to see what I mean.)

"Synopsis" by , Nowadays firemen start fires. Fireman Guy Montag loves to rush to a fire and watch books burn up. Then he met a seventeen-year old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future where people could think. And Guy Montag knew what he had to do....
"Synopsis" by , Internationally acclaimed with more than 5 million copies in print, Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury's classic novel of censorship and defiance, as resonant today as it was when it was first published nearly 50 years ago.

Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires...

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning ... along with the houses in which they were hidden.

Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames... never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

Then he met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think... and Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do!
