Considered a classic in the fiction genre and still sparks a sense of importance in preserving books for the future of society. Remembered playing an old video game of this novel and enjoyed both for its futuristic and moral battle for society and human beings in oppression.

Ok it really wasnt my choice to just pick up this book and start reading, but i have to admit it wasnt bad. We read it in my English 10A class and at the begining, i didnt really give this book a chance. But as we got further into the story, i realized that i totally agreed with what the author was trying to get across. Its about how life has become so pointless and we dont even think for oursleves anymore. The only things we stop to pay attention to anymore are the things that amuse us. Nobody stops to ask why or how anymore, they just dont care. Everything has to be fast paced and nobody stops to look around and realize the important problems in society. The interesting part is, this book was written about 50 years ago if not more, its kind of creepy how the author predicted the future.

"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!
