fullDescription
SOON TO BE AN HBO FILM STARRING MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND MICHAEL SHANNON

Sixty years after its originally 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.

        Starred review from October 25, 2010
        After years of working as a fireman—one who burns books and enjoys his work—Guy Montag meets a young girl who makes him question his profession and the values of the society in which he lives. Stephen Hoye's narration is perfectly matched to the subject matter: his tone is low and ominous, and his cadence shifts with the prose to ratchet up tension and suspense. He produces spot-on voices, and his versions of the gruff Captain Beatty, the playful Clarisse, and the fearful professor Faber are especially impressive. A Ballantine paperback.

      • content: bibliophile - This book is absolutely one of my favorites. You'll be surprised how quickly you read this book. It's just absolutely fabulous, blows you way, so you should READ it. In the book it kind of deals with the future, like what's going to happen in the future. I thought this book was very descriptive, but to full of details, everything comes out to you. Which is kind of a good thing since it's so descriptive, you could actually really imagine it. Guy Montag is a usual firefighter, he has a wife(who watched television every single day) who is a bit... not crazy but too plain... his job is to burn all the books, wherever the books are in(usually hidden in the house), since books are illegal. anyways life starts to get more interesting to Guy after he meets his new/young neighbor named Clarisse. Clarisse has a brilliant mind, and is open to everything(new or old) around her. She has confidence around her, right by her side. Sometimes Clarisse and Guy would talk to each other and walk around. But Clarisse is missing, and Guy's wife almost committed suicide... what's happening to Guy's life? After Clarisse disappearance, Guy starts to be strong and starting to be a "rebel," collecting books(yay :D). Will Clarisse come back? Will Guy get caught? Many questions are probably forming in your head. So READ it, trust me... you'll understand more about like, the future, and about how important books are. I think everyone should read it, including YOU!!!!!
