T 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 uestion 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 lif This has been on my TBR for a longgg time and it s only a short book so I don t know why I ve waited this long Title Fahrenheit 451 Author Ray Bradbury Publication Date October 1953 Page Count 243 Pages Rating 35 uote Books are only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget There is nothing magical in them at all The magic is only in what book says How they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us Cover Summary In an unknown year far into the future or at least from the date this novel was written Guy Montag is a fireman Except not the kind of fireman we all know Instead of putting out fires firemen in this time start the fires burning books which are completely banned from society Guy loves his job and feels that Burning books is exactly the right thing to do until he meets a young woman name Clarisse who starts to give him ideas about what else there might be in the world changes his thinking and makes him consider the uestion why What this results in is a turn of events for Guy he begins to doubt his wife s parlour family who live inside the virtual reality walls of his living room Makes him doubt that books are really bad and that is normal for war to break out and be over in a matter of hours Why is the world like this And is there anything Guy can do to change it Put it right Review The risk with reading dystopia which was written 7 decades ago is that it won t have stood the test of time This is not the case with Fahrenheit 451 Instead this novel continues to teach valuable lessons not least the importance of books and reading But also friendship relationships and to be honest it s scary how accurate Bradbury was in his predictions of technology and VR taking over real connections and relationships Thought provoking and in parts terrifying a perfect read for any fan of dystopia
