DESCRIPTION

The hauntingly prophetic classic novel set in a not-too-distant future where books are burned by a special task force of firemen.Over 1 million copies sold in the UK.Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.The classic novel of a post-literate future, Fahrenheit 451 stands alongside Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World as a prophetic account of Western civilization's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity.Bradbury's powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, forty years on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.

With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous keros ene upon the wo rld, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands w ere the hands of so me amazing conductor playing ... Fahrenheit 451 is a futuristic science fiction novel showing the dangers of censorship. Written in the early 1950s, it reflects the fears that manifested during America's "Atomic Age," during which arms races and development of weapons of mass destruction made tensions high. Fahrenheit 451 presents a future dystopian American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" are charged with burning any that are found.
