Shav (KeelahLove) | 621 comments The terrifyingly prophetic novel of a post-literate future.

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 dystopian 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, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.


Heather, Filipe and I are buddy reading this on Febuary 24th. Feel free to join.


Filipe (filipeheath) Thanks!

You should find the interviews with Ray Bradbury they were really interesting and he explains how he came up with the idea. I felt like everything made sense after that.


Alaina (ameserole) Oooo I’ll look into that tomorrow!!
