[Read by Christopher Hurt]Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury's classic novel of censorship and defiance, as resonant today as it was when it was first published more than fifty years ago. This novel is offered here in its fiftieth Anniversary special edition, including an afterword and a coda by the author. The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until 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 in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

Wow. What a great story. I put off reading this one for a long time because I assumed it was going to be too Sci-Fi for me. Man, am I dumb. I loved everything about this one. I can’t even imagine a world where books are illegal. I would get torched for sure. Bradbury has some serious writing chops. ...

3.5 Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
This was a reread but I read it about fifteen years ago so I didn’t remember all that much. I didn’t like the dream-like quality of the prose, but I have been in a sufficiently black mood to appreciate the feelings of despair throughout. The two kind of balanced out. It does meander somewhat and...

When a book is compared to a great classic, it’s unavoidable that the reader would have high expectations. In many reviews Fahrenheit 451 is compared to George Orwell’s masterpiece 1984. Sadly, Fahrenheit 451, is not even a little brother to 1984. So, my review is in this comparison. In 1984 Geo...
