Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by American writer Ray Bradbury, first published in 1953

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by American writer Ray Bradbury, first published in 1953. Often regarded as one of his best works, the novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. I mean, to have firemen burn our houses and our books. We haven't any books. But if we did have some.

Great quality, like new! This is one of my favorite books, it will be great to help myself learning German further. It shipped very quickly too!
Early Waffle
Unfortunately, the book arrived in Italian and I anticipated English. The language of the book was nowhere in the description, so basically it became an unreadable book.
I ordered 1 English copy and ended with 3 German copies instead! At least, they reimbursed me once I returned the 3 titles back.
One big rift between the book and the movie [Fahrenheit 451 (1966) -- Oskar Werner, Julie Christie] is that in the movie the "written word" was completely removed (even from the credits); where as in the book the state was against literature and not technical writing. Books are just symbols of ideas that could have been on the screen also. There is a difference between training and education. Among other reasons the book was a symbol of one mans superiority over another in a world of equals.

I do not want to tell much of the story, as the unfolding is part of the intrigue. However now that houses are fire proof the purpose of firemen is performing a service by burning books to maintain the happy social order.

Naturally one fireman goes awry after several emotional incidences that run counter to his carrier. This leads to all kinds of deviant things like reading. What are you doing now?
Upon starting the review of this book, I should give a couple disclaimers. The first disclaimer is that I listened to this book via audio book. The second disclaimer is that when I listen to audio books, I sometimes find my mind drifting. Now on to the actual review.

This audio version was read by author, Ray Bradbury. While he might be a good author, his voice is rather monotone. I wish that I had had an actual paper copy of this book so that I could sort of follow along from time to time when I let my mind drift. Sometimes I had to go and look at the sparknotes summary so that I could follow along better.

Now to the actual review of the story... As an avid reader, I cannot imagine what it would be like to have all books be illegal. I mean, I do love watching my tv shows, but to never be able to pick up a book and read? To never have known the joys of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. To have never met Katniss, Rue, or Peeta. To have never read Harry Potter, the Private series, or Lord help us, Twilight. The very thought of it is horrible. I love books. I love reading. I cannot imagine a world with none of it and with firemen who actually burn books.

And yet, when Bradbury discribed why books ceased to be, it made sense. Many times I find that our world is becoming entirely too P.C. to be safe. I could see how the world ended up where books ceased to be because minorities and special groups couldn't allow books without equal representation of their group, or a good representation of their group. There are so many opposing groups that it is impossible to please everyone. I mean, imagine if we lived in a world without the Bible. Whether you are religious or not, you are talking about a book that has been around for around 2000 years. No Bible, Koran, Book of Mormon, or any other book ever. That is crazy. I can't even really wrap my head around that idea.

Now, I love to read dystopian novels. I find reading about other peoples views of what the world would be like in a Utopia gone wrong is fascinating. And I thought that this one held so much potential. However, it was the main characters actions that led me to not like this book that much. I understand about wanting to read books, but I don't think their is ever an excuse for murder, whether it is freedom or anger or whatever, the taking of another's life is inexcusable.

My second feeling about this novel is that the ending sort of felt incomplete. I thought that there was more and I was missing a disk or two, but alas, it really was over.

Overall, I felt that the characters were a little two-dimensional and I could not be persuaded to care for them or their outcome. The ending felt incomplete and lacking. The concept was interesting, but it did not pan out as properly as it could have. I am glad to have read it, and I will probably re-read it some day (in paper form) but it is not high on my priority list.

Rating 3/5
Bought this for my students to listen and follow along. Didnt realize it was in a different language.
This book was created in the hopes of a best seller, and the only reason it reached this was because of all the school children that have be required to read this book. Bradbury had a good idea but fell short of a good book. He used too many describing words and wasted them on things, instead of the characters which needed some explaination. This book was written with the hopes of leaving you thinking, but the only thing it left me thinking was " What kind of ending was that"
It is very interesting and strange. I never has been read this kind of book before. It have very strong words inside. It makes me think about our future. Hopefully it won't happen in the future.
