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 enjoys 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.… (mais)

In a future dystopian world, firemen start fires rather than put them out. In particular, their specific task is to burn any printed material they find. Books have been banned by a government determined to control thought, replacing them instead with a barrage of mindless video content designed to keep people happy and passive. Guy Montag has been a fireman for several years without questioning the virtue of his actions. However, after seeing his free-thinking young neighbor ‘disappeared’, his wife attempt suicide, and an elderly lady set her own house and herself on fire as an act of protest, Montag becomes disillusioned with his current path and decides to pursue a life of personal growth through reading forbidden texts. Following a violent act of revolution, he joins a clandestine resistance movement aimed at preserving the content of books in its collective memory for a time to come when the old order might be restored.

It perhaps goes without saying that Fahrenheit 451 is itself an incendiary book that has had a lasting effect on generations of readers. Written shortly after the end of World War II, this is a work that is very much a product of the Cold War era when there was a growing fear of totalitarian regimes that might take away free will and personal freedom of thought and action. Of course, Bradbury’s novel is best known (and justly celebrated) for its central theme of what we lose with the destruction of knowledge, as symbolized by the wanton demolition of books. Certainly, this became a poignant message for me as well, especially when Montag unites with a group of fellow booklovers who are intent on remembering all of those words and thoughts until they can be written down again; indeed, these intellectuals consider themselves to be “nothing more than dust jackets for books”.

What I was not expecting, though, was for this to also be such an overtly anti-war novel. The story is framed at a time when the ruling government is on the verge of battle with an unnamed foe and the climactic scene actually portrays enemy bombers leveling the city from which Montag has escaped. (Indeed, the entire story is set in an unspecified year during the twenty-first century after a couple of nuclear wars have already been fought and won.) This made for compelling reading and Bradbury’s use of the Phoenix bird parable as a metaphor for a society rising from its own ashes was striking. On the other hand, this was not perfect story-telling: for instance, Bradbury’s vision of the technology in place roughly 100 years in the future proved to be wildly understated. Still, this is a novel that has stood the test of times because of its ideas and images, which is reason enough to overlook some shortcomings in its plot. ( )

Bradbury's writing in this book is absolutely fabulous. Of the books that I have read by him this is probably the best. The Illustrated Man is a close 2nd. The Martian Chronicles are interesting but not as well crafted into a whole as Farhenheit 451. Which makes sense because that is a collection of short stories. Something Wicked This Way Comes I found difficult to get through. I still need to read his Dandelion Wine. Farhenheit 451 although a short novel (novelette?) it is still long enough for Bradbury to develop Montag and his context. I find it interesting that in this novel Bradbury predated Neil Postman's critique of the effect of the television's impact on the public commons. It is similar to the current critique of social media's impact on public conversation.

The two short stories included in this edition The Playground and And The Rock Cried Out are very dark. The Playground deals with childhood as something to be avoided at all costs. And The Rock Cried Out is an interesting commentary on what it is like to be part of the privileged hegemony when that hegemony collapses.

I like this rating system by ashleytylerjohn of LibraryThing (https://www.librarything.com/profile/ashleytylerjohn) that I have also adopted:
(Note: 5 stars = rare and amazing, 4 = quite good book, 3 = a decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful.) ( )

Sixty years after its original publication, Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 stand as a classic of world literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Today its message has grown more relevant than ever before.

I don't know what to say. Honestly, I don't. This book was amazing and everything made sense. Nevertheless, I think I'm not qualified to discuss it.
Fahrenheit 451 is a book that, in my opinion, everyone should read because it has a very important message. I didn't really like this book but I appreciate it for what it taught me.
Ray Bradbury was a genius. ( )

Classique parmi les classiques, Fahrenheit 451 est à la SF ce que le Dracula de Stocker est au fantastique. Cette œuvre est une contre-utopie à la mesure du Meilleur des mondes de Huxley ou à 1984 de Orwell. C’est dire…
 
This intriguing idea might well serve as a foundation on which to build a worst of all possible worlds. And to a certain extent it does not seem implausible. Unfortunately, Bradbury goes little further than his basic hypothesis. The rest of the equation is jerry-built.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away.
But that's the wonderful things about man; he never gets so discouraged or disgusted that he gives up doing it all over again, because he knows very well it is important and worth the doing.
But remember that the Captain belongs to the most dangerous enemy of truth and freedom, the solid unmoving cattle of the majority. Oh, God, the terrible tyranny of the majority.
I'm afraid of children my own age. they kill each other. Did it always use to be that way? My uncle says no. Six of my firends have been shot in the last year alone. Ten of them died in car wrecks. I'm afraid of them and they don't like me because I'm afraid. My uncle says his grandfather remembered when children didn't kill each other. But that was a long time ago when they had things different. They believed in responsibility, my uncle says. Do you know, I'm responsible. I was spanked when I needed it, years ago. And I do all the shopping and housecleaning by hand.
The same infinite detail and awareness could be projected through the radios and televisors, but are not. No, no, it's not books at all you're looking for! Take it where you can find it, in old phonograph records, old motion pictures, and in old friends; look for it in nature and look for it in yourself. Books were 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 books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us. Of course you couldn't know this, of course you still can't understand what I mean when I say all this.
