Fahrenheit 451 even reminds us of the "mass society judgments" that lead to self-censorship. Bradbury is a master of the metaphor and that shines through loud and clear in Farenheit 451.

Fahrenheit 451 even reminds us of the "mass society judgments" that lead to self-censorship. I believe reading is fundamentally important for wisdom, more than any other art form. Reading is solitary work. The story develops rather quickly, and there are repeating themes that help the characters themselves and the overall story develop and move forward. Like all great writers though, Bradbury presents his story in such a way that even if these themes. motiffs and metaphors escape an average reader the story still stands on its own and keeps the attention.

FAHRENHEIT 451: The temperature at which book-paper catches fire and burns. PART I IT WAS A PLEASURE TO BURN IT was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history.

D). Fahrenheit 451 is a story that sometimes is hard, not only for the pessimistic world that Bradbury describes but especially for its characters, but this is precisely where I think it lies the genius of this work of Ray Bradbury

Reviews about Fahrenheit 451 (Cascades) (7):
This is a must read book!! But I will say that I have a totally different point of view to the story than what most, in fact, all the reviews and editorials I have seen. I am not a bookworm and so the idea that books are gone is not an apocalyptic idea. The book was written before the internet and the information age. It is WHY the books are burned and WHAT the books represent that should open your eyes and minds while reading this book.

If all you get out of this book is the "removal" of books from society to become more connected to our electronic devices I feel so bad for you.

The point of burning the books is explained. I might give just a couple of spoilers, but everyone knows the premise of 1984 and this book is similar. It is so much more than about books.

It is about censorship and the people wanting it. The government has banned all printed material except for comic books, 3D pornographic magazines, "good old confessions" and trade journals. All other printed material is deemed too offensive to someone. So much in-fighting in society because everyone claiming something offends them. So to make everyone happy, the offensive materials are removed. Because of the year this was written (1953) Ray Bradbury could have not envisioned the internet. If he had, it would have been heavily censored also. In 1953 ideas and knowledge were shared through print as they had been for hundreds of years.

According to the book, the people wanted the offensive materials removed. Because everyone is offended by something then everything is offensive, it must all be destroyed.

For me the novel rings true about how easily people are offended by another person's ideas, thoughts, actions, beliefs. In the story those things are still allowed (they can't control what you think), but without being able to write them down ideas and thoughts die pretty fast.

Ultimately the story is about freedom and not being so judgmental of others lest ye be judged. If you look around today, 11/4/2017, this story has never been more relevant. We have protests and attacks in the streets daily based on ideals and beliefs that clash with others. These clashes occur, rather than people going their separate ways and understanding that the beliefs and ideals of others are just as legitimate as their own. Some groups would rather have a scorched earth policy and destroy everything they hold dear, as long as the other side loses everything as well.
The author of Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury. He has written several other books including The Illustrated Man, A Sound of Thunder, and Dark Carnival. This book is considered to be fiction. The title fits in with the book because 451 Fahrenheit is the temperature at which the books burn at. I believe it adequately encapsulate the message of the text because the whole story is revolved around burning all the books in the town. The author does a very good job at setting up a table of contexts for you. I would say the book is arranged in sections because there is only three. There are ten characters in the story; their names are Guy Montag, Mildred Montag, Captain Beatty, Professor Faber, Clarisse McClellan, Granger, Mrs. Phelps, Mrs. Bowles, Stoneman and Black. The main characters are Guy Montag, Mildred Montag, Beatty, and Faber. The main idea of this story is Guy Montag tries to explain to everyone and his fire chief that books are useful and they shouldn't be burning them, but to be reading them. Guy Montag and Professor Faber try to come up with a plan to overthrow the status quo of books being illegal. Montag only has 24 hours to be able to read any book and then after that he has to return them back to Captain Beatty. I think this is very different from any other book we would read because normally you don’t see reading books as a negative thing. Most people would write about how people need to get up and go enjoy nature or books rather than sitting inside watching television. I agree with Guy Montag for standing up for what he believes in. I think the tragic accident with the seventeen year old girl who thought books were important really got his attention. A huge surprise happens when Guy’s own wife calls the police on him to be arrested for having books in their house. Mrs. Montag gets in a cab with her suitcase and leaves. While Mr. Montag is left to burn his own house down and all of the copies he made of the books. Captain Beatty tries to attain him by sticking him with anesthetic but he destroys the machine in the fire and escapes with some copies. Montag was able to make it downstream and ran into a group called “renegade intellectuals” this group of individuals also have a love for books. They watch the war that was created from afar and see everything get destroyed with bombs. The group moves on and tries to find some civilization to rebuild a community with them. This book was very interesting to read because of how different it was. I would recommend this book to someone else just have a good read. Fahrenheit 451 was published by Ballantine in 1953. You can find this book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Google Play Books for only $11.99.
