The system is simple. Everyone understands it. Books are for burning, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

Guy Montag is a fireman whose job it is to start fires—and he enjoys his job. He has been a fireman for ten years, and he has never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questions anything until he meets a seventeen-year-old girl who tells him of a past when people were not afraid. Then Guy meets a professor who tells him of a future in which people could think, and Guy Montag suddenly realizes what he has to do.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kartik Garg | 2/10/2014

    " In Fahrenheit 451, humanity embraces a world without ponderous and innovative ideas, as they instead tend to focus on materialistic objects and themselves. This creates a society where the mind is lacking of imagination and information, as the Television plays a major role restricting man's thought processes. As for the future, nothing can be foretold or fully prevented, but after reading Bradbury's novel, one can easily perceive a lifestyle where the media, television, and movies replace the beauty of the knowledge of books. "
