Ng of slavery which technology in governments hands could bring to us if we accepted and used It Mindlessly Irresponsibly And Without Uestioning It mindlessly irresponsibly and without uestioning It warning of what government would do with technology in order to stalk people and control them However Bradbury s book is not so pesimistic as eg Orwell s ones since it ends with hope or change in the utureI would recomend the book to everybody who likes good sci Touch of Enchantment fi and over who has her or his mind open to thinking aboututure with accepting that it could not be so nice as goverments and authorities trying to persuade usHave a nice reading Fahrenheit 451 is a book I would probably have said I d read if you d asked me I could probably have told you the basic premise a dystopian land where books are ba This short novel was adapted a dystopian land where books are ba This short novel was adapted When Dads Don't Grow Up five short stories by the author and to be honest it shows The characters are not well developed there are no sub plots and the progression of the story was predictable The only interesting and likeable character Clarisse unexplainably disappears a third of the way into the novel and is never seen again the author admits in the introduction that he should have given Clarisse a proper ending As a book lover I did enjoy the musings on the nature and value of books and their effects on society both good and bad but it did stilleel like of a short story or even an essay than a complete novel Rather than making me think I Miles from Kara felt like the whole book debate and all its arguments were just handed to the reader on a plate Funnily enough I actually enjoyed theinal 20% of the book the most when it became the story of an outcast running Pee Wee Scouts treasury (Pee Wee Scouts, from the law in a post apocalyptic world that was the only point at which Ielt any tension because the ending was the only part that wasn t predictable and I didn t know whether Guy would be captured or not I wish the novel had been extended to show what happened after the city is bombed and how the men slowly re introduce literacy because that was the part I elt most intrigued about I m glad I read it because it s a classic but it s a strange book and the structure and pacing didn t work or a novel. T where people didn’t live in ear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears Montag begins to uestion everything he has ever known He starts hiding books in his home and when his pilfering is discovered the ireman has to run or his lif. ,
Around him he realises that he is not happy in his lifestyle of orced gaiety and non conflict He also to not happy in lifestyle of orced gaiety and non conflict He also comes to that no one else around him is happy either and that their lifestyles are meaningless and also emotionlessThe beauty of this story is in it unerring ability to make the reader uestion hisher existence and the meaning of life In the same manner as HG Wells depicted the Eloi in his book The Time Machine as being human creatures who have evolved into childlike and uninspired creature through living a Utopian type existence where there every need is met and there exists no conflict or hardship or anything else to spark thinking there exists no conflict or hardship or anything else to spark thinking and progress I saw parallels in the thinking process between HG Wells and Ray Bradbury and the recognition that a perfect Utopian environment would ultimately lead to the downfall of mankind as it would strip away our survival skills and instincts and we would not be able to cope with the resurgence of conflict and evil which is always bound to reappear in life Perfection can only ever be a thin veneer over the underlying issues inherent in societies and human interaction which each otherThis is an exceptional book and an inspired story Fahrenheit 451 1984 these books should still be reuired reading or everyone Ray Bradbury does the same in this book as Orwell does in 1984 showing you an all too possible and all too close uture of socialism and a society of orced ignorance These books are not listed in horror but they should be 451 shows how a society can be undone by just a ew carefully planned laws that look good at irst He also shows that humanity will not be com It is Bradbury classic I admire how Bradbury was able to predict current socienty and technology development Devices used by characters in books like a shell radio or TV wall which is even interactive are very similar to devices we have now Moreover behavior of the people in the book is very close to actual ones as well it means that there is only one approach to life and everybody who does not A treatise on the law of marital rights in Texas follow it is considered to be bad and to be against the system From my point of view the book is warni. Hem out His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities the printed book along with the houses in which they are hidden Montag never uestions the destruction and ruin his actions produce returning each day to his bland life and wife Mildred who spends all day with her televisionamily But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor Clarisse who introduces him to a pas. ,

I listened to the audio book of Fahrenheit 451 narrated by Tim Robbins The narration was excellent and Tim Robbins certainly made the most of Ray Bradbury s very vigorous and to the point style of writing in certain parts of the book to such an extent that I elt as if I was running with Guy Montag and experiencing his ear pounding heart and uncertaintyThis is one of the most uniue dystopian novels I have read and is right up there with HG Wells with its incredible philosophical insight into human society what makes us tick individually and as a group and how it could all go incredibly wrong mankind as a group makes incorrect choices along the leading into the uture what the pathway leading into the uture What this book incredibly scary is how horribly possible it all is and how awful the black cloud of illiteracy and ignorance is and how it limits people s choices and abilities to progress and grow All this being said however this book does end on an optimistic and hopeful note which is invigorating and uplifting especially given the momentous issues that are currently staring mankind in the ace like climate crisis and the ourth industrial revolutionGuy Montag is a ireman whose job involves the destruction of books and the belongings and homes of people who go against the law of the nation and keep and read books The reader is introduced to Guy in a happy state of enjoyment over his nation and keep and read books The reader is introduced to Guy in a happy state of enjoyment over his burning and you get the impression that he is happy and ulfilled in his life and his workComing out of the train station at the end of his work shift Guy meets Clarice an unusual young woman who is a thinker The reader uickly realises that she is incredibly uniue in this time of book burning and technological dominance over creativity thinking and in essence the spirit of man Guy listens to what Clarice has to say nothing specific but a series of innocent ramblings with enough substance to make him think She ends the evening by asking him if he is happy Is he happy As this leading uestion and an immediate and alarming set of circumstances in his home life cause Guy Montag to consider the meaning of his whole life and the lives of those.
