NOW AN HBO FILM STARRING MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND MICHAEL SHANNON

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

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family." But when he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn't live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.

Bradbury, RayRay Bradbury wurde 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois geboren. 1934 zog seine Familie nach Los Angeles, und schon bald entdeckte er seine Leidenschaft für das Schreiben. Mit den Erzählungsbänden "Die Mars-Chroniken" (1950) und "Der illustrierte Mann" (1951), vor allem aber mit "Fahrenheit 451" (1953) wurde er weit über die Grenzen der Science-Fiction hinaus bekannt. In den folgenden Jahren schrieb er neben weiteren Erzählungen zahlreiche Kriminalromane, Essays und Drehbücher. Bradbury gilt heute als einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur. Er starb am 5. Juni 2012 in Los Angeles.
Rezensionen
"Frightening in its implications . . . Mr. Bradbury's account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating." -The New York Times
