Fahrenheit 451



Fahrenheit 451 Guy Montag is a fireman In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them 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 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 then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people did not live in fear 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 question everything he has ever known.

    Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways, and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended, which would suggest that it is a failed attempt.There are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate, since contemporary sources suggest paper combusts at 450 degrees Celsius, which in Farenhe Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways, and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended, which would suggest that it is a failed attempt.There are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate, since contemporary sources suggest paper combusts at 450 degrees Celsius, which in Farenheit would bethan 800 degrees The truth is, paper combustion is gradual and dependent on many factors even if some paper might combust at 451F, his title is at best an oversimplification, but Bradbury wasinterested in a punchy message than in constructing a thoughtful and well supported argument.It s not a book about book censorship, but a book about how TV will rot your brain Bradbury himself has stated this again and again, as evidenced in this article which quotes...

    There must be something in books, something we can t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house there must be something there You don t stay for nothingThe burning of books is such an effective tool for controlling the population, so the message of Ray Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 is scarily real If society s wisdom could be taken away, then so could their freedom If knowledge was burnt, then the people would be left in a complete state of utter innocent ignorance There would be noThere must be something in books, something we can t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house there must be something there You don t stay for nothingThe burning of books is such an effective tool for controlling the population, so the message of Ray Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 is scarily real If society s wisdom could be taken away, then so could their freedom If knowledge was burnt, then the people would be left in a complete state of utter innocent ignorance There would be no room for free thought, that way they could be told anything about history and themselves If all books were burnt, then they are just sheep to be led into a future dictated by the government To make it worse the men who do it enjoy it Books have become illegal thus, owning them is a form of disobedience against the state and a violation of the law The books are burnt by a special group of firefighters, yes firefighters, which hunt readers mercilessly When they find them, they burn their beloved ...

    As I write this review, the year is 2012 We do not live in a perfect world in fact, in many ways we don t even live in a good world But one thing I believe with all my heart is that we live in a world which, on the whole, is better than it was fifty years ago Now, I know I m writing with limited perspective and that progression and development hasn t been the same all over the globe and even the definition of those words can change depending on what part of the world you live in But here s As I write this review, the year is 2012 We do not live in a perfect world in fact, in many ways we don t even live in a good world But one thing I believe with all my heart is that we live in a world which, on the whole, is better than it was fifty years ago Now, I know I m writing with limited perspective and that progression and development hasn t been the same all over the globe and even the definition of those words can change depending on what part of the world you live in But here s what I do know the average world life expectancy is higher, the inf...

    Few appreciate irony as much as I do, so understand that I understand this review The message of this book is decent knowledge should not be censored However, the rest of the book is utter shit I found myself actually screaming at several points as Bradbury spent minutes and dozens of metaphors and allusions referring to one insignific...

  9. Lyn says:

    Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that transcends it s dystopian theme and delivers its cautionary message in a timeless fashion, what made this story compelling in 1953 remains provocative It is a strident call to arms, a warning siren of darkness always on the perimeter.Critics have tried to makeof this, and certainly it is an archety...

    The good writers touch life often The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies That is a very unpleasant metaphor, and Fahrenheit 451 is an unpleasant book It feels like it was written by a teenager, and if I were his teacher I d give it a B and not let my daughter date the weird little kid who wrote it.Its protagonist, Montag, lacks any character he changes as Bradbury s shitty story requires him to, from the dumbest kid on the world his The...
