[SR: 617276], Audio CD, [EAN: 9780786176274], Audiobook, Blackstone Audio Books, Blackstone Audio Books, Book, [PU: Blackstone Audio Books], Blackstone Audio Books, In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury's classic, frightening vision of the future, firemen don't put out fires--they start them in order to burn books. Bradbury's vividly painted society holds up the appearance of happiness as the highest goal--a place where trivial information is good, and knowledge and ideas are bad. Fire Captain Beatty explains it this way, "Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs.... Don't give them slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy." Guy Montag is a book-burning fireman undergoing a crisis of faith. His wife spends all day with her television "family," imploring Montag to work harder so that they can afford a fourth TV wall. Their dull, empty life sharply contrasts with that of his next-door neighbor Clarisse, a young girl thrilled by the ideas in books, and more interested in what she can see in the world around her than in the mindless chatter of the tube. When Clarisse disappears mysteriously, Montag is moved to make some changes, and starts hiding books in his home. Eventually, his wife turns him in, and he must answer the call to burn his secret cache of books. After fleeing to avoid arrest, Montag winds up joining an outlaw band of scholars who keep the contents of books in their heads, waiting for the time society will once again need the wisdom of literature. Bradbury--the author of more than 500 short stories, novels, plays, and poems, including The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man--is the winner of many awards, including the Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America. Readers ages 13 to 93 will be swept up in the harrowing suspense of Fahrenheit 451, and no doubt will join the hordes of Bradbury fans worldwide. --Neil Roseman, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 67221011, Action & Abenteuer, 67916011, Anthologien, 67220011, Buch zum Film, 67923011, Familiensagen, 67924011, Historisch, 67223011, Horror, 67926011, Krieg, 273042011, Medizin, 273043011, Metaphysisch, 67925011, Männerabenteuer, 67219011, Märchen, 67217011, Politisch, 55229011, Religion & Esoterik, 65642011, Schwul & Lesbisch, 1322750031, Seeabenteuer, 67218011, Sport, 67927011, Western, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58104011, Science Fiction, 58105011, Abenteuer, 58040011, Alternative Weltgeschichte, 58106011, Anthologien, 58110011, Geschichte & Kritik, 58117011, Graphic Novels, 58109011, High-Tech, 58116011, Kurzgeschichten, 58111011, Serien, 273012011, Space Opera, 57127011, Fantasy & Science Fiction, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 59283011, Jugendbücher, 59284011, Biographien & Memoiren, 59291011, Geschichte & Historische Romane, 59298011, Horror, 59364011, Körper & Geist, 59350011, Literatur & Belletristik, 59606011, Mangas, 59299011, Mystery, 59300011, Nachschlagewerke, 59344011, Religion & Spiritualität, 59360011, Schule & Sport, 59305011, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 59373011, Soziale Themen, 59599011, Wissenschaft & Technik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Fahrenheit 451 - new book

ISBN: 9780786176274

ID: 978078617627

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think.
