The hauntingly prophetic classic novel set in a not-too-distant future where books are burned by a special task force of firemen. Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books. The classic novel of a post-literate future, 'Fahrenheit 451' stands alongside Orwell's '1984' and Huxley's 'Brave New World' as a prophetic account of Western civilization's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity. Bradbury's powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which over fifty years from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock. / A classic of twentieth-century literature from one of the last great visionary science fiction writers. / Reissued in a smart new livery alongside several of Ray Bradbury's other classic works. / Ray Bradbury is the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. / Competition: George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke

Kunders vurdering

b
basto – 17.09.2008

– Ray Bradburys "Fahrenheit 451" handler om brannmannen Guy Montag og hans liv. Hver dag drar han ut på jobb for å tenne på bøker som myndighetene har bestemt er farlig for folket. Slik er den moderne brannmann: en som tenner, ikke en som slukker branner. Livet til Montag fungerer greit helt til en dag nabojenta starter en ny prosess i han. Hun har fått han til å innse at det er noe galt med det samfunnet de lever i. Situasjonen forsterker seg for han når Montag ikke lenge etterpå ser at det finnes personer som vil dø for bøker. Det å brenne bøker betyr at man brenner mennesker også! Hva skal Montag gjøre nå? "Fahrenheit 451" er meget god og fengende roman om et dystopisamfunn der litteratur blir forbudt og myndighetene styrer dine tanker og gjøremål. Boken er veldig tankevekkende, siden det føles utrolig virkelig og meget sannsynlig. Kanskje vi er i ferd med å utvikle oss til et slik samfunn? Bradbury poetiske språk er ikke en stor hinder for å lese denne korte boken. Anbefales på det sterkeste!

-Ikorn – 16.10.2006

– I "Fahrenheit 451" møter vi et samfunn der bøker er forbudt. I stedet for å slukke branner, starter brannmenn dem hver gang det kommer en rapport om at noen eier bøker. Guy Montag er en av dem, og tror han tror på regimet, helt til han møter en ung jente som får ham til å se verden på nye måter. I likhet med de fleste dystopiske romaner er dette en skremmende bok. Som det heter, "et samfunn som brenner bøker vil før eller senere begynne å brenne mennesker". Bradburys stil er poetisk og kan til tider være vanskelig å følge, men han har fantastiske beskrivelser som virkelig treffer deg. Det som likevel er det sterkeste i boka er det faktum at det virker som noe som kan skje. Vårt samfunn er kanskje ikke så sensurert ennå, men hvor lenge er det til? En tankevekkende bok.
