About the Book

Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires...

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning ... along with the houses in which they were hidden.

Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames... never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

Then he met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think... and Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do!

About the Edition

Fahrenheit 451: la temperatura a la que el papel se enciende y arde. Guy Montag es un bombero y el trabajo de un bombero es quemar libros, que están prohibidos porque son causa de discordia y sufrimiento.El Sabueso Mecánico del Departamento de Incendios, armado con una letal inyección hipodérmica, escoltado por helicópteros, está preparado para rastrear a los disidentes que aún conservan y leen libros. Como 1984, de George Orwell, como Un mundo feliz, de Aldous Huxley, Fahrenheit 451 describe una civilización occidental esclavizada por los medios, los tranquilizantes y el conformismo.La visión de Bradbury es asombrosamente profética: pantallas de televisión que ocupan paredes y exhiben folletines interactivos; avenidas donde los coches corren a 150 kilómetros por hora persiguiendo a peatones; una población que no escucha otra cosa que una insípida corriente de música y noticias transmitidas por unos diminutos auriculares insertados en las orejas.
