Fahrenheit 451 (TV tie-in) / Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 (TV tie-in)

Popis

The hauntingly prophetic classic novel set in a not-too-distant future where books are burned by a special task force of firemen. `Another indispensable classic' The Times `'Ray Bradbury's gift for storytelling reshaped our culture and expanded our world' Barack Obama 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 dystopian 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, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.
