451 degrees F set in a dystopian future world, when everything became books prohibited goods because they makes people … know what to think. To prevent the item “dangerous” poison the people, the government uses a team of firefighters to go burn books. The soldiers themselves also do not know why I have to burn, they only know the book banned, and they must be destroyed. Guy Montag is a person like that.
But then one day, Montag meets a naive young girl. She asked him questions left him stunned, making him doubt his life essence. One day, in the course of performing duties, he secretly steal a book, and start from there, his whole world changes.
Ray Bradbury has lent works 451 degrees Fahrenheit to make many interesting ideas and new. The first is that the stagnant society. All the pleasures of the people are very shallow, and deep cultural forms that books are being burned again. Imagine just open a book out but close enough to death to see. Next, the soldiers “fire” in the story was going to fire rather than extinguishing go. This result was a paradoxical society.
Although written for the purpose of criticizing the rise of television and the media of mass and impact it has on society, 451 degrees F still evoke the question why good: because copy books, poetry, literature has a strong impact on that? There are people willing to die for them, there are those who want to destroy them, and there are those who change their whole life just because. Why? Books are not the truth. The book does not hold all the answers. Ideas they contain purely subjective of the author, that the character Beatty in the story also made an argument is very plausible that no two books written together on a topic but agreed together all. So we prefer them why so much? This is a very difficult question to answer, and will probably never be answered satisfactorily.
451 degrees F prose sometimes slow. Bradbury’s literary style when writing very long very, very exuberant, seemed would never end. Of course, this is the choice of the author’s art, because in a book showing the dangers of books, that what does not boast the potential strength of the pen? But everyone should know that this work requires the reader to be patient than usual.
In summary, 451 degrees Fahrenheit is a great book and rich in meaning. Whether you’re a fan of science fiction (Science Fiction / Sci Fi) or not, this will be a piece worth reading.
