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.Hide synopsis

I was wanting to add a hardcover version of this great novel to my collection. The seller had a very good price. The book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. I would do business with this seller again.

I have read a few dystopian novels throughout the years, mainly Brave New World and 1984. I kept hearing a good bit about Fahrenheit 451 so I decided to check it out.
