And where books are banned and Firemen don t put out fires any I might well have read it and rather counter to the spirit of the book then pretty much forgotten it And that s kind of sad because this book is one that most readers know about that s kind of sad because this book is one that most readers know about book that challenges the things we love and et it s also not really all that great I hate to say it but it s a little bit forgettableIt s a short novel and a uick read and it lights the flicker of a flame of thinking about the power of books but it s all just so rushed
SO FAST TO DEVELOP AND ACCELERATE THAT A LOT fast to develop and accelerate that a lot the opportunities to explore deeper are missed Montag the fireman one of the elite who set fire to books burn people s houses to punish them for the knowledge in their books witnesses an old lady start a fire and kill herself because she can t be without her books and meets a oung girl who tells him there s so much to books then just fuel for his fires He takes a book and becomes part of the anti establishmentIn the foreword to the book Ray Bradbury tells us he spent less than 10 dollars hiring the use of a typewriter to write Fahrenheit 451 Sadly sometimes it shows This is just the bare bones of a story lacking the meat to flesh it out into something satisfying horrifying It was written in the 1950s with the Nazi book burnings still fresh in people s minds but long before the wall to wall round the clock interactive television experiences that Bradbury envisions For its time it must have been revolutionary Today it just looks a bit tired and much too rushed This short novel was adapted from five short stories by the author and to be honest #it shows The characters are not well developed there are no sub plots and the progression of the # shows The characters are not well developed there are no sub plots and the progression of the was predictable The only interesting and likeable character Clarisse unexplainably disappears a third of the way into the novel and is never seen again the author admits in the introduction that he should have given Clarisse a proper ending As a book lover I did enjoy the musings on the nature and value of books and their effects on society both good and bad but it did still feel like of a short story or even an essay than a complete novel Rather than making me think I felt like the whole book debate and all its arguments were just handed to the reader on a plate Funnily enough I actually enjoyed the final 20% of the book the most when it became the story of an outcast running from the law in a post apocalyptic world that was the only point at which I felt any tension because the ending was the only part that wasn t predictable and I didn t know whether Guy would be captured or not I wish the novel had been extended to show what happened after the city is bombed and how the men slowly re introduce literacy because that was the part I felt most intrigued about I m glad I read it because it s a classic but it s a strange book and the structure and pacing didn t work for a novel. T where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears Montag begins to uestion everything he has ever known He starts hiding books in his home and when his pilfering is discovered the fireman has to run for his lif.
