Fahrenheit 451

By (author)Ray Bradbury


In “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, Guy Montag’s job as a fireman is to destroy illegal printed books, but a chance meeting with a young neighbor who introduces him to a world of ideas and freedom causes him to question everything he has ever known, including his bland life and mindless television. As he discovers a past where people lived without fear and a present where books shape ideas, Montag’s world is turned upside down, and he begins to reexamine his purpose and existence.


Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But when he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past 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, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.
