About the book

image4.0/5.0

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of this timeless classic with a special edition featuring a new foreword by the author and a message that is as relevant today as when it was first published. Since the late 1940s, Ray Bradbury has been revered for his works of science fiction and fantasy. With more than 4 million copies in print, Fahrenheit 451 - originally published in 1953 - remains his most acclaimed work. Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which book paper burns. Fahrenheit 451 is a short novel set in the (perhaps near) future when "firemen" burn books forbidden by the totalitarian "brave new world" regime. The hero, according to Mr. Bradbury, is "a book burner who suddenly discovers that books are flesh and blood ideas and cry out silently when put to the torch." Today, when libraries and schools are still "burning" certain books, Fahrenheit 451 is a work of even greater impact and timeliness.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’πŸ”₯πŸ“š I do love this book. Stunning, beautiful. Good quick read. Side note but it's actually incredible how we as humans have the capacity to memorise entire books. Lately been hearing of how Jesus would've known the entire Old Testament by memory as Jews studied it so much they knew it all by memory. I can barely remember yesterday.. Also fun fact, this book ironically is censored and banned in some schools in the States.
