Description
La historia de un sombrío y aterrador futuro Guy Montag pertenece a una extraña brigada de bomberos. Su misión, paradójicamente, no es la de sofocar incendios sino la de provocarlos para quemar libros. Ha sido bombero durante más de 10 años, y siempre le gustó su trabajó. Nunca cuestionó nada ni la emoción de las salidas a medianoche ni el placer de ver las hojas arder hasta que conoció a una niña de diecisiete años que le mostró un pasado en el que la gente no tenía miedo y a un profesor que le habló de un futuro en el que la gente podría ser libre. Y al fin Montag comprendió lo que tenía que hacer. Fahrenheit 451, la novela más célebre del maestro de la ciencia ficción, nos presenta un futuro perturbador: un mundo en el que los libros y la lectura están prohibidos. Porque leer obliga a pensar, y en ese mundo está prohibido pensar. Porque leer impide ser ingenuamente feliz, y en ese mundo hay que ser feliz a la fuerza. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Ray Bradburys internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. 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 zfamily.y But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didnt 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 question 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 life.
