Description


Fahrenheit 451: la temperatura a la que el papel se enciende y arde. Guy Montag es un bombero y el trabajo de un bombero es quemar libros, que est n prohibidos porque son causa de discordia y sufrimiento. El Sabueso Mec nico del Departamento de Incendios, armado con una letal inyecci n hipod rmica, escoltado por helic pteros, est preparado para rastrear a los disidentes que a n conservan y leen libros. Como 1984, de George Orwell, como Un mundo feliz, de Aldous Huxley, Fahrenheit 451 describe una civilizaci n occidental esclavizada por los medios, los tranquilizantes y el conformismo. La visi n de Bradbury es asombrosamente prof tica: pantallas de televisi n que ocupan paredes y exhiben folletines interactivos; avenidas donde los coches corren a 150 kil metros por hora persiguiendo a peatones; una poblaci n que no escucha otra cosa que una ins pida corriente de m sica y noticias transmitidas por unos diminutos auriculares insertados en las orejas. Fahrenheit 451 es el m's convincente de todos los infiernos conformistas. Kingsley Amis. La novela m's c lebre de Ray Bradbury, una historia de un sombr o y horroroso futuro. 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.
