    Description
    50th Anniversary Edition.

    Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy: There is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.

    The classic novel of a post-literate future, 'Fahrenheit 451' stands alongside George Orwell's '1984' and Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' as a prophetic account of Western civilisation's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity.

    Bradbury's powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, fifty years on from its first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.
