Farenheit 451 es una metáfora de la intolerancia aplicada a la cultura, a la raserización y eliminación de la conciencia humana. Teniendo similitudes con 1984, para mi gusto la supera por la simpleza de su planteamiento: bomberos del futuro que en lugar de apagra incendios, los provocan, y siempre de libros. ¿Cabe mayor aberración que imaginar un futuro de la humanidad idéntico al pasado más rancio, en el que se quemaban bibliotecas y se trataba de acabar con la libertad de pensamiento?
La novela supone también una llamada de atención. La inteligencia del ser humano es lo más sagrado que tenemos como especie. La capacidad de libre pensamiento ha de verse alimentada con los conocimientos que otros han decidido transmitirnos a lo largo de la historia a través de los libros. Los libros son necesarios para que el ser humano no se convierta en la más inmunda y anodina de las bestias. Farenheit constituye una utopía distópica (aquella que se aleja de un mundo ideal, en la que el bombero Montag toma conciencia por sí solo de que las cosas no son como deberían ser. Su libertad de pensamiento le permite decidir por sí mismo. Su curiosidad le empuja a conocer el elemento que su trabajo le obliga a destruir.
Una novela fascinante que debería ser de obligada lectura.

The first thing that struck me was the style. It reads a bit like a fairy tale - Brothers Grimm - the language at times has a poetic quality, at times even puerile. The pace is unusually fast. There are no chapters as such, just the three parts and the book burns through fiercely. But there are some important messages going on here and some warnings about the unpredictable or perhaps even predictable course society is following. If they are not burning books they will be censoring the internet. It is about control. We all know the historical precedents. So for me this book is a reminder to be vigilant!
There is a very telling dialogue with Beatty, Montag`s fireman colleague who sets out very clearly the reasons why people need to be controlled. This episode is striking and deserves close attention.
I was reminded a bit of Orwell`s Animal Farm in that we have a fairly short story with a surreal like quality but with a very powerful message at its core and a warning of the perils which are ever present.
At 225 pages split into three parts this book is small, particularly when its larger than average font is considered.
It's a long time since I've read a Ray Bradbury book (since I studied The Illustrated Man in 1983!!). I have little interest in science fiction or fantasy novels although enjoy some dystopian novels so I approached this cautiously but hopefully.
There is a great quote at the start of the book "If they give you ruled paper, write the other way". Maybe this is a hint of the rebellion in this book.
I always ignore introductions to "classic" books as they are usually written by sycophantic admirers and give away too much of the novel (note to publishers... always put these at the end of novels not the beginning). This introduction is written by the author himself and worth reading - it gives context and sets the scene of him writing the story.
I tried very hard to enjoy this book but it was ultimately too much of a struggle and took a huge amount of time to read. The language is overplayed with some of the descriptive sections not actually describing anything at all. I wanted to try to get to know the characters but didn't get anywhere close.
I love the idea of the concept of TV taking over from books and how this effects society so was unsure how this author managed to make the narrative so uninspiring.
The novel was controversial when it was released and I can see why but the world has moved very far since then and, without the shock factor, this book is more of a curiosity than a classic.
1 - tyranny comes from bottom, the people
2 - reality tv shows are v similar to the shows that society watches in the book
3 - predicted the banning of 'offensive' material against minorities, in the book to the point where all literature is banned
4 - intoxicants to keep people going has come true with anti-depressants proscribed like sweets today and other drug use.
5 - the education system in the west has become intellectually impoverished outside science, few university graduates have any grasp of philosophy or history which used to be a given. In the book they are completely dropped.
6 - predicted flat screen tvs and earphones which are used by people to shut themselves off from society
Like 1984,the left love this book despite it actually being more applicable to them than the right.
