Fahrenheit 451 ofrece la historia de un sombrío y horroroso futuro Montag el protagonista pertenece a una extraña brigada de bomberos cuya misión paradó Somehow I have gotten through life as an English major book geek and a science fiction nerd without ever having read this book I vaguely remember picking it up in high school and not getting very far with it It was an interesting premise but far too depressing for my tastes at the timeFast forward 15 years later I just bought a copy the other day to register at BookCrossing for their Banned Books Month release challenge The ALA celebrates Banned Books Week in September so one BXer challenged us to wild release books that had at one point or another been banned in this country during the entire month Fahrenheit 451 fits the bill an irony that is not lost on anyone I trust Everyone knows Fahrenheit 451 is about the evils of censorship and banning books right The title refers to the temperature at which paper burnsI didn t intend to start reading it I really didn t Somehow it seduced me into it I glanced at the first page and before I knew it it was 100 in the morning and I was halfway through with the thing It s really good No wonder it s a modern classic Montag s inner emotional and moral journey from a character who burns books gleefully and with a smile on his face to someone who is willing to risk his career his marriage his house and eventually his life for the sake of books is extremely compelling That this man product of a culture that devalues reading and values easy thoughtless entertainments designed to deaden the mind and prevent serious thought could come to find literature so essential that he would kill for it Something about that really spoke to meIt raises the uestion why What is it about books about poetry about literature that is so essential to us There is no doubt in my mind that it is essential if not for all individuals although I find it hard to imagine life without books I know there are some people who don t read for pleasure bizarre as that seems to me then for society Why should that be Books don t contain any hard and fast answers to all of life s uestions They might contain great philosophical Truths but only subjectively so there will always be someone who will argue and disagree with whatever someone else says In fact as Captain Beatty the evil fire chief points out no two books agree with each other What one says another contradicts So what then is their allure What is it that made Mildred s silly friend start to weep when Montag read the poem Dover Beach aloud to her Where does the power of literature come fromI think the reason that books are so important to our lives and to the health of our society of any society is not because they give us answers but because they make us ask the uestions Books good books the books that stay with you for years after you read them the books that change your view of the world or your way of thinking aren t easy They aren t facile They aren t about surface they re about depth They are uite literally thought provoking They reuire complexity of thought They reuire effort on the part of the reader You get out of a book what you put into the reading of it and therefore books satisfy in a way that other types of entertainment do notAnd they aren t mass produced They are individual uniue gloriously singular They are each an island much needed refuges from an increasingly homogeneous cultureI m glad I read Fahrenheit 451 even if the ending was rather bleak It challenged me and made me think stimulated me intellectually We could all do with a bit of intellectual stimulation now and then it makes life much fulfilling

Obliga a pensar y en el país de Montag esta prohibido pensar Porue leer impide ser ingenuamente feliz y en el país de Montag hay ue ser feliz a la fuerza We are living in a time when flowers are trying to live on flowers instead of growing on good rain black loam 111What outstanding prose prophetic which is by far the most rare and inspiring of attributes a work of literature can ever possess Ray I Don t Talk Things Sir I Talk The Meaning Of Things Bradbury is here at his absolute best I cannot decide whether this or Martian Chronicles is my favorite they are definitely my favorite of his the best possible possibly in ANY sci fi adventureThis is The Giver for adults Here another example of overpraised books that shockingly do live up to the hype It s a resplendent petition for life beauty literature an AMEN for The Book s very core of existence THE BOOK that actually worships other BOOKS like The Bible does with God Personal events and not the battlefields of Tolkien sized scope I mean small occurrences such as breakdowns unpleasant jobs below par relationships tightens the razor sharp string of terror a severe lack of details is a tenacious and masterful way to portray this post apocalyptic nightmare in the most disconcerting way If you re a lover of books this seems like some Dantean form of poetic retribution 451 is an example of when planets aligned just right and gave the writer a light for him to share This a writer s capacity for collecting metaphors is absolutely enthralling I am wholly amazedA PLUS read the edition with the 3 introductions by the inspiring Bradbury there are 451 printings or so of this novel after all save a couple bucks in a creative writing class His writing tips are genuinely far out

Jicamente no es la de sofocar incendios sino la de provocarlos para uemar libros Porue en el país de Montag está terminantemente prohibido leer Porue leer As I write this review the year is 2012 We do not live in a perfect world in fact in many ways we don t even live in a good world But one thing I believe with all my heart is that we live in a world which on the whole is better than it was fifty years ago Now I know I m writing with limited perspective and that progression and development hasn t been the same all over the globe and even the definition of those words can change depending on what part of the world you live in But here s what I do know the average world life expectancy is higher the infant mortality rate is lower access to education is greater and the amount of countries that hold regular fair elections has increasedOn average people today are smarter than they were fifty years ago And I know this is where older generations throw up their hands in indignation and start yelling about how exams were much harder in their day and they really had to work for it I am not disputing this I have no idea if it s true or not But what is true is that people today than ever before are going on to further education after high school the barriers that once stopped the working class from being as smart as society s privileged members are slowly starting to break down bit by bit Literacy rates have been on the rise the whole world overIt s true We have entered the age of computers and electronics social networking and personal media players and the world has not ended the robots haven t taken over and people haven t become so stupid that they feel the need to rage a war against books And this is the main reason why I think Bradbury s dystopian tale is out of date and ineffective The author was writing at a time when technology was really starting to get funky the digital age was still decades away but people were doing all kinds of crazy things like listening to music with little cones plugged into their ears Bizarre Readers often choose to view Bradbury s story as one about censorship instead of technology because that allows a modern reader to connect with the world portrayed But taken as it was intended I just don t share the author s sentiments Not all technology is good but I m of the opinion that the good outweighs the bad medical advancements entertainment access to information via the internet I m the very opposite of a technophobe because in my opinion forward is the way to go And I m sure it s because of the age I was born into but I cannot relate to the apprehension that Bradbury feels when he tells of this true story note this is not in the book In writing the short novel Fahrenheit 451 I thought I was describing a world that might evolve in four or five decades But only a few weeks ago in Beverly Hills one night a husband and wife passed me walking their dog I stood staring after them absolutely stunned The woman held in one hand a small cigarette package sized radio its antenna uivering From this sprang tiny copper wires which ended in a dainty cone plugged into her right ear There she was oblivious to man and dog listening to far winds and whispers and soap opera cries sleep walking helped up and down curbs by a husband who might just as well not have been there This was not fictionI know many still think today that we are becoming a completely unsociable species because of mobilecell phones social networking sites etc but I have made friends from all over the world thanks to technology I have talked to people that fifty years ago I would never have known I have learned about different cultures and ways of life because I have access to most areas of the world through the web So no I m not scared of this so called technological threat that is somehow going to turn our brains to mush and create a society where we cannot concentrate long enough to read a book And here is where I finally get on to details of this novelWhat I am supposed to believe in here is that because of technology humanity has become so stupid that they couldn t concentrate on books So books were simplified at first for easier understanding then banned then burnt Why I am okay with the realistic aspect of people have short attention spans because of technology so they don t want to read books but why burn books I don t see why this would need to happen and why it would become a criminal offense to have books in your home This is where I understand why so many people prefer to apply this novel s message to censorship because it works so much better that way The argument for the technological side of it is weak even for the time in uestionThe best thing about this whole book is the discussion about the phoenix and the comparisons made between the legendary bird and humanity in the same way that the bird dies in flames only to be reborn again from the ashes humanity constantly repeats mistakes made throughout history and never seems to learn from them Secondly to give credit where it s due the writing is suitably creepy for a dystopian society and I understand why people who do actually share Bradbury s concerns would be caught up in the novel s atmosphere But overall this wasn t a great dystopian work for me I didn t agree with the point it was trying to sell me and I don t think it made a very successful case for it Further I had some problems with the pacing The book is split into three parts and the first two are much slower and uneventful than the last one which seems to explode with a fast seuence of events in a short amount of time and pages Disappointing

    Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended which would suggest that it is a failed attemptThere are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate since contemporary sources suggest pa
