  • "In the classic novel of censorship and defiance, a totalitarian regime in the future has ordered all books to be destroyed, but one of the book burners suddenly realizes their merit."
  • "Social satire set in the future, which tells of a time when owning or reading books is a crime. The fireman hero becomes a fugitive when he succumbs to temptation."
  • ""The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do."--Editor."@en

  • "Mit Fahrenheit 451 hält Ray Bradbury der Gegenwart ein Zerrbild vor. Er zeigt die Gefahren die dem Menschen aus dem heutigen Stand von Zivilisation und Technisierung drohen. In der Utopie Bradburys wird der Mensch vollends überwältigt. In der Wohnung ist die betäubende Geräuschkulisse des Rundfunks allgegenwärtig; Fernsehwände umgeben die Bewohner mit ablenkender Gesellschaft und absorbierendem Geplauder. Werbesprüche hämmern die letzten Ansätze zu eigenen Gedanken aus dem Gehirn. Die Gedankenlosigkeit garantiert den Menschen ihr fades Glück. Darum dürfen sie nicht zur Besinnung kommen, nicht die Ruhe finden, die ihnen Gelegenheit zum Denken gibt. Vor allem aber müssen sie vor Büchern bewahrt bleiben, die vom Denken zeugen."

  • "In Bradbury's classic, frightening vision of the future, firemen don't put out fires but start them--to burn books. It's a time when trivial information is valued and true knowledge perceived as dangerous and subversive. Guy Montag is a fireman with a wife who's goading him to work harder so they could afford another television set. When Montag befriends their neighbor Clarisse, whose love for books and knowledge is contrasted to the Montags' mindless existence, Clarisse suddenly disappears. As a result, Guy begins to hide her books. When his wife turns him in, Guy is ordered to hand them over. Refusing, he runs away, joining an outlawed group of intellectuals who store the contents of the books in their heads, waiting for the time the society will want to think again."@en
  • "In a society in which books are outlawed, Montag, a regimented fireman in charge of burning the forbidden volumes, meets a revolutionary school teacher who dares to read. Suddenly he finds himself a hunted fugitive, forced to choose not only between two women, but between personal safety and intellectual freedom."@en
