Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper ignites. Based on Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel of the same title, Fahrenheit 451 introduces Guy Montag, a fireman, living in his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction. In his world, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Never questioning the destruction and ruin his actions produce, he returns each day to his bland life, until he meets an eccentric young neighbor 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. When sudden and disturbing developments occur, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known.
