Description The 50th Anniversary Edition
Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires...
The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning... along with the houses in which they were hidden.
Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He has been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages being consumed by flames... never questioned anything until her met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.
Then he met a professor who told him of a future which people could think... and Guy Montage suddenly realized what he had to do!
"Frightening in its implications... Mr. Bradbury's account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating!" The New York Times
