SRP – Fareignheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 – SUMMARY

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a very intriguing book about abuse of rights and control, and the loss of more than just education. This book is set in the near future where fireman burn literature, and houses are fireproof… and most importantly, books are illegal. Anybody who has books is committing a crime, and fireman jobs are to find them and burn them. Treating them almost like illicit drugs, books are slowly vanishing from the future world, with bibles almost gone, and fiction almost a fairy tale. The story is revolved around a fireman whose job is to burn books, and he starts to question his work, and cause a revolution against the government, bringing the freedom of books once again.
