More than sixty years after its original publication, Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 stands as a classic of world literature. Today its message is more relevant than ever before. Now an HBO original film starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to destroy the most illegal of all commodities, the printed book, along with the homes in which they are hidden. Montag never questions his orders to destroy and to ruin, returning each day to his bland life and to his wife, Mildred, who is content to spend all day with her television 'family'.

But then Montag meets Clarisse, who shows him a past where people didn't live in fear and a present where the world can be seen through ideas in books and not just the screen of a television, and begins to question everything he has ever known. …

distopia diferente.

4 stars

as distopias costumam ser associadas com um governo totalitário controlando uma massa de pessoas.

o que me interessa mais nesse livro é a construção de uma opressão por parte do próprio povo: o desinteresse por buscar conhecimento, que surge das mídias de massa, torna-os ignorantes.

o final da história é particularmente emocionante.

Review of 'Fahrenheit 451' on 'Goodreads'

1 star

Una novela infantiloide. Y no me refiero a los personajes, que viven en un sistema que los quiere idiotizados, me refiero a la forma en la que está escrita, parece un libro dirigido a niños o a gente de derecha (que ya sabemos que no le da la cabeza para mucho). Si quieres una buena distopía: 1984.
