Fahrenheit 451 (2008)

Av: Ray Bradbury

The hauntingly prophetic classic novel set in a not-too-distant future where books are burned by a special task force of firemen. Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books. The classic novel of a post-literate future, `Fahrenheit 451' stands alongside Orwell's `1984' and Huxley's `Brave New World' as a prophetic account of Western civilization's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity. Bradbury's powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which over fifty years from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.

Jeg tror jeg likte den, men må tenke litt på den. Det var en viss mangel på kvinnelige karakterer, og jeg merket at i dette universet kunne det virke som om kun menn forstod og kunne sette pris på litteratur. Nå var jo dette en stund siden, så det er viktig å huske at det nok var litt sånn på den tiden. Men irritert blir jeg likavæl.

Når det er sagt var det en veldig interessant historie, og jeg likte den mørke fremtiden han malte. Føler likevel at jeg sitter igjen med mange ubesvarte spørsmål, og savner å få vite enda mer om hvordan et slikt samfunn påvirker personer, og hva som "makes it tick". Det er kanskje en god ting? Min interesse ble i hvert fall vekket, om ikke tilfredsstilt.
