Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, 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.

Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, 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 instead of the mindless chatter of television.

When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

Fm confused by the typos

I might expect to see OCR typos in a free, public-domain ebook; but it's inexcusable when paying US$10 for one from a well-known publisher like Simon & Schuster. There were many that served to interrupt the narrative, and thus, break the spell of the book. The oft repeated Fm instead of I'm was one of the most glaring.

You're making money; this is your industry. Please, hire a proofreader. It's one of the things that's supposed to separate you from the minor leagues.

With apps at least you can get an update; how about here? If not; I'm sure I'll think twice before buying another book published by Simon & Schuster.

Where is the OG Cover?😐

I read the book on the occasions and my only concern is

Why didn’t they use the original cover??!
🤔🤔🤔

Did they think “oh hey let’s put Michael B Jordan on the cover maybe more people will read is...!!!”

The book was great!!!

Not for people who don’t have very much imagination🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️
The book has a different way in descriptions that may bore an unimaginative reader.🙏🏾🙏🏾👍🏾

Great Book want original cover art though

Don’t use my library to promote a movie. I want the original cover art. I hate HBO and it makes me understand why some people only buy irl books.
