Overview

Fahrenheit 451 (en español) by Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451. La temperatura a la que el papel se enciende y arde.

Como 1984 de George Orwell, como Un mundo feliz de Aldous Huxley, Fahrenheit 451 describe una civilización occidental esclavizada por los media, los tranquilizantes y el conformismo.

La visión de Bradbury es asombrosamente profética: las pantallas de TV ocupan paredes y exhiben folletines interactivos, unos auriculares transmiten a todas horas una insípida corriente de música y noticias, en las avenidas los coches corren a 150 kilómetros por hora persiguiendo a peatones; y el cuerpo de bomberos auxiliados por el Sabueso Mecánico, rastrea y elimina a los disidentes que conservan y leen libros.

La obra maestra de Ray Bradbury retrata una sociedad futurista en la que los bomberos queman viviendas y bibliotecas para destruir libros y evitar que la gente tenga un pensamiento independiente.

Fahrenheit 451 ofrece la historia de un sombrío y horroroso futuro. Montag, el protagonista, pertenece a una extraña brigada de bomberos cuya misión, paradójicamente, no es la de sofocar incendios sino la de provocarlos para quemar libros. Porque en el país de Montag está terminantemente prohibido leer. Porque leer obliga a pensar, y en el país de Montag está prohibido pensar. Porque leer impide ser ingenuamente feliz, y en el país de Montag hay que ser feliz a la fuerza, y la ignorancia es lo mejor para ser feliz...

About the Author

Ray Bradbury nació el 22 de agosto de 1920 en Waukegan, Illinois.  Durante la Gran Depresión se trasladó con su familia a Los Ángeles, donde se graduó en 1938 del Los Angeles High School.  Su educación académica acabó ahí, pero continuó formándose por cuenta propia hasta que en 1943 se convirtrió en escritor profesional.  Sus obras más conocidas son Crónicas marcianas, El hombre ilustrado y Fahrenheit 451.  Brabdury no sólo es novelista, también ha escrito innumerables guiones de televisión, ensayos y poemas.  Su preocupación como escritor no sólo se centra en cuestionar el modo de vida actual, también se adentra en el reino de lo fantástico y maravilloso, con un estilo poético y, a veces, provocativo.  En su niñez, Bradbury fue muy propenso a las pesadillas y horribles fantasías que acabó por plasmar en sus relatos muchos años después.

I reread this book every few years and each time I do it becomes more relevant. It is hard to believe it was written over 60 years ago

Do not buy this book unless you want the Italian version. I know everyone keeps saying it's Spanish but technically it's actually Italian. I took Spanish in school and was curious to see it so I got the free sample but the book was not Spanish. It's actually in Italian. So, again in closing do not buy this book unless toy want the Italian version of Fahrenheit 451.

It would be nice if there was a language setting for the Nook app. That way, only books in the chosen language would be displayed.

IMPORTANT! I'm still looking for a way to inform the website admin or whomever it may concern, but the sample provided when I looked into the paperback was NOT IN SPANISH, it was in ITALIAN. Language learners, be very careful to get what you intend to buy!

This is an Italian translation (NOT Spanish), and certainly not the English edition. I reccommend reading the summary and sample before purchasing.

Guy Montag is a 30 year old man who lives in a futuristic American society and works a fireman. Not your ordinary fireman, but one whose job it is to burn books. In Montag's world, all fireman initiate fires instead than putting them out. The normal people in this society rarely get out of the house, do not attend many outside activities and do not have meaningful conversations. In addition, the only way they know how to read is from magazines, comic strips, brochures, etc. However, they do attend some sporting events every once in awhile. Montag come across a sweet 17 year old girl named Clarisse McClellan, who lives nearby and who helps Montag view life and to delete all the dull parts in his life. Over the next few weeks Montag starts noticing some weird things happening. First of all, his wife Mildred attempts suicide by swallowing too many sleeping pills and having to go to the emergency room. Later she denies even taking the pills. Then after Mildred had been out of the hospital he hears that Clarisse had been hit by a car and no one even shows any remorse over the loss of the young girl. On the job that evening, Montag sets another house on fire because the owner has books inside, but the lady refuses to leave her house so she burns along with the house. Montag is horrified by this and is full of remorse. The next day Montag pretends he's sick decides not to show up for his job so his boss Captain Beatty decides to come over for a little visit. No one knows that Montag has kept one of the books from the house that burned the night before and has it hidden under his pillow on his bed.. As Beatty walks in, he surmises that books had been stashed and both of them know that it is illegal under the rules of the community for a fireman to have a book of any sort for more than 24 hours. The book he has hidden is the Holy Bible and he decides that if he has to destroy the book, then he can at least commit it to memory so that the book will live on inside him. When Montag knows the authorities are on to him he seeks out an old friend, Professor Faber. There are two reasons why Montag decides this. First of all, no one would expect to find him at his house. Secondly, Montag had been sneaking a book the whole time, so now he would like his old friend Professor Faber to see what a book looks like after not seeing one for decades. Once Captain Beatty, the fire chief, realizes that Montag has traded sides, he forces Montag to burn his own home. To save himself, Montag kills the fire chief and escapes the community. A manhunt ensues on live television, but when Montag eludes the authorities, an innocent man is killed in his place to appease the audience.

Fahrenheit 451 is an exciting story of suspense, morality, and the search for truth. Set in the future from the 1950's when it was written, maybe not the far future for us, books are banned all throughout the country, and to ensure that books cannot be read, firemen have been assigned to burn and destroy, instead of extinguish and save. It's an ironic twist written by Ray Bradbury, a science fiction novelist whose works have been adapted into many movies and TV shows. Bradbury doesn't fail in this book, as he illustrates a dystopia, hidden by a utopia. People are kept happy through ignorance of the troubles of the outside world, even with the booms of war planes zooming overhead. The protagonist of the story is Guy Montag, a fireman who loves his job of burning books. Through the book, Bradbury does a great job of developing him from this trigger happy kerosene launcher to the man that fights for books, and along the way gives him many challenges to keep the story interesting. Such as facing the guilt and regret of all he's done over the years as the cold hard fireman he was so proud to call himself. This book can help anyone relate to real life as a person who is always facing the challenges of moral obligation, which at times can be as dangerous, or as hard as crossing a dessert. At times the book can be questionable with choices made, such as letting anger get the best of Montag, leading him to be labeled a public enemy, but at other times it's a good story explaining many important things, such as the importance of free thought in our society. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys books that help them relate to the world around them. It's an engaging and inspiring storyline, and great characters and suspenseful dramatic surprises to pull it all together. I enjoyed reading it most of the time, yet at some points the flow of story switched wildly and was hard to follow. Besides those parts, the book Fahrenheit 451 is fun, imaginative, and revealing of the truths of life. If you choose to buy this book and read in your spare time, you might find yourself immersed in a grand adventure that you won't soon forget. You may not enjoy it if your of a younger age, with some of the language within the book, and some of the fearful thrill scenes, but otherwise, enjoy.

Bradbury's fiction is more real than a surface read allows. Full of imagery, 'what if's', and spectacular thought provoking circumstances, Bradbury's Farenheit 451 is sure to leave you breathless and thinking! A must read for future English teachers in the 21st century, this book will show the power of the written word!
