    Ray Bradbury’s tale of a future without books comes chillingly to life in an adaptation by the legendary author himself.

    Considered a work of science fiction when first published, the issues raised in this powerful book—censorship, the effects of technology on society and literature, and the means by which knowledge is gained—continue to be very real concerns today.

    Media has claimed the culture. Books are outlawed. Owning one is a crime only flame can punish, and it is Montag’s job to light the match. But when a chance encounter sparks doubt, Montag embarks on a journey that may consume more than words, more than lives. Burn enough books, and some minds will catch fire.

    The New York Times raved that Bradbury’s account of “this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.”
