Synopsis

Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed classic novel of censorship and defiance is as resonant today as it was when it was first published fifty years ago.

Summary

Review Excerpts

"Narrator Stephen Hoye is as powerful a storyteller as Bradbury is a writer." ---AudioFile

"Stephen Hoye's narration is perfectly matched to the subject matter: his tone is low and ominous, and his cadence shifts with the prose to ratchet up tension and suspense." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Audio Review

Summary

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden.

Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires. And he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames, never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid. Then Guy met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. And Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.
