    Such an enlightening read. Ray Bradbury, a true bookworm.

    There’s so much depth to this story, of his analysis of society, that I’m finding it difficult to put my thoughts into words.

    This is the type of book that one can read and every paragraph would bring about beautiful discussions.

    It’s passionate. It’s written with so much love and wisdom, and emotion. It speaks about a crime that has happened and he was fearing for the American society at the time and its reduction in interest in literatu

    Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning. This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways, and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended, which would suggest that it is a failed attempt.

    There are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate, since contemporary sources suggest paper combusts at 450 degrees Celsius, which in Farenhe

    Extraordinary novel which still resonates!! I remembered enjoying Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 several years ago. This time, it felt even more powerful. There are some great dystopian novels out there--1984, Handmaid's Tale, Brave New World, Oryx & Crake. Many others come to mind. What's different about Fahrenheit 451 is the sense that it is okay to hope for better days. Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale, for instance, ends well after Offred's story has ended and Gilead is an academic subje ...more

    فهرنهايت 451 .. الرواية الكابوس

    عالم اليوم :



    انظر .. انظر حولك .. هل ما نعيشه حقيقي ؟!! عالم مبني على الخيال، تعبيرات مصطنعة على شكل حبوب، حرب نفسية على شكل إعلانات، كيمياويات لتبديل و تبديد العقل على شكل طعام، ندوات لغسيل المخ على شكل وسائل الإعلام، فقاعات منعزلة بإحكام في شكل وسائل التواصل الإجتماعي، بطولة زائفة في شكل أبطال زائفين، دين جديد في شكل عبادة المال، حرب استنزاف واسعة في شكل تبعية كل ما هو جديد هل ما نعيشه حقيقي ؟ .. لقد أغلقنا الواقع و خلعنا رداء الإنسانية و ألقينا ما تبقى منّا في م

    "No hace falta quemar libros para que una cultura desaparezca. Mucho peor es no leerlos" - Ray Bradbury

    Cuesta mucho encontrar en el vasto mundo de la literatura un libro que defienda precisamente al libro como patrimonio cultural de la Humanidad. Más allá de la distopía que encierra, la maestría de Bradbury nos posiciona ante los peligros que a veces significa para el poder el hecho de que la gente "piense" y quiera valerse por sí misma. Uno de mis libro preferidos de toda la vida...

    صرخ (مونتاج) في وجهها: ألا تفهمين بحق الله؟ أقول لكِ أنها النسخة الأخيرة من (الكتاب المقدس)، النسخة الوحيدة الباقية، هل أعطيها لهم ليحرقوها؟

    فهتفتْ بغضب: وما في هذا؟ أترى ماذا تفعل؟ أنت تدمرنا! مَن أهمّ لديك؟ أنا أم ذلك الكتاب المقدس؟


    في زمنٍ يدور فيه هذا الحديث بيني وبين زوجتي عن (حرق القرآن الكريم)! ،وتكون حياة المرء فيه أهم من حفاظه على كتابه المقدس، عن هويته، فيمكنك حينها أن تفهم أى مستقبلٍ ملعون يتحدث عنه برادبوري في روايته!.

    يفرك (مونتاج) عينيه. يسعل متوترًا. يدلف البيت الصامت وهو يجوس ببصره

    It’s easy to see why ‘Farenheit 451’ is a cult classic, beloved by the majority of bookworms. Oh, it validates us, doesn’t it? Here is a future world where books are banned, and look at this; it has gone to the dogs. The saddest of all post-apocalyptic worlds, the bleakest dystopia, what a nightmare – NO BOOKS!

    The good are those who read, the bad are those who watch the TV. Yes, this is what we like to read to make us feel all warm inside. And because of that we are seemingly willing to forgive

    Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that transcends it's dystopian theme and delivers its cautionary message in a timeless fashion, what made this story compelling in 1953 remains provocative.

    It is a strident call to arms, a warning siren of darkness always on the perimeter.

    Critics have tried to make more of this, and certainly it is an archetypal work, but I think its simplicity is its great strength - it is fundamentally about book burning, literally and metaphorically. A powerful allegory t
