Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451
The Authorized AdaptationUnknown - 2009
Fifty-five years ago Ray Bradbury, one of America's greatest writers, envisioned one of the world's most unforgettable dystopian futures. Thinking is dangerous; trust only the state; turn in your neighbors; and, most important, burn all books. Artist Tim Hamilton, with Bradbury, has turned this modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. The world of Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene has become perfume, has been translated by Hamilton into unforgettable full-color art that uniquely captures Montag's awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature. Fully depicting the brilliance and force of Bradbury's canonic and beloved masterwork,Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451"is an exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature.
