“Fahrenheit 451” was written by Ray Bradbury. The book follows a fireman named Guy Montag through a few weeks of his life. He burns books for a living. Yeah, burning books. It’s not cool. Anyway, the title is inspired by the supposed temperature that it takes to burn a book - 451 degrees Fahrenheit. The book continues to follow him as he realizes what he is doing and realizes how senseless it is.
The book has been adapted into a radio show and a movie. The film adaptation came out in 1966, and the radio show followed it in 1982. Bradbury himself helped create a computer game based off of the book in 1984, and a stage play was created in 1979.
