The Book Club book

Fahrenheit 451 is said to be the temperature at which paper catches fire and burns.  The book is a powerful story of one man's struggle with his conscience as he performs his job - burning books.  Guy Montag is a fireman - tasked with finding and destroying books which are forbidden, and killing those who preserve and read books. This classic novel is, with Orwell's '1984' and Huxley's 'Brave New World', a powerful critique of aspects of Western civilization, media and politics.  Ray Bradbury's powerful and poetic writing still has the power to make us think and reflect on our freedoms. 

Geoff says:

"This is a must read novel - a culturally important work that is also a fine thriller."
