July 2008

When: Friday, July 25th @ 7pm
Where: Jenn’s House
Book: Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradburyfarenheit.jpg

In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s classic, frightening vision of the future, firemen don’t put out fires–they start them in order to burn books. Bradbury’s vividly painted society holds up the appearance of happiness as the highest goal–a place where trivial information is good, and knowledge and ideas are bad. Fire Captain Beatty explains it this way, “Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs…. Don’t give them slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.”

Guy Montag is a book-burning fireman undergoing a crisis of faith. His wife spends all day with her television “family,” imploring Montag to work harder so that they can afford a fourth TV wall. Their dull, empty life sharply contrasts with that of his next-door neighbor Clarisse, a young girl thrilled by the ideas in books, and more interested in what she can see in the world around her than in the mindless chatter of the tube. When Clarisse disappears mysteriously, Montag is moved to make some changes, and starts hiding books in his home. Eventually, his wife turns him in, and he must answer the call to burn his secret cache of books. After fleeing to avoid arrest, Montag winds up joining an outlaw band of scholars who keep the contents of books in their heads, waiting for the time society will once again need the wisdom of literature.

    I am almost done with the book and I have to say that I’ve enjoyed it immensely. It reminds me of Ayn Rand’s book, Anthem (which could be another good book for us to read).

    Done! It was good. Like Kelli, all the repetition wore me out, but it really seemed to point out how mindless people had become since everything was censored. Reminds me of that book by Orwell…was it 1984?

    Yay! I finished the book this past weekend! I thought it was really great…very interesting the similarities to our culture today even though it was written back in 1953. Looking forward to chatting with everyone else about it. See ya next Friday.
