Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television. When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

A librarian's laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving collection of love letters and breakup notes to the books in her life. If you love to read, and presumably you do since you’ve picked up this book (!), you know that some books affect you so profoundly they forever change the way you think about the world. Some books, on the other hand, disappoint you so much you want to throw them against the wall. Either way, it’s clear that a book can be your new soul mate or the bad relationship you need to end. In Dear Fahrenheit 451, librarian Annie Spence has crafted love letters and breakup notes to the iconic and eclectic books she has encountered over the years. From breaking up with The Giving Tree (a dysfunctional relationship book if ever there was one), to her love letter to The Time Traveler’s Wife (a novel less about time travel and more about the life of a marriage, with all of its ups and downs), Spence will make you think of old favorites in a new way. Filled with suggested reading lists, Spence’s take on classic and contemporary books is very much like the best of literature—sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes surprisingly poignant, and filled with universal truths. A celebration of reading, Dear Fahrenheit 451 is for anyone who loves nothing more than curling up with a good book...and another, and another, and another!

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Theorien, Modelle, Begriffe, Note: 1.0, Philipps-Universität Marburg (Institut für Medienwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Francois Truaut, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, die Ansichten Truffauts zur Adaptionsproblematik genauer zu beleuchten und sie auch im Kontext der Nouvelle Vague zu platzieren. Ausgangspunkt soll der von Truffaut verfasste Aufstatz: "Eine gewissse Tendenz im französischen Film" sein. - Fahrenheit 451 ist nach Jules und Jim wohl die bakannteste Literaturadaption Truffauts, welche insbesondere signifikante Unterschiede zur Vorlage (von Ray Bradbury) aufweist und deshalb für eine weitergehende Untersuchung bestens geeignet ist.
