Prometheus Award, Hugo Award, One of the New York Public Library's Books of the Century.

Guy Montag, a fireman of the future, is responsible for starting fires, not stopping them. In his society, books have been banned - all books, save the firemen's own rule books, which contain the ominous order: "Burn everything." Books are only filled with confusing and contradictory ideas, and it is more important to have fun and to be entertained.

He finds pleasure in his job until one autumn evening when a teenage neighbor, Clarisse McClellan, asks him a simple, haunting question: "Are you happy?" When an old woman refuses to leave her books and dies in the flames, he wonders, what in her books inspires such passion? He determines to discover it for himself, though his rebellion, and his confusion, may cost him his life.

A good examination of censorship and our responsibility to understand.

    I LOVE the Fahrenheit 451

    Posted by Patricia M. on 31st May 2016

    I LOVE the Fahrenheit 451 study guide that I just bought. I particularly like that the questions are more than just text questions and include literature analysis questions too, all from a Christian worldview. What I like the most, though, & what sold me on the Progeny Press guides is the copying policy. I will happily pay (only) a few more dollars per guide when I can make copies for all my kids - or the kids in a class I'm teaching - instead of having to shell out $15 per student for a guide. Well done Progeny Press! I can't wait to buy more & start using them next school year. I will be telling everyone (that I haven't already told) about your product.
