A frightening vision of the future, about how television destroys interest in reading literature. Fireman Guy Montag had been a fireman for ten years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think.
