Set in a dystopian future, this novel follows Guy Montag, a fireman whose job it is to destroy the most illicit of commodities — books. Literature is nearly extinct, and the endless talk, talk, talk of television rules society. When Montag's life takes a few sharp turns, he begins to... question everything he has known and begins to bring books into his life.
"The simplest way to make sure that we raise literate children is to teach them to read, and to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And that means, at its simplest, finding books that they enjoy, giving them access to those books, and letting them read them." - Neil Gaiman (via The Guardian)
