    Beschreibung von Audible

    Editors Select, October 2014 - I credit Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 as one of the books that sparked my love of reading, and now that I'm an avid listener, I'm excited to be able to experience the story anew with Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption) narrating. Robbins' tone expertly mirrors the story's narrative – shifting effortlessly from somber and contemplative to suspenseful and terrifying. Each character, from the rebellious protagonist Guy Montag, to the enigmatic Clarisse McClellan, to the gruff Captain Beatty is distinct and realistic, making this frightening future seem all the more possible. Whether you enjoyed the book in a high school English class or never quite got around to it, every book lover should experience this poignant version of a dystopian classic.

    Inhaltsangabe

    Ray Bradbury's internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future, narrated here by Academy Award-winning actor Tim Robbins.

    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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Bradbury's iconic novel about the dangers of complacency and the value of curiosity gains a solid new voice with this audio performance. Tim Robbins puts his acting prowess to use here, creating superb dialogue and striding confidently through powerful speeches that celebrate books and warn against the lure of technology. Protagonist Montag burns with all the earnestness of a man eager for change; Faber's aged scholar simmers with cautious hope; Mildred's vacuous presence echoes emptily. Robbins provides the theatrical with the expected confidence, but he also makes good use of quiet in this production. He makes Bradbury's words even more powerful by remembering to pause at opportune moments to let them sink in." (AudioFile)

    Should have burned this book

    I could barely finish the story, borderline painful to listen. Excruciatingly horrible. The reader was mostly good tho. But that's all the good I can say on behalf of this record.
    I usually enjoy dystopia, but this might have been the worst book I've ever read or heard.

    Nachdenkliche Warnung für die Zukunft

    Fahrenheit 451 is not only science-fiction. It's a warning and an encouragement to think. I love this nice piece of literature. The reader is also great.

    Classic in every sense of the word

    Sadly, I never read Fahrenheit 451 as a youth. This book is as profound as promised and as timeless as ever. Tim Robbins also gives an outstanding performance as the narrator. There’s no reason not to listen to this book.

    Disappointing

    I had expected more from Fahrenheit 451. The author has some good ideas, but doesn't really pick up on them and loses himself in the description of an extremely unrealistic dystopia I couldn't identify with. There's no comparison with dystopian novels such as 1984 which have a coherent and convincing plot. This one never really managed to take me along and after a while became boring - despite the interesting ideas at its bottom and the good language.
