It was simple. Everyone knew it. Books were for burning – together with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag knew it. He had been a fireman for ten years and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames…never questioned anything until he met a seventeen year old girl who told him of a past where people were not afraid. Then he met a professor who told him of a future where people could think – and Guy Montag suddenly realised what he had to do. And he became a fugitive in a flaming hell to do it!
