    Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires....The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning...along with the houses in which they were hidden. Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 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 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

    "Good book but difficult listen"
    Overall

    Apparently, I am not alone in my critique, in that it is difficult to listen to Mr. Bradbury read his book. His enunciation is at times slurred, his pace halting, his inflection monotone. Had I listened to a portion of the narration prior to purchasing, I would not have purchased. This is not meant to be disrespectful, only an honest evaluation. However, one does grow accustomed to Mr. Bradbury's reading, at least I did.

    A first time reader/listener to this book, it reminds me of a couple of others which I would place in the same genre... that of social conscience: namely, Orwell's "1984" and Huxley's "Brave New World" All three envision society gone wrong in its extreme, a would-be world if we allow things to go unchanged.
