451-degrees Fahrenheit is the burning point of paper, though the novel never mentions this, it sure does coincide with the constant burning of books.  Fahrenheit 451 is a classic and adventurous novel written by Ray Bradbury,  the graphic novel authorized adaptation by Tim Hamilton.  Fahrenheit 451 is about a firefighter named Guy Montag who lives in 2053 in a dystopian city; only in this story, the firemen burn books instead of putting three out fires.  In the beginning, Guy is confronted by a teenager named Clarisse who tries to talk to him about the books and how they hold important knowledge, but when she is found dead after being ran over he starts to consider the things Clarisse said and steals a book to take home.  When he brings it home, his wife is unhappy and doesn’t understand what is so important about the books.  With tensions rising, he and his wife grow further and further apart.  When he gets in touch with an elderly man who shares the same appreciation of the books they make a plan to bring down the corrupt government.


I think that Fahrenheit 451 was a great book; However, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who is under 10 years old because of some of the subject matter, I love the book and think that Ray Bradbury did a fantastic job when writing this,  I liked the graphic novel because it was portrayed very accurately and was just as exciting as the original, This was a very hard book to put down, everytime I would read it I would feel like I wantand if you love action books then this would be a good book for you.
