The story is set somewhere in America in a dystopian future (2049), and 451° Fahrenheit is the temperature when paper inflames. Guy Montag is a fireman, employed to burn houses which contain illicit books. But one day, Montag starts to keep some of the books before scorching the rest. This gets him of course in heavy trouble ...

This is indeed THE horror story for any reader, a society where books are forbidden and burned!
Bradbury said 1956 about the novel: "I wrote this book at a time when I was worried about the way things were going in this country. Too many people were afraid of their shadows; there was a threat of book burning. Many of the books were being taken off the shelves at that time."
