Description

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list).

Hugo Award Winner Best Novel 1954

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

This novel is here offered in its fiftieth anniversary special edition and includes an afterword and coda by author Ray Bradbury.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by Christopher Hurt. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Here’s a great science-fiction classic….Christopher Hurt reads this provocative story with the natural and compelling grace that it deserves.” —Land Line (five-star review)

• EXPERIENCE. About 5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

RATING: 9+ For mild violence, language, and mature themes.

“Fahrenheit 451—The temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns…”

When described as a science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury would point out that he doesn’t write science fiction. “Science fiction is a depiction of the real, ” he would say, “I've only done one science fiction book and that's Fahrenheit 451, based on reality.” When Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 it was with the notion that our reality is only one small step away from the fictional one he created.
