As could only occur with Bradbury's full cooperation in this authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art that uniquely captures Montag's awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature.--From publisher description

Even though I'm not really a fan of graphic novels, I felt this was a timely and good version of Fahrenheit 451. In this day of too much, entertainment media, we need to heed its warning and not stop reading--and seeking knowledge. Great book for Summer Reading/Break.

How ironic...."It didn't come from the Government down. There was no dictum, no declaration, no censorship, to start with, no! Technology, mass exploitation, and minority pressure carried the trick, thank God. Today, thanks to them, you can stay happy all the time, you are allowed to read comics, the good old confessions, or trade journals."

I love the movie best. Through my college teacher, Mr. Bradbury sent me an autographed copy which I treasure. But I love the movie, the first time seeing when I was 8, and I love the French director Truffau anyway so it was all heaven to me. My mother was a Ph Beta Kappa and a librarian, so because of her influence it shook me up as a child to see books burned, and by 4th grade I even had memorized my own 3 books just in case:" Dairy of Ann Frank", "Catcher in the Rye", and "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings". All of which I could recite at will, because of this movie. Thank you, Bradbury.

Well done. I the should say that I was not a huge fan of the novel though I'm glad I read it. The graphic novel does condense a lot of it without really losing much. Most importantly, the introduction to this adaptation is written by Ray Bradbury, and is well worth the read. He positsquestion: which book would you save? And that is a question that gave me pause to think. So read it if you enjoyed the novel. Read it if you don't want to read the novel. It's worth your time, for the introduction alone if nothing else.

An interesting adaptation of a classic; however, I still prefer the novel.

If you want to read Fahrenheit 451, read the novel; graphic novel format doesn't do it justice. It still boggles my mind that Bradbury allowed his book to be adapted into comic book format, given that he argues that could be the beginning of a slippery slope into disposing literature.
