Аннотация
"Lisa Jewells characters are so real that I finish every book half-expecting to bump into one of them. Modern, complex, intuitive, she just goes from strength to strength."
Jojo Moyes
"An engaging and atmospheric read, Lisa beautifully conjures up the half-child half-adult lives of young teenagers."
Jane Fallon
"Oh but I loved this book - a magical garden right in the centre of the city, a long, hot summer simmering away, a group of young teens, lurching between boredom and passion and ripe for their lives to start. And at its centre a dark and disturbing mystery that keeps you turning the pages long into the night. Lisa Jewell is the most compassionate storyteller. She writes with such lightness of touch, yet her books pack a powerful punch. A stunning, beautiful, mesmerising book that everyone will be reading this summer."
Tamar Cohen
"I was utterly gripped from the start... basically a great read."
Irish Independent
"Another winner. Beautiful writing, believable characters, a pacy narrative and dark secrets combine to make this a gripping read."
Daily Mail

Повесть знаменитого американского писателя-фантаста «451 градус по Фаренгейту» написана более полувека назад, но своей актуальности не потеряла и по сей день. Ее лейтмотив - озабоченность духовным обликом будущего. Будущее, как его видел Бредбери, довольно мрачно: тоталитарное государство, в котором пресекается любое инакомыслие. Реклама, бесконечные телешоу - вот и все, что нужно человеку для безмятежного счастья. Так решило государство, и оно защищает своих граждан в меру собственного разумения: разговаривать друг с другом - значит думать, думать заставляют книги, поэтому, дабы не нарушать покоя обывателей, их надлежит сжигать. 451 градус по Фаренгейту - это температура горения бумаги. Предлагаем вниманию читателей неадаптированный текст повести, снабженный комментариями и словарем.
