‘Fahrenheit 451′ adapted as graphic novel

Ray Bradbury's classic 1953 science-fiction book Fahrenheit 451 has been adapted and released as a graphic novel.

It's beautiful, Bradbury, who turns 89 this month and is still writing short stories, told USA Today.

Although he penned an introduction for Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation by illustrator Tim Hamilton, the author assured the newspaper, I didn't interfere.

(Imagine) someone giving it to a 10-year-old kid who then wants to read the original novel. That's what good graphic novels can do. They can make you read more, the famed storyteller said.
