‘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.
