It seemed so good 'way back then...

by tucsonreader on Oct 13, 2014

A discussion with friends led us to buy and re-read four of Ayn Rand's books. Funny, when we were young and idealistic, her philosophy sounded so good. Now that we're older (much older, alas) and have some real experiences, it's revealed to be selfish, self-serving, and ruinous to society. Well-written, great characterizations, but an awful message.


Collectivism denounced early

by Neil on Aug 16, 2012

More timely than ever during the Obama y,ears when a so-called "fairer" society is being touted, the classic novel bolsters the view of a single person's right to his own accomplishment. The architect hero did, indeed, BUILD that only to be put on trial for destroying it after ignornat masses, mass media, and massive governm,ent turned it into a permanent abortion.

One can see why the author's been rediscovered

I really enjoyed this although it was a bit preachy at times, but even then, the sermons fit into the plot. Liberals may hate it, but too bad for them. Minds should be open!


It 's a must read

This is a book that has an excellent command of language. It is the type of book which a reader will read over and over--including me. The characters are as up to date today as when the book was written.


Great book

by janis6west on May 14, 2009

This book was good. I ordered it after I watched the movie about Ayn Rand's life. I also watched the movie The Fountainhead. The book was different than most but good reading.
