This book teaches so much about integrity and heroism. You can build bullet-proof self esteem with the ideas presented in this story.
This is the second time I have read this book, first as a audiobook. The recording and quality are outstanding. The story appeals to me in some of the same and some different ways since I last read it 15+ years ago. It gives me hope for the human race.
I wanted to listen to something that made me think
I felt a rebirth and hope for mankind
I think this book should be read by everyone so that they can see that conformist are not the healthy but it is those that stand out in the storm that are leaders. They are true to the art and conviction that life was breathed into our soles initially.
I was enjoying the book until the hero character suddenly raped a woman. It just came out of the blue. I did not see that one coming. He was a man of principal and wanted to succeed or fail in life based on doing things the way he felt was right. Then this scene happened. I have tried to continue but I can't get over the violent rape scene. Thankfully it was not depicted too graphically. But the image is still in my head and I can't proceed. I hope that audible gives some kind of rating system for books so when I try to lose myself in a book, I am not blindside by things that I do not want in my mind.I will have to return this book and cross my fingers that the next book is going to gut punch me once I get interested in the story.
I never read the print version
When she goes to look for Roarke in the small town he's working in
I can't believe it took me so long to come around to reading this book. It's exceptional and no doubt why its considered a classic.
I will be reading it again.
A book heavy with Character development, the Fountainhead is timeless, not for its inspiring story but for the ideals it portrays.
For the engineer struggling to find meaning in his work.
I first read this book many years ago after I had discovered Atlas Shrugged. It is chilling to realize how Ayn Rand seemed to know what was going to happen to our country. A nation of second handers, with the worst being the president of the United States of America.
