The narration was OK. A bit flat, which did not help with the tedious, repetitive, sophomoric prose. If you're a budding narcissist with delusions of grandeur, then I do not doubt that Anthem will be a stimulating credo. If Anthem is an exposition of Ayn Rand's "objectivist" philosophy, where is the philosophy? This is not a literary expression of philosophical principles. This book exhibits nothing approaching modern or classical philosophy.
It is a tedious story about elevating egoism and selfishness as the most important life guiding principles.
At least Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead had some interesting characters and some interesting plot.
