Publisher's Summary

“It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see. It is base and evil.” Deep issues of conscience are explored in Ayn Rand’s dystopian tale of a man who dares to fight against a system that invades his very mind and identity.

    "Triumphant! A beautiful molding of the mind."

    I'm writing this a week later and have already started another book. Though I must say this short book is still ringing in my head. We all know that moment in a good movie, the explosion the bridge brings in a powerful song and the whimsical climax of a well written book.. This book gave me that. Is it for everyone, probably not. If you struggle getting out of your bubble and are so gripped by your own understanding and way of thought.. Find another book. If you can appreciate where this character is in time, where he is coming from and where he ends up.. If you can understand that without the teachings of a god, this is the most precious gift. Understanding ones self. It's beautiful; the explanation of love, friendship, hate, ego and reason you breathe. I can go on and on, but why should I? It's all in this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    "Free will"

    BJ Harrison was amazing... I think Ayn would have like it
    It was exactly what Ayn Rand has always taught.

    "Test your tolerance for Ayn Rand"

    Anthem is a good starting point for Ayn Rand's novels.
    Dip your does into Objectivism with Anthem to see if you agree with her preachings.
    It is short enough to tolerate if it does not sit well with you but will leave you wanting more if it does, especially with Anthem's strong ending.

    "Too short but powerful!"

    It had everything I needed in a small bite sized package with a great moral and lesson to the story.

    "Truly riveting!"

    Ayn Rands philosophy is one that speaks to the very heart of the human spirit. This book is another amazing novel of hers and is on par with Atlas Shrugged and The Fountain head.

    "There really are wolves in sheep's clothing!"

    Excellent read! Wonderful reminder that evil and deception can only be prevented from a truly educated society. Just because a philosophy has been touted over and over again, does not mean it is true or good.

    "A Little Dose of Atlas Shrugged"

    Listening to this novella was strangely empowering even with the dystopian feel it carries. l had to get to the end to make up my mind. lt dawned on me that it was a little dose of Atlas Shrugged.

    lt got me revisiting my struggles thus far. The ending is magic. You'll see.
