"Ayn Rand is a writer of great power. She has a subtle and ingenious mind and the capacity of writing brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly." (New York Times Book Review)
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.
Captivating story that still holds true so many years after it was first published. Excellent.
First of all, the reader was amazing. Secondly, the story is really well done when you consider that it was propaganda for a certain way of thinking. I had heard about Mrs. Rand for years, but I had no idea she was such a good writer. I had only heard the prickly part about her personality and philosophy. 32 hours well spent.
