"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)
She describes her perfect man and his ideals.
What I think is the most important thing in the world is
is to learn
And she gave me a lesson, that no one dared to teach me.
For me this book is the way I want to go, and there was no path
Until now Until this book.
Have found audiobooks to be a great way to pass time during long car road trips for work, and Audible makes it easy.
Complex, deep, excellent characters.
Roark, far and away. Uncompromising genius.
I don't think I have, but Christopher Hurt did an excellent job. I would certainly listen to other books narrated by him.
The world is not what you think it is.
I had no idea what to expect. This was my first Ayn Rynd book, and while I don't necessarily agree with all of her religious or political points of view, I thought the book was excellent,
The Fountainhead is sweeping and beautiful. Although Rand's philosophy sometimes gets too heavy, the story is beautiful and intriguing. It is my favorite novel.
I love the characters. Rand characterizes so beautifully, and the performance is superb.
Surprisingly, Guy Francon. But he does a great job with them all.
Yes, always keeps you on the edge.
I want to be like Howard Roark.
I would love to, but its 32 hours long! :)
Loved the book, cant believe I waited 31 years to read it. Worth every minute.
