Book Report: 'The Fountainhead'


The FountainheadThe Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While long-winded and overbearing in the way it shoves its social theories down your throat, I appreciated the storytelling and strength of characters.

Rand goes all-in on her dogged ideals of individualism and proud antisocialism. While the plot twists are ludicrous to the level of YA fiction, her passion and reverence for their ideals rings home.

Rand doesn't have much of an ear for the way human beings communicate with one another, her novel works as a spirited piece of evangelism for hardcore conservative beliefs and ideals.

Unlike "Atlas Shrugged," "The Fountainhead" shows that Rand has the skills and vision it takes to tell a compelling story. I enjoyed the experience.
