It’s hard to know what else to say about a book like this because The Fountainhead has been praised, analyzed, discussed and criticized from all points of view by so many people.

I will simply say that I think this book is terrific on every level. The characters are unique and interesting and what they stand for ties them into Rand’s personal philosophy of objectivism. And although I think Rand’s beliefs are extreme, I admire Roark’s unwillingness to compromise his designs. Rand’s ability to develop these characters, weave them into a complex and interesting story and keep the reader going through all 700+ pages is a genius accomplishment that stands the test of time.

My favorite part of the book is the friendship that develops between Roark and Wynand because they both let down their guard and become human beings. If you have to read this for school, be patient. It is worth the effort and it will keep you thinking!

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
