Book Review: Anthem by: Ayn Rand

Anthem, Expanded 50th Anniversary EditionPublisher: Plume
Publish Date: First published in 1938
Origins: Gutenberg Library
Format: ebook

Ayn Rand's classic tale of a future dark age of the great “We”—a world that deprives individuals of name, independence, and values—anticipates her later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. 

One of my friends recently asked me to read one of his favorite books, he said though, if I am going to read it I have to read Anthem first. So I agreed and picked up this pretty short book. I adored it. The writing style of this author is so beautiful, she writes in a way that I feel is lost to the modern novel. 

I loved the content of the book. I think that this book feels like a true dystopian. If you are a fan of dystopian fiction and have not read this book, you are missing out. It is written very stylized and very methodical, as the world in the book is. I enjoyed that most of all. I was awwed by this author and already started 'The Fountainhead".

  1. I haven't read Anthem yet, but I am planning to. The Fountainhead is an awesome book. I love Howard Roark.
