My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Great novel; Bad philosophy. A picture says a thousand words,but Ayn Rand uses words to paint a picture. Everything comes alive as you flip the pages. Flipping the pages provides for a variety of emotions, as characters develop in intriguing instances. The book centers around characters with a purpose larger than life that could only inspire passion and spark energy. BUT the philosophy is debatable to live by. Although I am glad that this side of the philosophical fulcrum has been explain, history has proved over and over that a world like Rand depicts cannot entirely exist. This novel will define individualism for many readers, but to my opinions it crosses the boundaries of selfishness.
