    The Fountainhead is one of the worst books I have ever read in my entire life. If Ayn Rand books were food, I wouldn't feed them to a starving dog. I'd say, dog, just lick your own balls. You'll be happier. Speaking of dog balls, man I'd rather sniff one than have to read this book again. What a piece of crap.

    The meandering prose. The inability to grasp basic tenets of what it is to be human. And believe me, I've done my homework since reading the Fountainhead. Ayn Rand was a horrible human being. She went on the Donahue show in the 80's and proceeded to tell an audience they had no right to criticize her because this was her show. Yeah, man, I don't even know where to begin. She didn't endorse racism but said it should be legal in the workplace. She believed that corporations should have the right to do whatever they want to do. Well, that works out marvelously, doesn't it, Ayn! We did that and now we're on the verge of ecocollapse.

    God, if I could only raise Ayn Rand from the dead so I could seriously smack her. And then I'd make her live in a slum in India. That would show her how poor people deserve to be poor. If there is any justice, this woman got reincarnated as a sweatshop employee years ago.

    The Fountainhead's plot is simplistic, trite, incredibly naive, and ultimately the work of someone who is so jaded with herself she couldn't see that her ideas don't work on any viable level. The exact same, if not far more so, goes for Atlas Shrugged. Read these books to hate them, if for anything.

    I hate how cold the books are. Ouch. I don't think Ayn Rand ever hugged anybody. Its the best screening test I've ever come across. If you love Ayn Rand, its unlikely we'll ever be friends. I know, saves us so much trouble.


  3. Christopher Christopher says:

    In my book, Ayn Rand still stands as one of the most powerful fictional writers capable of imbuing her work with philosophical ideals, and The Fountainhead is no let down. Yes, her characters can be a little one-sided, with unbending ideals they seem capable of upholding in the midst of the greatest strife. However, just being able to imagine and describe these kinds of intellectual pariahs and support their personas with such thorough background is a significant accomplishment.

    The only point at which this became unwieldy to me was during one of the final scenes, when court dialog is used as a thin disguise for Rand to rail on about her ideals through her protagonist and to tie some of the final plot knots. Normally, this would have been fine to me, except this diatribe goes on for quite a few pages. I considered lowering my rating to 4 stars in light of this grueling scene, but in the end, even this faux pas is excellently written and well-supported.

    Overall, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the philosophy of self, individualism, and motivation. The only book in Rand's arsenal that tops this is Atlas Shrugged.

    This is an amazing, amazing book of thought. Through the novel Rand illustrates her philosophy of Objectivism. As an artist--and one who studied with architects--finding myself feeling like the black sheep in the lot most of the time, I was astonished. The Fountainhead articulated a lot of social and individual behavior that I have understood and also been frustrated by. The idea of the creative soul being genuine and self-directed as spiritual self-respect, driving against a crowd, against a society where self-worth is gained from outside praise, is an idea everyone should ponder.

    REad this book! It will change your life! The way you look at others--why you find yourself impatient with insincerity and false social behavior, and the way you look at yourself. Integrity!

    Picking up a battered old copy of Ayn Rand‘s The Fountainhead when I was twenty-nine was a life-changing experience that snapped me out of my routine-induced stagnation and reignited my thinking processes. Ayn Rand and I differ on many positions (big time!) but this tale of architect Howard Roark, the living embodiment of integrity, is a thrilling portrayal of what a human being is capable of becoming and creating. After reading this book, I put off reading Rand’s follow-up magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, because I wanted to delay the pleasure I knew I would receive from reading it. A couple of years later, I did read it; I laughed, I cried, I cheered. It was, in a word, awesome. Say what you want about Rand’s philosophy but give the lady her due—boy, could she write!

    What I like about Rand's philosophy is her celebration of an individual's integrity, self-reliance and courage to follow his or her heart. What don't I like about Rand's philosophy? Just about everything else!


  6. Sunanda Sunanda says:

    Only read The Fountainhead and it was horrible. Two stars is generous. I couldnt even make it through Atlas Shrugged. I love her book We the Living which I believe was her first novel and the nearest thing to an autobiography from her and I cannot believe the same author put out these two books. I don't really understand the hype over either one they are overdone and too long with no real point. The characters are not real to me just idols of the ideas in her own head. Both books are about a 'philosophy' and she should have stuck just to writing books on her philosophies cause these novels fell horribly flat.

    second (or third?) time around it's even more tedious. constant moralizing wears on me. i love the relentless faith in the individual, but the characters are so flat in order to hammer her political agenda, that the plot ceases to be entertaining and leaves me wishing i'd just read a paragraph summary of objectivism and spent the other 1800 hours reading something less redundant and more entertaining


  8. Rod Rod says:

    Ayn (pronounced eye+n) Rand presents a lot of well thought out ideas regarding the weaknesses of society. Her ideology, although well-meaning, is thoroughly flawed. Her world exists in a vacuum where nothing happens that is outside of the control of man, and where a man creates his own soul. Despite that, I really like this book.


  9. Thomas.harrop Thomas.harrop says:

    I was very taken with Ayn Rand when I originally read her books. I still find her logic compelling, however, she never really understood that compassion can be part of enlightened self interest. Her characters are intentionally very hard edged and idealistic, I get that. The problem is, like all conservatives, she has no room in her view of life for people who are unable to care for themselves. I recently discussed this with a friend who believed that people should just all be responsible for themselves. If someone can care for them self, let them die. That is the message of Rand. The problem is, leaving these marginal people to die creates crime, a drain on our hospitals money (as they are currently paid) and many other social ills.

    Why is it that supposed Christians think that Rand is so great? it is because most modern Christians have entirely forgotten about Christ and what he taught. I heard one man pushing a version of Christianity where Jesus was some sort of ass kicking biker who didn't care about the poor and weak and meek. He said that Jesus was really all about giving people hell and all this loving kindness crap was a giant load. He taught that Christians should be all about hate and contempt and violence.

    Most of this kind of attitude comes from Rand and her ilk. Love your fellow man, but if he needs help, too bad. Praise the Lord.


  10. Dallin Bruun Dallin Bruun says:

    Finally. What, 2000 pages? 2 full years? These books deserve 4 stars because they shift your thinking. I look at factories now and I don't say Ugly but That is the physical manifestation of man's brainpower.

    They also shed light on the vicious Robin Hood myth: it is immoral to be wealthy, and perfectly moral to be poor and envious of the rich.

    Further, it defines well what it is 'to be.' Ayn Rand defines to be (as a MAN) is to use your brain, to achieve, to aspire, to accomplish greatness. Man as man.

    The story is entertaining. It's a bit romantic in that there are clear heroes and villains and large dramatized themes.

    My biggest disappointment is that she assumes she is right. There is no room for argument. In this way it feels didactic.
