Review on the book ‘The Fountainhead’ by Ayn Rand

Yes 5 stars! Why? Because whenever I rethink about this book, I become speechless. The lessons it taught me and the life it showed me were invaluable. So whatever you may find below are the mixed emotions which I could withdraw out of it.

This book helps you realize the pain and agony of a person who stands on his own beliefs, defying the society rules and so called modern world culture.

So today whenever I see a person fighting with the world just for his own beliefs and his own values, I can always see a bit of Roark in him.

The most important thing of a man’s character is his Integrity that is what holds him true to himself and gives him courage to fight everything else in this world.

Society and second-handers always keep on trying to turn others into second-handers, and they will never let them do something original and unique which they were not able to do.

It is the man’s own Ego which gets him thru. It is the love of his work which makes him happy.

But the society teaches him or her that everything that makes him or her happy is a sin and he or she will never be a happy person.

But it is a man’s basic right to be happy and the general world calls it his Selfishness.

“…It was the only thing I ever really wanted. And that’s the sin that can’t be forgiven–that I hadn’t done what I wanted. It feels so dirty and pointless and monstrous, as one feels about insanity, because there’s no sense to it, no dignity, nothing but pain–and wasted pain…why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world–to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage….”

I’m so happy I come across this book at the right time so I could appreciate it fully just as a book that one should appreciate. I wish more people would know about this book and read it at least one time! The thing I like the most about this book is that it made me think as none of them ever had done.
