A better writer, or a writer less concerned with indoctrination, may have been able to draw a more sympathetic Howard Roark. However, the relationship between our hero and heroine is never fully convincing to me, and I find it highly disturbing that Rand felt it necessary to make rape an essential and even positive element of their union.

He had to find 42 different ways of saying the same thing, just so the people could understand him. The villain of the book is Ellsworth Toohey, an architectural critic of note, who denounces Roark for his failure to adhere to the accepted standards of the day.

Whether you love or hate Ayn Rand, Ellsworth M. Do these Randy exceptionalists not understand that bad luck alone can leave anyone destitute at any time by virtue of lawsuit, market crashes and depressions, dread disease, acts of God, business reversal and a litany of other garden variety uncontrolled catastrophes?

This of course is all contextualized by the new revelations of her love of some ps I judge people by this book.

And that’s how I feel about The Fountainhead. But for me, although it was so time-consuming, the book was worth reading. When they’re mad at someone and want to punish them, or even if they’re madly in love with someone, they won’t stop at any length to torture the other party.
