I chose to read The Fountainhead based on a couple of recommendations. Written by Ayn Rand, it is an astounding piece of literary work that follows the life of a young architect, Howard Roark. The Fountainhead takes place in New York beginning in the mid-1920's and continues into the 1930's. In this famous composition, Rand explores her philosophy of Objectivism and paints a vivid backdrop for her characters to express her attitude towards society. Rand uses a parallel from the buildings that Roark creates to his personal beliefs and direction.

[...] The point, which Rand stresses a great deal in her writing, is her idea that selfishness is the most integral part of human progress and character. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants a thought provoking read. While the length of the book may discourage some, the profundity of the story and characters make it well worth reading. Rand has a beautiful writing style that uses fresh narration and a compelling simplicity. V. Context In addition to The Fountainhead, Rand has also written other primarily fiction works, including Atlas Shrugged and Anthem. [...]
