Description

The Fountainhead is an unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, The Fountainhead is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers, then rejects, the seductive power of fame and money, finding that in the end, creative genius must triumph. His battle against mediocrity gives a gripping new dimension to the concept of evil. The Fountainhead is at once dramatic, poetic, and demanding. A statement of principles for its author, the novel champions the cause of individualism and remains one of the towering books on the contemporary intellectual scene.

This is the best book to start with if you are beginning to explore the works of Ayn Rand. It's my personal favorite of her works, and not as overwhelming to someone unfamiliar with her style and philosophy as Atlas Shrugged might be. Howard Roarke is a hero you can really root for, and Dominique is complex and fascinating. Though thought-provoking, it is also eventful and dramatic, rather than dry and cerebral.
