    Summary

    This Novella by Ayn Rand was first published in England in 1938. It takes place at some unspecified future date when mankind has entered another dark age characterized by irrationality, collectivism, and socialistic thinking and economics. Technological advancement is now carefully planned (when it is allowed to occur at all) and the concept of individuality has been eliminated (for example, the use of the word "I" is punishable by death). Rand, as a teenager living in Soviet Russia, initially conceived Anthem as a play. This is a novel upholding Rand's central principles of her philosophy and of her heroes: reason, values, volition, individualism.

    Interesting book, decent reader, not perfect but not deserving of some of the negative comments either in my opinion.

    - low volume level

    Good book, but this recorded audio is way too quiet.

    awful book, hard to understand. Pointless meaning.

    - research her admiration for serial killers

    It's funny how everyone who expounds the wonders of this & her other "books" tells the rest of us that we should be required to read her drivel.

    Gust

    - Poor reader

    Ugh. Mispronounced words, stumbling reading... poor over-dramatic style that seems, at times, to be more fitting for 3rd grade poetry contest. Book is good, reader is so bad.

    I started listening and was so caught up in the story that I could not turn it off. Well read.
