Book Review: Anthem by Ayn Rand

Anthem by Ayn Rand

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, even though it was read to me rather than me reading the words on the page. From the first few sentences, I was caught up in this ‘sometime in the future’ world yet I get the feeling this was written looking at a political world of not so long ago. I’m not a political person, nor am I the sort of person that reads books because they ‘should’ be read. All I do is pick up a book that looks interesting, read it (or listen to it being read) and then make my own conclusions on it.

I could so easily have listened to much more detail though, it does lack ‘content’ other than the singular view of the lead character. I suspect that is part of the tale though, his view on what he sees and experiences and very little else. Yet I got enough detail to give quite a full picture of the awful world that he lives in and the relief of his escape and the finding of his ‘Brave New World’.
