This is no ordinary book. Its a statement , a bible, a manual to life. The more you read it, the more flaws you find in yourself. The more you follow the protagonist, the more unhappier you are.. and then there is no turning back... and then there is enlightenment. You gotta read it to feel it... and its NOT for casual reading or for kids.|
The story is structured in such a way that the characters; Roark, Dominique, Wynand, Keating and Toothey epitomize the extreme of their kind. I feel that in real life we find a mix of such characters. The literature jumps back and forth between abstract representation and literary representation.. the story will appear different to different readers.
My Rating: 6/5
