Indescribable

Not very often do you come across a book, so enigmatic that it makes the other work of art fade into the hindsight. I am yet to read something as immaculate as The Fountainhead. I am yet to see a character as heartbreakingly honest as Howard Roark. I salute the lady who thought light years ahead of her time. A book that changed the world for the better. A world wherein people of fibre still exist!!

Brilliant

A wonderful book. It is great to know that such a person like Howard Roark existed at least in the imagination. A spectacular portrayal of the the characters and their stories. You'll may not see a building the same way again after finishing this book. This is a story of a Hero. A keeper for sure. My personal 'the best book ever'. A brilliant piece. I go back to reading this book again and again and derive great joy in doing so every time.

Miss it and you'll miss something damn GOOD!!!

After reading fantasy for a year, I was looking for something more real...(Yup there you go I said it!) First thought of picking up a biography or a comedy, then some of my Internet friends suggested this book, "The Fountainhead". I started it expecting nothing but an easy, simple read....but Boy! It just blew me away!! The characterization in no other book I read til date has matched the depth or complexity(how different people can be!) displayed by Ayn Rand. It will show Life in different p...

Read second time recently... simply brilliant.

First time I read this gem was almost a decade back. two weeks back, it was second turn. This is not very easy for weak hearted people. I remember one of my co-worker in Florida where he read the book and later after a year was scolding that because this book had so much influence on him, he retracted his personal relation and only focused on work resulting in poor appraisal and poor recognition in project.

well I can just laugh at that kinds of foolish conclusion. It ask you to believe in y...

Worth a single moment spend on it

Well, starting such a review is always the hardest, especially when you're speechless about the work & art.
Ayn Rand has put something in it that you've never encountered before, I bet. This novel is not a story-teller, it contains your life in itself, in fact, the lives of all the people in this world. This will get you on a ride & at the end, you will ask yourself, why didn't I read it before? This is Ayn Rand's work, you will get bored to hell in some pages, but one suggestion, stick to it...

cheap paper quality

I ordered this novel but the quality of paper Is very cheap, (does paperback mean that?) it's like those yellowish pages that u see at a cheap novel shop with duplicate novels, now I think I might as well have taken a stroll at one of those shops and may be it cud be a better deal than this if reading is all that I cared for, the level of paper used is so poor that u might not want to read it at all, feeling screwed here, and not just this book couple of other books too have the same qualit...

My Best book ever.....

This is the best book i ever read till now. Its not very often that you come across such books and obviously such characters like the protagonist Horward Roark ; Dominique Francon and of course Gail Wynand... thw whole portrayal of the society, nature of their thoughts and the portrayal of an ideal man in shape of Horward Roark was awesome and worth applause...Amidst craps of present day novels n literature which seem more like a typical bollywood shit it offers you a totally intellectual and...

Paperback Book Quality

If you want to read "The Fountain Head", this book will kill the pleasure that you get from the story.
Let me describe the book. It is 7"x4.25" and more than 700 pages. This small and dumpy book can't even be held in hands for 5 minutes without discomfort.
The poor quality paper will yellow with age and the binding will cause the papers to come out by the time you have reached the 100th page if you are not careful.
The print quality is a very small font with tight spacing and even smaller bo...
