Publisher's Summary

Ayn Rand’s dystopic science-fiction novella takes place at some unspecified future date. Mankind has entered another dark age as a result of what Rand saw as the weaknesses of 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. As is common in her work, Rand draws a clear distinction between the “socialist/communal” values of equality and brotherhood and the “productive/capitalist” values of achievement and individuality.

Amazingly GOOD READ!!!!!

Iam in 8th grade and have to do a report on "Anthem" I was a little afraid at first thinking it was to advanced, but I understood every bit of it. Life in this society is unthinkable. "I" love that Prometheus found his way.
Also the Narration was a perfect tone for me.
Again, ANTHEM IS A MUST READ FOR ALL AGES.

The book when written most likely sounded absurd, it is scary how we are moving twords the absurd.
