Publisher's Summary

This gripping tale of the future anticipates Ayn Rand's later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. In the dark ages of the future, individuals have no name, no independence, and no values. In this faceless world, one man dares to love the woman of his choice and to seek and find knowledge.
©1995 Leonard Peikoff and the Estate of Ayn Rand (P)1997 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

Anthem

Compelling. This is one of my favorite stories, contains a strong message. You will find yourself listening to Rand's story again and again. I find other Ayn Rand's writings a bit long, this one is very much to the point. Other favorite titles: Starship Troopers, Dealers of Lighting, Second Coming of Steve Jobs and Snow Crash.

Anthem is an often re-listen

Anthem is one of the most beautiful novellas that I have ever read or heard. Reading the novella, you can feel the struggle, the turmoil, and the character growth. Listening to the novella, the beauty and the near poetry come forward. I found myself backspacing often, just to re-enjoy the power and the beauty of particular sections. This novella will be an often re-listen!

Surprising

I had to read this book for my degree, so was happy to find it on audible. The strange thing is I loved it, while everyone else on the course said it was rubbish. It just goes to show that sometime the imagery projected from listening to an audible version over reading a flat book can make all the difference.
I thought the subject matter was very interesting and the whole thing really made me think. Have a listen and see what you think.
