Anthem is a dystopian fiction novella by Ayn Rand, written in 1937 and first published in 1938 in England. It takes place at some unspecified future date when mankind has entered another dark age characterized by irrationality, collectivism, and 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.

  • Awesome Book!

    This book is great if you like dystopias and satisfying endings☺️ It really makes one think about the world and what it would be like without electricity, in a non-utopian form of course!

    This book is quotable, admirable, and relatable. Originally getting turned to Ayn Rand by Neil Peart (Drummer, Rush) I had yet to read her work. Let me make things perfectly clear, THIS WILL NOT BE THE LAST BOOK I READ OF HERS. "Anthem" is a thought-provoking and heart-warming tale of individualism and it's importance in society. This should be required reading before finishing High School/prior to entering University. I can't stress enough the importance of this message. EGO. -Kellen Schomaeker

    Starts with promise, but ends up with pages of redundant pontificating.

    This book actually required me to read nearly every word in every chapter in order for me to even begin to understand what was going on- and I can't remember the last time I needed to do that to fully understand a book. This book requires a mind that isn't so closed or one minded. You have to be ready to be confused in the beginning, and piece it all together as you read through the book. Reviewers saying they couldn't understand the book or find have to replace the "we" with "I" in order to read it are telling me that they are incapable of thinking outside the box and generally speaking may be unable to read in a difficult, yet logical and intelligent manner. If you desire to read this book, be prepared to be confused at the beginning, yet understand nearly everything later. Also, please remember that if a book can make you ask questions that may not have a single answer to them, it's a very good thing.
