Description

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.

ode to living

Makes me want to read more of her work . It's an ode to living in the present, for the self and wanting that freedom for others.

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.

Scares me how real this book sounds

Where does Anthem rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very enjoyable will listen to again

Any additional comments?

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

Amazing and relevant

This book is amazingly relevant. It becomes more and more relevant every year. It's like Ayn Rand was an Oracle.

Everyone should read this.

The beginning has a very eerie similarity to current day North Korea.

Amazing.

Better than 1984

A well written short story that was enjoyable every chapter. It was a little fast, but you can slow it down using the app if needed. This was the first book that got me interested in Ayn Rand's books.

Rand's classic

The narrator was nothing special but the story was one of Rand's best in my opinion.

Great story, ok performance

A great intro to Ayn Rand. I thought there wasn't enough emotion in the performance, so maybe find another reading of it.

Great story; lifeless reader

While I might not be a Rand lackey, I do find enjoyment in this classic dystopian tale. It is filled with lovely language and a potent message, even if that message is beat into you repeatedly. I'm no objectivist, but I do find satisfaction in the "selfish" message.

That being said, Rand haters may find it oddly fitting that the reader here performs with as little soul as they believe is inside of the author. It was just a bit...boring and safe.

But it isn't horrible and, if you're interested in the story, you'll get used to the voice. It's worth a shot.

Ayn Rand at her Ayn Rand-iest

Even separating the art from the artist, this is a book about one smart guy in a sea of idiots telling him not to think because that makes new ideas and those are bad for some reason. The moral is that you should do what you want/think is right even if everyone else disagrees with you. While a good moral on paper, the way Rand presents it is that everyone else IS stupid, and WILL try to stop you from thinking, so you should shun them from the beginning. It is a propaganda book espousing the author's own particular crap brand of ideology. Let's compare and contrast it with a good book, 1984. 1984 is a well though out book largely about the dangers of authoritarianism, but also incorporating complex philosophical themes revolving around free will, the nature of mankind to tend towards convenience, and rule of law. Anthem is a story about a Mary Sue named "Equality 7-2521" who is the only smart person in the entirety of civilisation. Every step of the way the powers that be try to stop him from being smart and and his own person, for seemingly no reason. Near the end of the story, in a scene 'reminiscent' of O'Brian's reconditioning of Winston in 1984, the fabled group of smart guys who are the only the only ones the government allows to think, tell the protagonist that thinking is bad actually, and he shouldn't do it. Unlike 1984, though there is no in depth discussion as to why. They seem to dislike knowledge because it makes people come up with ideas, and ideas are dangerous. There's no thought behind it whatsoever. The book is nothing more than a thinly veiled metaphor for Ryan's own perceived treatment. "Equality 7-2521" is just an author insert; the only intelligent person capable of reason in a sea of incompetence. None of Ryan's work is anything more than gutter trash, appealing only to 13 year olds and conservatives.

Hope

Anthem was a look in to humanity. Scary, disappointing yet hopeful. God al ways provides a way.
