Ispirato alla vita del rivoluzionario architetto americano Frank Lloyd Wright, La fonte meravigliosa è la storia di Howard Roark, giovane architetto pieno di talento, deciso a rinunciare a fama e carriera pur di non scendere a compromessi con i suoi ideali. Uomo integro e fedele a se stesso, lotta contro i pregiudizi e le convenzioni per affermare il suo genio artistico. Ma è anche la storia di Dominique Francon, la donna che, pur amandolo disperatamente, farà di tutto per sfuggirgli e per distruggerlo. Sarà un amore contrastato, sofferto e impossibile che si intreccerà indissolubilmente con la vita e la carriera di Roark e che ne determinerà gli esiti. Uno dei romanzi più amati in America e nel mondo intero (ha venduto sei milioni di copie), un inno alla virtù dell'individuo e all'anticonformismo, una grande storia d'amore. Un libro di culto, un classico senza tempo.

This book is the equivalent of a drunk, eloquent asshole talking to you all night at a bar. You know you should just leave and you could never explain later why you didn't, but you just sit there listening to the guy ramble on. It's all bullshit, and his arguments defending, say, his low-key but all Leggi tutto

As literature, I found the book dry, predictable, and overwrought. As philosophy, I found it circular, wholly unfounded, and completely contradicting reality. This book is like a net set for unsuspecting minds. It breaches their defenses with a twisted logic, attempting to preclude any conclusions bu Leggi tutto

I think her philosophy must surely have been created as a reaction to her experiences with Bolsheviks. That said, I think this is a modern masterpiece, Rand's reform Leggi tutto

I went over to the other side... & made it back! I will admit that I had been properly warned (Liana, others...). You read “The Fountainhead” because many other readers have, before you; its a book as popular as “One Hundred Years of Solitude.” This awful novel begins strong, climaxes early (no pun Leggi tutto
