It is a short book, but its unbelievable how much an author can put into those pages. Anthem is one of my very favorite book, and I have found myself going back to it again and again. The journey the main character takes from facelessness to become a real person with a name and an identity is very intriguing. It has taught me to step out from the crowd and make myself known. :) very very good book

Overall a fascinating look a society where individualism has been all but eliminated, Anthem tells the story of a man, Equality 7-2521, who has been gifted with creativity and a thirst for knowledge - passions which have been deemed sinful and illegal. Equality 7-2521 goes on a journey, an odyssey of sorts, discovering truths about the human race and recovering the ideas from the past, as well as truth about himself as a man. Rand's view of the future in collectives is bleak and grim, but her prose is engaging; the reader is swept along in the tale. My only complaint is that the main character gets on one's nerves very quickly; however, this defect is minor in this powerful novella about the power of the individual.
