I love this book. My first time reading it was in my sophomore English class, and ever since I have been trying to find it again.
This book provides a very unique view of a futuristic society. True, the "live and think as one" concept has been done before, but every author has their own style, and I believe Ayn Rand's rendition is spectacular. Not only does it reach out to those who feel outcast in their own societies because they are different, but also to the strength of one's own dreams, and the power of the individual to rise up against oppression. This is a beautiful work of literature, and I highly recommend it.
