Excerpt

place to hide them. So we carried them to the City Cesspool. And then we made the discovery.

It was on a day of the spring before last. We Street Sweepers work in brigades of three, and we were with Union 5-3992, they of the half-brain, and with International 4-8818. Now Union 5-3992 are a sickly lad and sometimes they are stricken with convulsions, when their mouth froths and their eyes turn white. But International 4-8818 are different. They are a tall, strong youth and their eyes are like fireflies, for there is laughter in their eyes. We cannot look upon International 4-8818 and not smile in answer. For this they were not liked in the Home of the Students, as it is not proper to smile without reason. And also they were not liked because they took pieces of coal and they drew pictures upon the walls, and they were pictures which made men laugh. But it is only our brothers in the Home of the Artists who are permitted to draw pictures, so International 4-8818 were sent to the Home of the Street Sweepe

What can one say about Ayn Rand. She surpasses the superlatives. I am amazed that books written by her in 1940s are still so relevant.

"Anthem" is not her best but a brilliant book though. Her best is "We The Living" though more proclaimed ones are "Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged".

Her passion is infectious and characters are so inspiring. If you want to read about good things in life, feel positive pick this one up.
