I'm sending this book to a fellow bookcrosser and it was purchased specifically for this purpose.

It's the story of a young architect battling convention and his love affair with a woman who wants to defeat him.

Thanks a lot for the book!! I got it this morning and I had to rush to work, so I didn't have time to even look at it properly. However, I love the beautiful bookmark with the friendly words. Thank you a lot for your generosity.

I really loved this book. It's a kind of novel of ideas, but the characters really touched me. Specially Roark, his struggle to be honest at all times avoiding all compromise, it's a lesson. It really made me think. I see Rand's point, although I think that Roark has been far too idealized. By the way, am I the only one who thinks that Gail Wynard is a psychopath?

******************

SPOILER***********
I know he is the one who will finally support Roark, and it's a pity that Rand didn't give that trait to Austen Heller.

I liked Dominique as well. She is a very intelligent woman, strong, successful, who can have it all all by herself. But somehow she discovers that she needs something more to life. Learning to love absolutely will be her lesson, and she learns it.

I was surprised to see a novel in which Americans can discuss Communist ideas. Probably there has no been any country more anti-communist and more right-wing than the USA. It really surprised me. I didn't always agree with Rand's points, but she has offered a vision of New York as the centre of the world, the place to be and the spot of the strongest passions. She must have really loved America and New York. I could feel it in every description, notwithstanding all its problems.

And Petey Keating. I really felt sorry for him. He is not that bad, really. He shouldn't have been punished like that at the end.

Thank you so much for the surprise book! And for the sweets too. ;)

I don't know when I'll manage to read it, but I must admit I doubted between this book and the other one. :)

Hugs!
