Lance Armstrong'un hayatı kendi başına bir ilham kaynağı olmasına rağmen, kitabın bazı bölümlerini ciddiye alabileceğimi hissetmedim. Onun tutumu bazen benim için biraz fazla ukala oldu.
The Fountainhead is well-known as the novel that put Ayn Rand and her "philosophy" on the map, but it's rife with problems, an inconsistent work which is ultimately an unsatisfying read. The most infuriating part of the book is the ending, which I will not reveal here, except to say that it entirely undermines Rand's theory of personal property. Roark is the same kind of vandal that Rand drags through the mud, and his trial scene is one of the most dishonest passages I have ever read. Philosophical issues aside, The Fountainhead suffers from a much more fundamental flaw: Rand is simply not a very good novelist. She does a poor job of putting us in a scene and has her characters speak in ridiculous 4-page speeches. There are enough interesting ideas in the novel to prevent me from completely condemning The Fountainhead but I cannot recommend it.
