The Fountainhead has become an enduring piece of literature, more popular now than when published in 1943. On the surface, it is a story of one man, Howard Roark, and his struggles as an architect in the face of a successful rival, Peter Keating, and a newspaper columnist, Ellsworth Toohey. But the book addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of those themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give this book its enduring influence. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am glad I read this novel at this point in my life. I guess, I was born and raised to be a Peter Keating until I found a Roark Howard in my mind, stubborn and unflinching, while writing Yin-Yang series. I will not go back to being Peter Keating. No matter what.
That said, the first night scene between Roark and Dominique was distasteful. How could a writer of Rand's caliber go wrong with basics?
Two, the answer is not black OR white. The answer lies in seeing the black in white and the white in black.
It's not dependence vs. independence, it's to know WHERE to be dependent and WHEN to be independent.
At times the narrative's details and descriptions are longwinded. The book brings out one's personal feelings. As a way of examining one's own values and principles.
