Equality 7-2521 lives in the Dark Ages of the future, where all decisions are made by committee, all people live in collectives, all traces of individualism have been wiped out. But the spark of individual thought and freedom still burns in Equality 7-2521, a passion which he has been taught to call sinful. In a purely egalitarian world, he dares to stand forth from the herd -- to think and choose for himself, to discover electricity, and to love the woman of his choice. Now he has been marked for death for committing the ultimate sin: in a world where the great "we" reign supreme, he has rediscovered the lost and holy word "I". This provocative book is an anthem sung in praise of man's ego.… (meer)

    1984 door George Orwell (MMSequeira)
    MMSequeira: Both 1984 and Anthem we're inspired by Zamyatin's We. Both are worth reading, as cautionary tales.

Too simplistic and straight to the point, this seemed more like a manifesto on individuality rather than an actual story. The characters lack depth but maybe that was the point, that they weren't real people when they were stuck inside the conformity of the system. I don't know the circumstances of when Ayn Rand wrote this but it read as rather anti-communist to me. Interesting, considering I felt that the conformist society of Anthem was in many ways like our society now even with our celebrating of individuality and freedom. The writing was dry, but seemed to fit with who the narrator was, and I did think Ayn Rand's use of the pronoun "we" was a clever idea. ( )

I loved this book. I deeply appreciate authors that can transport me into a different world with so few words. Anthem has a lot of similar vibes as other classical dystopian novels like 1984 and The Giver. Ann Rand's writing was beautifully simple and moving. I appreciate dystopian novels because they showcase how damaging something good in small bits is horrific if done on a huge scale and Anthem was no different. It was captivating and so moving. ( )

It's hard not to compare Anthem to 1984. Anthem could be considered the unofficial and unintentional sequel. Written both by people with similar Soviet backgrounds and written with similar purposes in mind. The good thing Rand does is build up the background quick as that's what makes the story the most interesting. There isn't really a need to build much of a character since the whole point in for everyone to be character-less. Anthem follows a lot of Rand's other motifs with the society at large wanting for collectivist control. Here, that system has won. And in similar Randian fashion, the individual that resides in the spirit of man attempts to break free. As far as a complete philosophy being built up, you'll have to read her other novels to get that. Rand's attempt is to show what would happen if the ideology of communism developed a Utopian society - even when civilization is destroyed by it to rule over men by man is deeply set. Anthem does what it sets out to do - to promote the need for the "I" rather than the "we". Final Grade - B ( )

This is a short one, I started to read it in June and made it to Part 5 and life got in the way. I finally finished it in one sitting. It's nice to see where Hunger Games, Divergent, and all those other dystopian type of novels get their inspiration from. ( )

It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see. It is base and evil. It is as if we were speaking alone to no ears but our own. And we know well that there is no transgression blacker than to do or think alone. We have broken the laws. The laws say that men may not write unless the Council of Vocations bid them so. May we be forgiven!

This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest.
Rather would we be damned with you than blessed with all our brothers.
The fortunes of my spirit are not to be made into coins of brass and be flung into the wind as alms for the poor of spirit.
I understood that centuries of chains and lashes will not kill the spirit of man nor the sense of truth within him.
