The Fountainhead!!!

I don't know from where to start or how...this book is THE best one i've ever read...i really don't know how to express what i feel about the book but i can't just let it go without writing at least a few lines about it...first of all, the characterization is just perfect...never before have the characters of a novel been so simple yet so complex at the same time...Dominique, Howard, Gail, Ellsworth...wow!!! what varieties of character...the games played by human mind is far more significant and deadly than any stunt ever done... the theory of the creator and the second-hander put forth by the author is truly amazing...we can't help but wonder which category we belong to...the nature of human beings has never been put so plainly and clearly...it is true that compromise and sacrifice have become indisputable virtues while personal integrity is treated as a social evil...to say that i loved the book because the characters are so complex and real would just make me another Peter Keating...but then we are all Peter Keatings of the world, aren't we?....we are constantly in need for appreciation, with a little tinge of insecurity, a feeling of not being sure about what we do...this is where the book complements 'the alchemist' that if we pursue what we REALLY want in life we are sure to succeed immaterial of the odds against us...

Well, this book has truly touched my heart...so i'd suggest everyone to read this (with a li'l patience which you'll need initially) so that you can understand and feel what exactly i'm trying to convey through this post...people who've read this book please back me up here, for, i'm sure you'd agree with me...

It is quite unfortunate that you were super-lazy to have given up a chance to be a reporter (remember that coimbatore portal thingie)...
