The book Anthem is about a government corrupted society that teaches all of its citizens to use the word we. It follows the journey of Equality who tries to make his own rules and do things for himself. This book made really think about how lucky everyone in America is. We each have our own individuality, and we can express ourselves freely. This book is somewhat based off what happened in the author's life where her government tried to control her society. All and all it was a great writing style that you have to pick up and learn as you keep reading. It was a great read!

This book was required to rread this year. It is a dystopiam novel with the main character Equalitu7-2521. He is the outstander in the society. He is looked down upon becausr aof his looks and intelligecne. Difference is bad. When equalltiy finds a tunnel from the unmentionable times it leads him to multiple tranhressions and eventually to run away into the uncharted forest. Plus throughout the book he finds his special one Lliberty 5-3000. Liberty followa him into the forest. Where they find a surpise from the Unmentionable times. Overall the book was decent towards the end the book becomes wordy and boring. Ayn Rand points out during the entire book the concept of the individual. She bases the book on the communist society of Russia in the futer but so called located somewhere in the United States.

Just as relevant today as it was in the 1930s. Rand reminds us of the inherant dangers of the collective.

I had to read this book for school. I actually liked it. It was pretty entertaining, but it took me a bit to understand some things...
