"Anthem" by Ayn Rand. I figured it was about time I read what she had to say for herself instead of summaries, but didn't have the energy to slog through Atlas Shrugged. Didn't make me an Objectivist, but an interesting story with good warnings.
INTRODUCTION TO AYN RAND AND ANTHEM INCLUDES QUESTIONS AND ANSWERSI recently discovered the Ayn Rand Institute and its FREE book program. Teachers can order free classroom sets of books. I ordered Anthem for my class. It is short and is a dystopian novel much like Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Bridget-Riggs
