Anthem (1937)- Ayn Rand
Verdict: Try it.
Anthem takes place in a future where each person refers to themselves as “we.” As you can imagine, the idea of the individual has been completely removed from human consciousness. Although some argue that Anthem’s world is not a fair critique of collectivism, I think it is a great read. It feels like a mix between a pre-electricity version of George Lucas’s THX 1138 and an Albert Camus novella. Like those? Then you will like Anthem. Even if you don’t, when a book runs at 104 pages, its worth a try from anyone.
