Okay ladies so now that we are thinking about reading the classics like Jane Austen, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre I thought I would recommend one of my favorite classics, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It's been awhile since I read this book so  I don't remember all of the details, but I do remember how much I loved it and how much I couldn't put it down. The characters are like no one you would ever fall in love with, but some how during the book low and behold you do! The story is about an intransigent young architect named Howard, his violent battle against conventional standards and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman name Dominique, who struggles to defeat him. Dominique and Howard start a love affair that is painful for both of them. She wishes to destroy him because he represents her "ideal" and Howard, no matter what she does to him, keeps coming back because he is faithful and in love (like Edward)!!!  I'm not really good at summarizing books and making them sound appealing, but this book is really good and if you ever get the chance, definitely read it! I plan on re-reading soon hopefully. 



  1. i'll give it a whirl....

    plus.. Rory and Jess talk about this book during the Bastket episode.. i swear.. if i run out of books to read.. i'll just rewatch some gilmore girls episodes to get some ideas..

  2. haha i was thinkin the same thing about rory and jess. i would have to read a book a day for the rest of my life to catch up to their reading list though. I'll try it out kris after i read my list 0' books that i can't seem to start towards.
