Beschrijving

Mankind has entered another Dark Age. Individuality has been eliminated. People refer to themselves only by using "we" and "they". All live in collective homes and the mass is more important than the individual. However even in this far future, there is someone called Equality 7-2521 who stands against the norm. He wants to dig deeper into what he has been told and learnt but is it allowed? Will he get himself in danger? Has the future made some progress or will the problems remain the same?
This dystopian novel by Ayn Rand discusses all those topics and holds the answers to all of your questions.

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Ayn Rand was a Russian-American author who lived in the period 1905-1982. She wrote several fiction novels, two of which, "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged", gained her wide popularity. She was also interested in philosophy and many of her later works introduced the idea of "Objectivism", the philosophical system which she developed herself. The critical reception she received during her lifetime was varying, but one thing the reader can be sure of, is that Ayn Rand’s works are nothing like commercial literature.

Over de auteur
Photo Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand (1905-1982) is een invloedrijke schrijfster en filosofe. Ze werd geboren in Sint-Petersburg. Als opgroeiend meisje zag ze de negatieve kanten van de Russische revolutie. Na haar afstuderen emigreerde ze in 1926 naar de Verenigde Staten, in haar ogen het land waar een individu zichzelf kan zijn. Wereldberoemd werd ze na het verschijnen van haar magnum opus De eeuwige bron, een boek waarover velen zeggen: ‘Dit boek heeft mijn leven veranderd.’
