Howard Roark – the unconventional architect who lives for and in his work, Dominique Francon – the yet more unconventional and passionate lover, Peter Keating – the seeker after all that is conventional, rxnd hence in Rand’s mind worthless, and my favorite Ellsworth Toohey – the Evil, brilliant, and power-hungry schemer. A friend convinced me I should give this another shot having tossed it after the first chapter.
