Anthem is quite confusing when reading the first couple of pages. When I figured out that there was no "I" in their language or thinking, the book made a little more sense to me. I both dislike and like this story. I dislike this story because of the ending. I want to know more about what they did after they found the house from the Unmentionable times. I liked this story because of Equality 7-2521's rebellion. He chose to love The Golden One even when he was not supposed to and he developed the reuse of the lightbulb which caused him to be rejected in front of the World Council. This story shows the importance of freedom and individuality. I really enjoyed Anthem by Ayn Rand.
