13. I agree with Buckley that Fountainhead is an engaging book...

Although I read it when I was a teenager so that could have been why I read the Tome. I didn't agree with the whole premise and, as I read the book, I wondered why this guy punished himself and had to have his way all the time.

One thing I asked myself what if Howard Rourke came up against another Architect who was just as sure as he was about his design. And what if everyone built only for themselves...

Anyway, i watched the movie and it was just horrible. I like Gary Cooper as an actor but that movie was awful.
