He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world, he dared to fall in love. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization, he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted. He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin: standing out from the mindless human herd. Ayn Rands classic tale of a dystopian future of the great Wea world that deprives individuals of a name or independenceanticipates her later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.
