It gets predictable, but I still love this book for its concepts, research and well-though fusion of fiction and mythology. I'd buy a book from Amish with my eyes closed after reading this. Can't wait for the final book of the Shiva Trilogy to come out.
Absolutely loved this book. Especially the two great speeches - From Ellsworth Toohey to Peter Keating and from Howard Roark to the Courtroom. These are evident how well thought the characters are. Loved the description of Gail Waynand - the man who could have been.
Reached halfway through the book. Good combination of research and imagination has lead the author to write such a great book. Despite over-integrating the ancient and modern societies, it's gripping so far. Too bad I can't get enough time to finish it in single read.
