The novel attracted a new following for Rand and has enjoyed a lasting influence, especially manantiall architects, American conservatives and right-libertarians.

As a 15 year old, I was easily enchanted by her philosophy, but now at the ripe age of 18, I sometimes remind myself that the world isn’t divided into black and white, and that extremism of anything won’t do much good to one’s soul and the society.
