Well, though I agree Atlas Shrugged is a very good book. To judge them against each other is actually rather inane. Atlas Shrugged, is basically The Fountainhead on a larger scale and vice versa, The Fountainhead is Atlas Shrugged in a more personal setting. Atlast Shrugged deals more with what happens to the world and The Fountainhead deals more with what happens to the immediate people and surroundings of one man. If you put Howard Roark in Atlas Shrugged he'd be another man in Galt's army, or simply, Galt himself. So, in my opinion, they are both astounding peices of literature, but to compare them is not a wise, or even an appropriate thing to do.

I have to agree. Even Ayn Rand admitted that "Fountainhead" was the lesser of the two.
