    My review on Amazon:
    A good story well told. A fan of Ayn Rand's fiction will find a lot to like here: thematic elements from The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged, and We The Living, and some direct references, too, if you pay attention. Like Atlas Shrugged in its day, the Untethered highlights the enforced altruism of twenty-first century society. Like the Fountainhead, the main characters are determined to create without anyone restricting, limiting, or controlling their visions. Like We The Living, some struggle with the demands of the prevailing collectivist mentality but ultimately refuse to submit, regardless of the consequences.

    This book is a libertarian's delight. I enjoyed every page and was disappointed only at the end because there was no more to read. I look forward to Mr Southwick's next tour de force.

    There is a force in the soul that begs for release, a glimmer of reason that calls to the essence of what it means to be human. Yet this truth rarely fits the boxes in which we were born, and shines too brightly for some to ignore...

    A juvenile delinquent chases his dream to build the greatest aircraft in history--and the world tries to destroy him. A rising political star runs from her childhood dream--and the world encourages her on. An artist tries to make his father proud--at the cost of everything he loves. A math genius employs her calculations on the tennis court--to the shock of all. A self-loathing geneticist hides below the streets of Las Vegas--and rebels against the morality of mankind.
