The performance is good. The pace is good. This book is worth your time. That's all I have to say.
If you like Ayn Rand you will like this book. If you agree with her philosophy you will like it. Even if you don't agree, like me, you may still like it, however you must be willing to wade through the onslaught of ego is everything that the book provides. I would highly recommend it.
This book is amazing and it also has one of my favorite literary characters. Howard Roark is the shit. Read this to better understand how anyone, men in particular should conduct themselves in a second hand society.
The print on this book is quite small for me. I originally read this book in high school and never forgot it. While in a second hand bookstore I found an old copy of Atlas Shrugged, another I had read back in the day. When I saw Audible had it in this format I was on it!
Rourke. Of course. He is the man whose ideals and philosophies show that the rest of the world the flaws in their thinking.
I read a review that if I bought this book I wanted Christopher Hurt to tell the tale. I am so happy I followed this advice. He does a wonderful job in his inflections, and his voice is easy to listen to. Hurt makes this book come alive.
Collectivism vs Individualism, What is our world?
This book made a huge impression on me as a high school student. I never forgot it and am so glad I found it on Audible.
This book shows the exaggerated, yet inevitable end of rampant Socialism. Scary to see how a book written so long ago still applies to our society today! While i tend to agree on most points of the main thesis of this book, I find it's regular degradation of religion, and religious beliefs as offensive.
I found myself trying to get through this book. Fortunately it's very well written. But I found the characters unlikable and, even with all the character development, very one dimensional. It seems like the main characters did things simply because they were locked into a short set of rules. In fact, even the main character who is supposed to embody creativity and rebelling against the mainstream because of how he thinks things should be done, is still fully constrained. I think every bit of this book could have been brought across in a much shorter book - almost as if she decided to use 10000 words when 100 would do. It makes me concerned about trying something like Atlas. I never read abridged works, but that might be a consideration with this one.
