This was a terrific read, that sheds light on the meaning of individualism. I recommend it completely. I was pulled in from the start, and the dialog, as well as the great voice acting from Mr Hurt, continued to pull me back in. The story, performance, and overall this book, is magnificent.
If you think for yourself and don't follow the masses then read this book. You will find yourself wanting to be Howard or Domanique and will see the people you work with or are related to in Peter, Touhy, or Mitchell.
Book was great, but it was very long. One key issue was that some of the main characters sounded very similar so the dialogue got a bit confusing.
This was my second book I've listened from Ayn Rand. First one was the Atlas Shrugged. With that said, I had pretty high expectations for this book. It delivered. One of the best stories I have ever heard. The ever present struggle of human kind to recognize the greatness of an individual, that rises above the average, before he/she becomes just another legend in the books.
