    Story
    (158)

    The Fountainhead studies the conflict between artistic genius and social convention, a theme Ayn Rand later developed into the idealistic philosophy knows as Objectivism. Rand's hero is Howard Roark, a brilliant young architect who won't compromise his integrity, especially in the unconventional buildings he designs.

    MD says: "One of the great books, but long."
    "Atlas Shrugged a 100 times better"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. Great Court scene with Howard Roark


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ayn Rand? Why or why not?

    Absolutely.


    What does Edward Herrmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great Narration.


    Any additional comments?

    If you read only 1 Ayn Rand book let it be Atlas Shrugged.

    What did you like best about Poison Study? What did you like least?

    I was intrigued by the story line.


    What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

    The narration sounded more like someone reading a book rather than telling a story. It was a chore to finish it.
