the audio version brings more life to the story because of the marvelous narration and characterization of Ayn Rand's voice
the skillful manner in which the faults in Ayn Rand's philosophy are exposed, as the author's reasons as to how Rand's childhood experiences formed her philosophy of rationalism.
Her voice is reminiscent of that of actress Kate Mulgrew (of Captain Janeway fame). Her husky deep female voice, and the unique emotional quality of her narration, is perfect to tell the story of this famous woman. And perfect also in capturing her Russian accent.
I couldn't stop listening. It was compelling, both the writing and narration
My first husband was a devotee of Ayn Rand's philosophy and we spent long hours talking about how make it our life philosophy. My husband was completely devoted to these ideas. This occurred at the height of her popularity. I will never forget her impact on our lives. I read all her books. Nevertheless, I had problems accepting certain aspects of her rational beliefs. I will never forget those times and her impact on our lives. This biography is fascinating in the way it presents a very human Ayn Rand and how her charisma convinced so many to worship her.
As an introduction, I would have preferred some more time spent on how ordinary people fulfill their role as lightworkers
Unnatural inflections, sentences with inappropriate pauses, and mispronounced words (for example "ethereal" is mispronounced 3 different ways)
There were many insights and explanations that were news to me
It was hard for me to respect the content of the writing due to the distraction of the bad narration. The book itself was so interesting, I pushed through the narration so I could finish the whole story.
Original story. Excellent writing. Superb characters by narrator. Non-stop entertainment. Hard to categorize. A coming of age story about a rebellious young man who survived a traumatic childhood event. Scary characters, but not too gory. No gratuitous sex. Not psychotic. I loved it.
its an original
