    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    "Too Lengthy"
    Overall

    I thought I would never get through this audiobook. It is very repetitive and too long.
    I wish I had read the abridged version instead.
    The content was good, but I didn't like the writing style. It was hard to connect with the characters. I felt like I "knew" them, but only in a very shallow kind of way. I was never so happy to finish a book and it took a whole month.

  • The Garden of Last Days: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By Andre Dubus III
    • Narrated By Dan John Miller

    Story

    Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus' #1 bestseller, House of Sand and Fog, and has an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

    "Waste of Time"
    Overall

    I struggle to get to the end hoping it would
    get better. It only got worse. This is the worse
    book I've downloaded.
