Kelly, please delete this review. Here are more words. And more words and more and more and more.
I listened to all 52 hours of Atlas Shrugged one year ago during the month of December. There was something meditative (and slightly masochistic) about the relentlessness of my listening. 52 hours is a lot of hours. But I enjoyed every minute; although, I probably paced a mile during John Galt's mega-speech, an explanation and defense of the philosophy of Objectivism.
With subject-matter this dense, one would assume that it makes more sense to read the book rather than listen to it, but, honestly, who has time to read a book that thick?! Moreover, there is something haunting and utterly captivating in Christopher Hunt's narration. His voice is timeless and classic - perfectly matching the timelessness of the book. Given the current economic climate and our changing social and political landscape, this book is must-listen for the holiday season.
I don't know what prompted me to download this audiobook and start listening to it. Maybe I was in a funk and wanted something light to cheer me up? Or maybe it was recommended on one of Audible's editors' lists? It's not the kind of book I go for. It's fluffy and sweet - a predictable romantic comedy with a slightly annoying protagonist and a leading man whose name is "Heath Champion". Heath Champion. Seriously?! But despite all of this, and despite a female narrator who over reaches trying to capture the bravado of some of the male characters in the story, I really enjoyed the book. Once I was in, I was hooked. It was a great listen - that perfect romantic comedy that leaves you feeling cheered up and satisfied.
