Ayn Rand's long-winded lectures throughout the story became excruciating to listen to and I ended up tuning much of them out - and I didn't lose track of the story by doing so.
I've down loaded 50 Shades of Grey - what a contrast!
I might - Atlas Shrugged was difficult to listen to but it may not have been Brick's performance as much as the script from which he read.
John Galt - I know he's "the guy" the story's about. But I think his character is so fairy tale that Rand could have made him just that - a figment of one's imagination.
I had to learn about Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged so I could participate in current political exchanges with some level of informed knowledge. In a perfect world, in a perfect time, some 60+ years ago this story probably made sense. But greed and corruption have so crippled the American Dream that we'll need a decade or more just to dig opportunity out of the ground in which it has been buried before the dream can become a reality for "all Americans".
