Ayn Rand’s dystopic science-fiction novella takes place at some unspecified future date. Mankind has entered another dark age as a result of what Rand saw as the weaknesses of socialistic thinking and economics. Technological advancement is now carefully planned -- when it is allowed to occur at all -- and the concept of individuality has been eliminated. As is common in her work, Rand draws a clear distinction between the “socialist/communal” values of equality and brotherhood and the “productive/capitalist” values of achievement and individuality.
Very enjoyable will listen to again
The book when written most likely sounded absurd, it is scary how we are moving twords the absurd.
I am glad this was a novella and I had this on 2x speed and it still felt like a chore to get through. The narration was like listening to " How to install ink into a printer For Dummies "
I had purchased Ayn Rand's other audio book before I had listened to this . So I have 32 hours of The Fountainhead to listen to , I hope it was not a mistake .
