Not trying to pick on you or anything, but how on Earth anyone can bear Ayn Rand is beyond me. The woman simply could not write. I was bored out of my mind by page 200 of Atlas Shrugged, this is coming from someone who is not adverse to long novels at all. I powered through, because I'm not really a quitter when it comes to reading, and gained absolutely nothing from the experience. The woman was a first-rate capitalist disguised as a second-rate philosopher who wrote third-rate fiction. Outside of the US she, thankfully, does not enjoy the same cult following she has here.
Just had to get it out of my system.
