My brother pushed me to read this book eventhough it was on the ‘shelf’ to be read in the near future. The pushback has always been the length 1,000+ pages and the fact it is fiction. I have read very little fiction for a long time in favor of history and scientific journals… Nonetheless I have finished it and here are my thoughts..
Great book. Thought provoking and eye opening. It is a tale describing what happens when those who work hard and support those who choose not to…decide to stop working for them. What happens to, for example, the Auto companies in the U.S. if the bailouts stopped – what if, I a tax payer said ‘NO’.
The book is fiction, there is a tale and adventure, and while I was bored with the romance parts of the book in favor of the serious issues outlined by Ms. Rand it is well told.
Bottom line: Read it and have a knowledgeable position and not one of ignorance.
