Hehehehe. This says it all, really. I feel sorry for anyone over age 16 who can't see how wretched Ayn Rand's writing is (hint: do long speeches belong in novels? even "novels of ideas"?). More importantly, I wonder if enough readers understand the social context of this novel having been written in the period between 1936 - 1943 by a victim of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Enjoyed both posts ... thanks Joyce :)
(BTW I don't have to say, pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain :)

You've done a brilliant job of summing up my feelings about this book. I can only watch so many B movies & read so many pages of elitist drivel before I have to ask myself how I'll ever get back the time I've squandered. Ayn Rand's brand of bad writing and freshman philosophy is so much like L. Ron Hubbard's that I've sometimes wondered if they were either twins or just the same person. It would explain a lot, wouldn't it?
