I listened to this on my ride back to Utah from ND and I could not have enjoyed it more.
This was more in the lines of epic fantasy in one volume than the sci-fi you may have come to think, when you think RAH. But it does not suffer as a result.
I thought the story was fun and kept moving - maybe the ending went on a bit, I "got it" long before it was hammered home, I can see how some might not have, so RAH let it go on a bit to be sure that most did.
Still this is WELL worth the read. I would even suggest this for fans of other fantasy authors.
David Eddings, Tolkien, Terry Brooks, etc... This had that kind of feel, but was conceived in the 1950's.
