did not like it
bookshelves: literature-modern, most-hated, not-in-collection, nonsense
Read in January, 1991

Even as a college student-- who should have been open to the ideas of selfish individuality clearly expressed in Rand's work-- I saw this for the one-note tract that it is. Perhaps if she or her admirers (Ryan et al) would be more appreciated if they weren't so darn smug and unfriendly. An actual personality can go along way, or at least a modicum of compassion.
