Everything I said in my Atlas Shrugged review no longer holds true. I never want to read anymore Ayn Rand. Ever.
This book is the definition of didactic. Her philosophy permeates every character,every plot twist. But for a while, it's interesting. What will Toohey do next? What is everyone's real motivation? But eventually it just gets so bogged down in the message that by the end I felt I was being flogged.
She also has a horrible tendency to have characters answer questions by saying, "Yes, " Yes, Roark. Yes, Gail. NO NO NO.
Ok, so now I can say I've read it.
