I don't like to be redundant and post things on more than one board, but since I didn't get much action on RDP, I thought I'd try over here.
Anyone else read it? I'm not done, so don't give me any details about the end! I'm about 30% done. What a book! I had heard of it for years and heard many references to Ayn Rand that piqued my interest. But someone-somewhere told me that the book was glorifying selfishness (must have been one of those college professors LOL). So far, it seems to be the opposite, but I suppose it could be different based on the individual readers perspective. I debated putting up a thread about it until I was done because I don't want the end to be ruined for me, but I'm really dieing to discuss it with someone who has read it!
Sometimes it scares me, sometimes it pisses me off! The Rearden character reminds me of Jeff, though. ALWAYS thinking about business. It's just how his mind works. Helping me to understand him a little more in that regards. Kinda funny, I don't think it was intended as a psychoanalysis book, but it worked out that way for me a little.
