I actually really liked this book. Even though it's huge, the only part of it I found slow going was what I call "John Galt's rant" in about the
3rd or 2nd last chapter, because he basically just said the same thing over and over. I have since bought two of Ayn Rand's nonfiction books, but
haven't gotten to them yet.
I found myself agreeing with a lot of her philosophical ideas in this book, and almost as often found myself saying "Of course that's the way it is,
why didn't *I* think of that?"
I think you should at least give it a try. Some of the characters are truly memorable, like Francisco and Hank and Dagny. Some of the other
characters I found rather frustrating because they were so stupid, like James or Wesley, but despite that, they were all quite realistic characters.
