Cannot put it down
This book by Ayn Rand is absolutely wonderful. The suspense is very good for someone who feels nervous. It is easily to read, seeing as how this is a last century piece of work. I suggest that a philosopher or science fiction nerd DEFINITELY reads this once in their lifetime. This should also be assigned in Elementary Schools.
Im not a democrat, and don't like republicans. This story transcends both to remind us that we have a responsibility to ourselves, and it's not anyone's job to to govern us or tell us what to think (politically correct anyone?). As a people, we choose to give our freedoms away for whatever purpose you want. To me, this should be required reading starting in elementary then up through college to capture all of those who have been brainwashed into the collective good. Ann Rand, so prophetic. Brilliantly done, but I do get bored of the rambling she tends to have in parts of her books. We get the point.
It is filled with action an mystery I just scion books but this book is awesome and wold recommend for everyone to read.
