It took me a year to get through it, and it is not an easy read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are some valuable insights in Ayn Rand's Objectivism.

Interesting commentary on politics and the economy. Can see why it's controversial but liked it anyway.

You don't have take every idea verbatim to have your mind opened to her ideas. Ayn Rand does not solve every problem and she is neither deity or menace. She's a brilliantly original thinker with a searing view on the evil that lurks underneath those posing to do a greater good. You cannot advance the human race without considering what she has to say. She invites scorn from those who misinterpret or who need to hide from the sunshine of truth.

I read this book thirty years ago. I thought it was excellent then.
Now it sounds long and preachy, droning on and on about its dogma continually.
It seems atheistic at its core and devoid of any grace, though it tells a good story with the leeches and parasites being exposed.
