One of my goals has been to read (or listen to) the top 100 all-time best books as chosen by 'real' people. I listen to most of the books while walking my amazingly cute dog or doing mundane tasks like laundry or cleaning. I just finished listening to Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. In my never to be humble opinion, that is one of the worst group of characters I have ever come across. Maybe it was because most professed to be atheists or at the very least, because Rand was. The characters had such a negative vision of life, friendship, love and just about anything else mentioned. They could be swayed by the mere suggestion of an idea. This book was written before anti-depressants. Too bad there wasn't a communal bowl of Prozac available. Maybe, I found it so unbelievable because I have such strong opinions. I don't tolerate wishy-washy folks very well. After listening to that I needed something I can enjoy. I'm listening to Vince Flynn's American Assassin. Mitch Rapp would have shot all the Rand characters just to get them to shut up!
