Although a lot of works across all media are exist as political objects, they also exist in the realm of aesthetic and feeling. I'm going to try to read it from the aesthetic and emotional side, rather than a political perspective. Everything goes down better with whiskey.

You might be surprised. Although I didn't buy into Objectivism, I remember enjoying the novel itself. Then again, that was years ago. Try to keep an open mind. At the very least you'll be reading a very influential piece of literature.

Me too! Never understood a lot of the hate for her writing ability. Steampunk I guess.

Well, getting ahead of ourselves a little bit, her writing is EXTREMELY pretentious.
