Get atlas shrugged on audiobook. It took me a couple of weeks to get through it, but it was great. I don't think it would've been possible for me to read that thing as I'm a slow reader. I'll probably re-listen to it sometime this Spring/Summer.

I heard it on audio book

Theres so much thought in every conversation that I have to take my time to fully absorb it. I love the characters, especially the protagonists because I idealize their traits.

Totally agree with you! The

The Institute also had an article commemorating the 50th Anniversary of _Atlas Shrugged_: I've tried, but never was able to read it. I've read the Odyssey, the Illiad, Lord of the Rings and Silmarilian, even Focault's Pendulum (that was _hard_), but A.S. defeats me. Maybe when I'm older, and wiser...
