    I never read it as a kid, but I tried to read it a couple years ago (in my early 40s) and couldn't make it a few pages before I was teetering between bored and disgusted.

    Thanks for this analysis!  Now I know why my dad loves Rand - he is the perfect synthesis of the comic book guy and Prof Frink.  It all makes sense now!

    I'm also rec'ing this because you've pointed me in the direction of a Vonnegut novel that I've never read!  I thought I had read 'em all.  I'm in total agreement that Vonnegut and Orwell are fantastic authors - I love everything I've ever read by both.

    So - thanks!

    Join us in the Grieving Room on Monday evenings to discuss mourning and loss.
