folio I love your books but please shut the fuck up for gods sake
@douglasfur how was it?
also to be fair, I can absolutely see myself doing it for the bit with friends in voice chat, reading it out loud
@RussellsBarbershopQuartet @kiosk @douglasfur i read the fountainhead but i had to skip like, 200 pages lol. the only thought i still remember (this was 2012) was "huh this guy is kinda cool, finally a likeable character" to the gay socialist character, and then it turns out he's the villain of the piece, lol
@kiosk I got forty-ish pages in and gave up
it is heroes and strawmen all the way down
Ayn Rand didn't write a novel or narrative so much as she wrote her elaborate thought process on Great Individuals Doing The Thing
@kiosk my copy of Atlas Shrugged is a used paperback that lives on its own shelf in the garage; I cannot imagine buying a copy that is Nice
@kiosk I curate a lot of Bad Fiction because I truly love a book that is not great in the right way
Atlas Shrugged is not great in a way that is pathological and hates the idea of cooperation
@RussellsBarbershopQuartet VITAL to anyone who wants to understand the bad side of politics, do you want to be up to date on current politics melissa, DO YOU
@kiosk "A vital read for anyone who wants to understand the current state of global politics and why so many racists view this terrible book filled with deranged political beliefs as being a model they should live by."
