Am I brain-dead?
I have been trying to read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” for quite a while, but my progress is painfully slow.
Is this normal?
The copy I have has 1,069 pages, and each page is dense with small type. I think this part of the problem. The text is really small.
However, it is also a slow read. It isn’t a face-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Is that how other people see it?
I wanted to read the book because I know it is famous, and the idea that it is a philosophical manifesto intrigues me.
But, I am struggling. I like the story so far, but really getting into it is taking a lot longer than I expected.
So, do any of you out there have any advice? Is it a good enough book to push through?
Any thoughts on the matter would be much appreciated.
