    The comments in this thread are depressing.

    While I agree that ayn rand's political views are loathesome, that she herself was a hypocrite and her books have been adopted by loathesome political trolls, I do not believe her books are entirely withou merit.

    I enjoyed the books as fantasy/alternative universe type creations.

    With that said his diary would have been better off being published to readers and book lovers to avoid the knee jerk piling on...
