|Did not finish it, but here is what I thought of it before I quit. Hank Rearden can be a jerk, but his family is a bunch of jackasses.
Orren Boyle is an idiot. Plus how can he appear on the scene from nowhere five years ago, but then a few paragraphs later state “We’ve been improving steel rails for generations…”

Don’t even get me started on the “rooftop bar” that is like a cellar and though it is on the rooftop, you have to go down a flight of stairs. And there are cracks in the building’s architecture that let in just enough light. Something is wrong there.
I quit when I got to the author calling a man “noble” for enduring a childhood of abuse. I struggled just to get through the measly 68 pages I did make it through and I’m done.
