Renowned writer Ayn Rand presents this early novella, which tackles subjects that dominate her later works and offers her unique ideology on government, as well as society and humankind as a whole. Though Rand’s novella is certainly more of a straightforward narrative than much of her later work, narrator Cary Alan still must cut through the exposition to relate the story in its rawest form. Alan's voice is slightly monotone, but it does change slightly to suggest the characters’ underlying emotions. Ultimately, the message overrides the medium of this story, and Rand's prose is the true star while Alan's delivery serves to ensure a solid understanding of her ideas.
