> p.s. I used to read a lot of Anne Rice and Ayn Rand, but my tastes have really changed over the last five years or so, and I find them almost pretentious now. I read C.S. Lewis with my kids and Sharyn McCrumb before bed :-)
I know whatcha mean. Ayn Rand is a bit of a caracature(sp?) She never let one word of her books be edited, and boy could they have used editing. I liked the story in Atlas Shrugged though, putting aside the philosophy. I do think she did Orwell's 1984 thing better, before his book, with Anthem. I would suggest the Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann, (the new translation.)
