|I have a desire to read some classic works of literature (or at least hear them read to me). I figure maybe my teenage mind wasn't ready to accept the brilliance contained in the pages of Great Expectations and Moby Dick when I was forced to read them in high school.
I recently downloaded the audiobook version of Atlas Shrugged. I listened to the first few hours of it (I think it goes on for about 14,000 hours) and I just wasn't captivated enough to continue listening to it. I understood the story, I learned about the characters, but something still didn't get through to me. I realize this book is a little heavy on the artistic aspect of literature, what with the 10-minute long descriptions of peoples' faces and fictional corporate history. I'm just not interested enough to continue listening.
I guess the classics won't ever appeal to me. They sucked when I was 15 and they still suck 10 years later. So much for growing up. #entertainment
