Atlas Shrugged (Paperback)
|The story of a man who said he would stop the motor of the world--and did. This novel is the setting for the author's philosophy of Objectivism.|
Rand's 1200-page novel is a hymn of praise to the concept of rugged individualism, personified in John Galt. This polemic for Rand's philosophy of "rational self-interest" has been a steady seller since it was published in 1957.
Customer Reviews of Atlas Shrugged
This Was a very good plot and discussion of what happens when the "takers" reach critical mass. amazing it was written so many years ago. Like 1984 & Animal Farm, it wasn't supposed to be an instruction manual for the people in DC. You need to read the book to get a perspective of Ayn Rand's insight regarding the direction of our world based on the mindset & integrity of the movers and shakers of the world
Who am I to review Ayn Rand's classic novel when it so accurately describes so much of what is coming to pass. That she painted such an accurate picture is amazing, to say the least! I have begun to use characters and quotes from the book in my routine email and Twitter messages when I see that it is appropriate. I acquired the first two movies, and have watched them several times, along with my family. Can't wait for the third! My son intends to read the book after school's out for the summer. He'll be 16 soon. This is far more than a good novel, and should be required reading for all US citizens before they can vote and/or run for elective office.
Book about the meaning and goal of one's life11/10/2002
Philosophy meets fiction in a remarkable way. This is by far the most invigorating book I have read. It proclaims independence of thought, mind and self-reliance as a philosophy. The book is so engrossing, I couldn't put it down for a week. I would actually skip work early just to get home to read and immerse in Ayn Rand's polarized turbulent world. Very awesome, dynamic and thought provoking book. If you need motivation or are looking for the meaning of your life, read this book, you might just find it.
