Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand)

by Incandescence

Simply an amazing book chronicling the ups and downs of man in today's society. I wouldn't suggest it to immature people, but that's your decision. Personally, it takes a mature reader to truly understand the underlying message in the book and to understand some of the innuendos Rand uses.

It's a work of fiction. The Fountainhead is also excellent. In fact, all of her books are good. The best was For The New Intellectual: The Virtue of Selfishness. Personally, I'm an objectivist, though, so that might influence my thinking. :grins:

Was it supposed to be like fiction or what? I've never heard of it before.

You can't blame the writer for what the characters say.
