    I'm thinking about reading this book as I've heard great things. Has anyone read it and if so is it as great as it sounds?

    Even if you don't agree with the philosophy, it's a must read!

    Didn't enjoy - would have benefited from rather a severe editing.

    Pretty much in agreement with this chap about it

    A really interesting point of view. Thanks for the link, I appreciate it.

    'Anthem' is a (mercifully) short story that I enjoyed which encapsulates some of her thinking... also inspired the prog rock band Rush's album '2112' >_>

    So it's not that she couldn't write, perhaps she got carried away with the idea of producing her magnum opus?? Atlas shrugged though is full of boring, implausible one dimensional characters making tedious repetitive speeches at each other... and a rubbish sex scene... oh and the plot doesn't really make sense.

    apparently it's an insanely long book, but if that's your thing, knock yourself out
