    Awesome read! I couldn't put the book down.

    This is the first book that I read of Ayn Rand and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this to my friends.

    Atlas shrugged, so do I

    What to say? Who is john Galt? I think keeping in mind the time and place it was written and the background of a clearly brilliant author helps to understand the undertones of this novel. I think the readers digest version would have done away with much of the harlequin romance type bits and focused more on the plot which really is timeless...I'm still conflicted as to whether this was a dystopian or utopian fiction...I guess it depends on who's point of view you relate to. I'm glad I read this book but damn I'm glad I'm done...time to go back to some lighter fare for a month or so...but I'm really glad I read it.

    Atlas Shrugged

    The ideas, concepts, and philosophy of the story are different The concepts and philosophy of the story are disturbing. The book is a long, slow read, but one you can't just leave. I was stunned to see so many correlations to what is going on today! I only hope ..."Who is John Galt, now?" Every young adult should be reading this book.

    A MUST READ

    I rarely read fictional bo0ks but this was really philopsophical pondering between benefits of communism and capitalism. Well written even though time to time advancing slow due to excessive detailing in early chapters. If you hang on the story is worth it and well explains why our society is what it is today. Is there any other way for us, is a good follow up question, you are left thinking after this masterpiece.

    Philosophy first, story second

    For anyone who doesn't already know, the main point of the novel was always to demonstrate the philosophy of Objectivism; Rand's notes mention that it elaborates on the points she brought up in The Fountainhead. So with that in mind, it's an excellent story, and you either like the philosophy or hate it; I happen to like it. What's keeping me from giving it 5 stars is just Rand's writing style. Brevity is apparently not a very big part of Objectivism; towards the end of the book, a character delivers a monologue that consumes an entire chapter, and later acknowledges that he had been speaking for three hours straight.
