    As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of Objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

    Shawn Levasseur says: "Edward Hermann's masterful performance."
    "I gave this book the lowest possible rating"

    Story

    Atlas Shrugged is full of stereotypes and over-simplifications. Rand continually displays her extreme bias towards capitalism, and distain for any sort of regulation. It makes sense to me that a person with her particular background would hold the opinions discussed in Atlas Shrugged, but I really don't see how any rational westerner can take this book seriously. Any comparisons to modern life are superficial at best, and completely unavoidable. Rand's ideas are so over-generalized that you can find comparisons everywhere you look but never manage to find any deeper meaning. I really wanted this book to mean something, but it's shallow.
