    Story
    (358)

    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."
    "Beware of Utopia"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Atlas Shrugged to be better than the print version?

    The audio verson flows smoothly and speeds up the story significantly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dagne Taggart - she doesn't give up. She sees and understands the problems associated with the the utopian view espoused by her brother and others, and is still able to overcome many of the obstacles placed in her path.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "How to Go From Happiness to Misery in a Few Easy Steps"


    Any additional comments?

    This is a terrific book, one that I should have read many years ago, but didn't. It has many parallels to our world today and is a lesson for those who practice 'group-think'.
