    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Overall

    I tend to look for classics, long long books, and thought this one would be a new fav... it's slow. it winds in and out and after 20 hours it still hasn't gone anywhere. It just drags and drags and drags. I like the concept of the story - but I can't bring myself to finish it.

    Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure.

    Prsilla says: "Really-REALLY Classic!"
    "Highly Entertaining"
    Overall

    Wonderful story that weaves in and out and ties all the loops at the end - you know - those stories that turn out to have way too many coincidences... but we love them anyway. While its hard to imagine anyone being able to pull off what he pulls off... without seeing his behind the scenes planning or work to make it happen... it's still an enjoyable tale of revenge.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Excellent Read - well paced"
    Overall

    Not my typical genre or something I would normally look for. Don't be put off by the fact that it does deal with racial topics - its a well written story that keeps you interested. The characters are vivid and all in all a book I enjoyed and recommend to friends.
