    Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa.

And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice.

    "Inspirational"
    Overall

    An inspiring yet somewhat fanciful story that has tedious stretches

    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.

    Robert says: "Over before you know it"
    "more philosophy than story"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed The fountainhead but was disappointed in this book.
    The characters go off to many times on monologues to present her philosophy.
