    Story
    (3661)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    If you could sum up Atlas Shrugged in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, relevant, & lengthy


    What did you like best about this story?

    A clever, coherent defense of the benefits of capitalism in an engaging story.


    Any additional comments?

    Although written in 1957, the book seems more relevant today that it probably did in 1957. Some minor social norms have changed since the 50's, but this only adds to the interest of this story.

    However, be aware this is a long book. Sometimes the dialog is made up of short, rapid fire, back-and-forth conversations, but I guess that's what happens when you have 1,100 pages to fill.

    Don't be fooled by the recent movie. This is a very engaging story.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What did you love best about Killing Lincoln?

    I found the narration style of this book to be captivating. The descriptions of the last days of the civil war and the events leading up to the assassination gave me real insight into the thought process of the day.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    Mr. O'Reilly is an excellent speaker and his reading of his book was superb.
