The answer is the astonishing story of a man who said he would stop the motor of the world-and did. 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.
Part mystery, part thriller, part philosophical inquiry, part volatile love affair, Atlas Shrugged is the book that confirmed Ayn Rand as one of the most popular novelist and most respected thinkers of the 20th century. What a great book! The book tells why being productive is the most important contribution man can make to humanity!
Wonderfully and entertainingly read! Highly recommend this book! Book Rating George S. I have always wanted to read this book, but could never find the time to finish it because of my work and long commute. Thank you Audiobooks! The narrator was exceptional!
As with many abridged versions, the scenes leading up to a plot point are sometimes taken away, or redacted too much, as was the case here. But that is why we have sparknotes. If you want to at least get the juicy details and full plot summary, and character struggles from this book, while not having the extra fluff that could make you doze off, listen to this abridged version.
At some point, I will listen or read the full version. But with my being too busy, and always wanting to read this book, I am glad I chose this abridged version with an exceptional narrator.
Book Rating Anonymous One of my favorite all time books! It was great to have it read to me as I envisioned the world of Dagny! Everyone should read it at least once in their life time!!! So, I decided to try the abridged version. Big mistake! I liked the material, but about halfway through it there was a big leap in the plot progression that threw me.
I had to stop listening and decided to listen to the unabridged version instead Book Rating Anonymous This book is full of exaggeration, and gives the leaders - 4 executives and one engineer much more credit than they deserve. This book was published in , during the great fear of communism, and the story reflects it. The government takes over and people are paid according to need not ability and productivity is restricted so that output must be equal for all companies.
Basically, the author has taken the effort to help those in need to the extreme, and responds by taking greed to the extreme as the leaders form their own group and take a pledge never to give or to live for someone else. These leaders get injured and tortured, but choose not to feel pain - yeah right! I found myself rolling my eyes much of the time, but somehow got through it.
Book Rating Anonymous The concept of the book is interesting, but the pace dragged terribly through the middle. When he read the dialog of the antagonists, he adopted a wheedling or nasal or strange accents. He laid it on too thick with the dramatics and detracted from the story. Book Rating Anonymous The premise of this book is not true. Have we not learned from recent corporation failures? This book also makes everyone else totally inept idiots. Book Rating nittany This book was very well narrated, easy to follow, and flowed very well.
I have become an Ayn Rand fan from this book. Book Rating This should be required for every Obama follower, maybe Obama himself. Book Rating.
