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 have to fight his battle not against his enemys but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas shrugged" is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which 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 have never heard Capitalism defended in other than technical terms.… (mere)

    Kun den stærke er fri. Overs. efter den amerikanske originaludg. The fountainhead af Karina Winfeld-Hansen af Ayn Rand (PghDragonMan, bigtent21, thebookpile)
    PghDragonMan: This earlier work is more lyrical and is a milder, and more condensed, version of the philosophy expressed by this work.
    bigtent21: "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" are becoming more relevant as we head into 2009. Large Government Buyouts and Regulation are the scourge of Atlas Shrugged and the outright sponsoring of mediocrity predominates The Fountainhead. Rand can be long-winded, but these two books are must reads regardless of your own personal beliefs.… (mere)

    Essays on Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged af Robert Mayhew (mcaution)

    Juliette af Marquis de Sade (kswolff)
    kswolff: Like "Atlas Shrugged," it is an aspirational epic about a strong-minded, pleasure-seeking woman triumphing over adversity and the herd mentality of her fellow humans. Sade, like Rand, was also a strident atheist given to writing characters give long speeches.

Formative when I was younger, embarrassing now to have liked so much. ( )

A proper review is coming… too many thoughts about this book to write right now.

[Update: lacking the time, or want, to write that review, see this comment (in Spanish) for a very concise opinion about the book.] ( )

Only a moron would think there's anything to this. Not surprisingly it's a big hit with Republicans. ( )

After all the recent hubbub about Ayn Rand's works being an inspiration for Paul Ryan's foray into politics, I decided I should probably at least attempt to read "Atlas Shrugged" in the interest of being informed. I'd always been a little intimidated by the sheer size of Rand's works, and it took a full three weeks to plod through this one; by the time I got to John Galt's speech near the end, I was skimming in a desperate attempt to find the end before getting bogged down.

Do I agree with Rand's philosophy as promoted by Galt throughout the novel? Not necessarily. Do I think that her perspective on being "given a job" as spoken through Hank Rearden to Phillip Rearden has merit? In relation to today's struggling job market and influx of overly educated, non-technical graduates, it is completely applicable. Do I believe that poor people are poor because they are lazy and undeserving? No, but I agree that the systems we have for helping the poor are faulty and tend towards encouraging inaction and dependence.

This book did make me think considerably about my own conservative rearing and about why I have started to shift away from that ideology. I found Dagny as a character to be fascinating -- the businesswoman and how she was treated by the men in her world throughout the novel. I'm not sure I would jump to recommend this book to anyone due to the high pagecount and the sometimes repetitious and overly verbose writing, but it was certainly an interesting look into an ideology that is being reflected (frighteningly) in today's politics.

I hated this book. Partly because I had to read it and write a college admission essay on it, but also because I just couldn't get into it. ( )

"Despite laborious monologues, the reader will stay with this strange world, borne along by its story and eloquent flow of ideas."
tilføjet af GYKM | RedigerNewsweek
 
"to warn contemporary America against abandoning its factories, neglecting technological progress and abolishing the profit motive seems a little like admonishing water against running uphill."
 
"inspired" and "monumental" but "(t)o the Christian, everyone is redeemable. But Ayn Rand’s ethical hardness may repel those who most need her message: that charity should be voluntary…. She should not have tried to rewrite the Sermon on the Mount."
 
Atlas Shrugged represents a watershed in the history of world literature.

"We struggle to be just. For we cannot help feeling at least a sympathetic pain before the sheer labor, discipline, and patient craftsmanship that went to making this mountain of words. But the words keep shouting us down. In the end that tone dominates. But it should be its own antidote, warning us that anything it shouts is best taken with the usual reservations with which we might sip a patent medicine. Some may like the flavor. In any case, the brew is probably without lasting ill effects. But it is not a cure for anything. Nor would we, ordinarily, place much confidence in the diagnosis of a doctor who supposes that the Hippocratic Oath is a kind of curse."

"remarkably silly" and "can be called a novel only by devaluing the term" ... "From almost any page of Atlas Shrugged, a voice can be heard, from painful necessity, commanding: 'To the gas chambers — go!'"
