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.… (més)

    The Fountainhead de 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.… (més)

    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.

At approximately 1100 pages Atlas Shrugged is lengthy. This is mostly due to Ayn Rands often tedious and repetitive way of telling her story. Nevertheless it is an interesting and worthwhile read if you are prepared to actually think about what you are reading and not just absorb it blindly.

The authors point of view is a rather one-dimensional one and it is up to the reader to constantly evaluate and reconsider the presented ideas. I did and while her model of objectivism does make sense to a certain extent, its shortfalls are also clearly visible - to those, who want to see.

I recommend this book to readers with a solid understanding of life, economics and socialism. Others - especially at the age of 17-20 - might get overwhelmed by the constantly repeated main theme, which would be confusing if not dangerous. ( )

I can see why many people say this is a must read book. Yes there are parts that drag on. Yes I don't entirely believe in Rand's philosophical take on life. But that doesn't mean that this won't be a book that I think about for years to come. ( )

My full thoughts and a review of the Folio Society edition of this book are on my blog: https://ubiquitousbooks.wordpress.com/2021/01/16/atlas-shrugged/

Atlas Shrugged is nothing if not divisive. Many reviewers write-off the novel’s characters as “cardboard cut-outs”—caricatures of the arch-capitalist and proto-socialist that it sets on a collision course. I think it’s a fair criticism, albeit one that rather misses the point. Ayn Rand’s approach to presenting her philosophy of objectivism is hardly subtle and the book’s protagonists should be viewed as pedagogical instruments rather than characters in the conventional sense, at which point their stark stylisation makes a lot more sense. Rand’s morality tale asks: are you a looter or a producer? It correctly paints socialism as a dangerous and immiserising force, but, in so doing, it over-eggs the virtue of laissez-fair radical individualism. As a result, the book ends up alienating those it most needs to convince.

If, however, you are willing to see through the philosophy and embrace this as a novel—industrial-political-philosophical-romantic melodrama—its characters can be enjoyed as a fun, if not too serious part of the package. Slightly harder to accept is the uneven pacing. Although the book starts out with all the trappings of a fairly fast-paced thriller, we eventually get mired in Rand’s philosophical exposition—developed, in the best Platonic tradition, through a sequence of lengthy dialogues and monologues. These drag the last two thirds of the book into tedium and the month or two you spend with Rand will likely extend beyond its welcome. Still, there’s definitely something epic about this novel and it’s hard to feel a sense of regret for having embarked upon its journey. ( )

"Despite laborious monologues, the reader will stay with this strange world, borne along by its story and eloquent flow of ideas."
afegit per GYKM | editaNewsweek
 
"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!'"
