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)

Atlas Shrugged de Ayn Rand (1957)

  1. 154
    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)
  2. 72
    La Riquesa de les nacions : indagació sobre la naturalesa i les causes de Adam Smith (thebookpile)
  3. 73
    Essays on Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged de Robert Mayhew (mcaution)
    mcaution: Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Rand's magnum opus through this unique collection of scholarly criticism. See why after 50+ years in print it's selling better than when it was first published.
  4. 41
    Cami de servitud de F. A. Hayek (ljessen)
  5. 74
    The Ayn Rand Cult de Jeff Walker (bertilak)
  6. 63
    The Dispossessed de Ursula K. Le Guin (lauranav)
  7. 00
    Wiseguy de Nicholas Pileggi (kswolff)
    kswolff: Henry Hill, like Dagny Taggart, uses ingenuity and skill to avoid his income getting taxed by repressive moocher FBI agents and Narcs.
  8. 11
    Progress de Charles Stampul (PeerlessPress)
  9. 00
    The Probability Broach de L. Neil Smith (fulner)
    fulner: The probably broach is like Atlas Shrugged meets inter-dimensional time travel.
  10. 00
    Blood Republic de James Duncan (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: If you love books that try to push the envelope of philosophical thought, but do it within a rapid-fire plot, this is the book for you.
  11. 11
    The God of the Machine de Isabel Paterson (bertilak)
  12. 01
    Ten Rallies de Pasquin (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: Do the needs of the many outweigh the value of the individual?
  13. 12
    Faith of the Fallen de Terry Goodkind (Cecrow)
    Cecrow: Fans of both Ayn Rand and the fantasy genre will find affirmation in Goodkind's series, notably beginning with this entry.
  14. 23
    Metafisica de Aristoteles de Aristotle (thebookpile)
  15. 23
    L'any del diluvi de Margaret Atwood (rratzlaff)
  16. 01
    The Leopard's Spots de Thomas Dixon Jr. (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: Both of these books are famous for being controversial, and are as hated by their detractors as they are loved by their fans. They also both have a long winded speech by a character who starts off not being a real part of the story and ends up being the full protagonist.… (més)
  17. 23
    Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right de Jennifer Burns (szarka)
  18. 03
    Juliette de 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.

A staggering portrait of emptiness. If only someone had remembered to tell the author.

Atlas Shrugged is breathtaking empty. Devoid of morality, depleted of literary skill, deprived of sensible plot, deserted of dialogue. Philosophy textbooks disguised as novels are rarely appealing, but especially not when the underlying philosophy is so absurd. Like much throat-slitting libertarianism (which Rand chose to call "objectivism"), the views make minimal sense in regard to their actions, but make no sense whatsoever in regard to the consequences of those actions. Take a few logical steps down the line and see what kind of world you'll end up in if you follow these instructions.

(If you're reading this on the cusp of the 2020s, you won't have to do too much guessing; Rand's principles underwrite some of our most prominent world politicians and thinkers.)

Run. Take your children and your pets, grab that wad of cash from under grandma's mattress, and head for the hills. A world awaits you there of kindness and compassion, and - for that matter - genuine literature. Maybe you'll enjoy [a:Lawrence Durrell|8166|Lawrence Durrell|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1463722118p2/8166.jpg] or [a:Sally Rooney|15860970|Sally Rooney|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1534007127p2/15860970.jpg]? Perhaps you're a [a:Toni Morrison|3534|Toni Morrison|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1494211316p2/3534.jpg] type, a [a:Kazuo Ishiguro|4280|Kazuo Ishiguro|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1424906625p2/4280.jpg] acolyte, mad for [a:John Barth|8113|John Barth|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1222685060p2/8113.jpg] or eager for [a:George Eliot|173|George Eliot|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1596202587p2/173.jpg]. Whatever you choose, it's got to be better than this. As Robinson Jeffers famously said, "when the cities lie at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains". ( )

An exhaustive, mechanical glorification of selfishness that the author purports to be wholly original while owing everything to Emersonian self-reliance (Rand does credit Aristotle for his logic, even though that system—namely the syllogism—was debunked some time ago). Still, there’s some merit, which I plan to address from my reading notes (at some point). The 60-page monologue from a pivotal character sets forth Rand’s philosophy at the end of the book, but I am going to check out her [b:Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology|154141|Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology|Ayn Rand|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1347315544s/154141.jpg|1711521] soon.

A monolithic text on libertarian-ism written as a dystopian novel set in the 1950s. It's written from an idealist perspective where the author sets up her characters to be able to live by these ideals in a very black and white way. Personally, I think life is far more grey-scale than this and she fails to explain how such a society cares for those who cannot care for themselves. On the positive side she does raise some interesting points and does succeed in describing how corruption and social welfare idealism can be counter productive. I think the book would have been significantly more meaningful if it was less long winded. ( )

This is Ayn Rand's epic. Within it, she preaches. A lot. Entire chapters are dedicated to telling you why Objectivism is awesome.

There's a plot in there somewhere and even a crack at Robin Hood (which was hilarious) but in reality, this is a philosophy book. The characters are being driven and molded around a philosophic statement, and are therefore uninteresting and one-dimensional.

As a novel, it fails. However, If you want to learn about Objectivism this wouldn't a bad place to start. ( )

"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!'"
