The Masterpiece

I am her fan so are millions of other, Atlas Shrugged is an application of the philosophy said in Fountain Head.
If Fountain head is great; then Atlas Shrugged is mesmerizing beauty; its exceptional. Author never keeps the content simple as she wants that only those who are committed to her work should be entitled to have the pleasure of understanding the content.

Facts:

In Fountain Head, the character of Howard Roak remains sketchy, some think that HR is not practical and some belief that he does value money. All those answers are given in complete detail in Atlas Shrugged.

This book needs patience, above average intellect and faith

Theme:

Its unconventional but its very much valid. PPl who can have brains wants to go on strike so that ppl who has less brain should understand their code of morals.
The story is intriguing and has a soul.

Pros:

The entire thought process about the kind of work you do will change, the value of being selfish will be redefined

You might get the best time while going through the last 200 pages

You will fall in love as in when Daggny Taggart's character will evolve.

Cons:

This book has serious side effects
There is no Daggny Taggart in the real world
After reading it you will be having hangover for at least a week, it might go beyond month
You wont find anything interesting after this

The work of a genius

I have read quite a few other books, by different authors. I have read Dan Brown, Paulo Coelho, Sidney Sheldon, books like Catch-22, etc.; and I have appreciated their writing style. But only when I read Ayn Rand did I feel how is it posible to write so well? How is she able to relate her philosophies to worldy things so that when she constructs a sentence, they complement each other perfectly. Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead are true masterpieces.

One may not agree completely with the philosophies, but it is always good to read them as they help us understand different view points, and in the process enrich our experience and help us come to our own conclusions. I give 5 star to each of these books.

Atlas shrugged is one of the most classic novels ever written. The story is riveting and the characters whose life one would covet to live . The philosophy conveyed is simple: you live for yourself.
While the book presents an oversimplified world it does convey the message effectively and is likely to have an everlasting impact on the reader.
Style is immensely engaging and the book truly casts a spell.

Style is immensely engaging and the book truly casts a spell.

Too simple a world has been presented, where all the bums and incompetent run the government and the best and ingenious ones are industrialists. US economy is falling apart and all the actions taken to prevent the same have only deteriorated the condition. Those who deserve have been robbed off all that was theirs for the betterment of the public, who are much negligent towards the gift.
John Galt, the perfect man fights for all his rights and steals all the genius and best ones away and world gives in. He builds a new world and decides to return to the original world only after the lights in new york go out.
He succeeds.
John is more like a god and therefore not that admirable, for its much more difficult to follow his ideals. Hank Rearden, another protagonist is much more lovable and admirable.

Read this book two years back and still remember every part of it.
As always quality of penguin books(signet is a project of penguin) is excellent.
It is a must read.

Ayn Rand: A Manifesto for Psychopaths

It has a fair claim to be the ugliest philosophy the post-war world has produced. Selfishness, it contends, is good, altruism evil, empathy and compassion are irrational and destructive. The poor deserve to die; the rich deserve unmediated power. It has already been tested, and has failed spectacularly and catastrophically. Yet the belief system constructed by Ayn Rand, who died 30 years ago today, has been more influential.

It has a fair claim to be the ugliest philosophy the post-war world has produced. Selfishness, it contends, is good, altruism evil, empathy and compassion are irrational and destructive. The poor deserve to die; the rich deserve unmediated power. It has already been tested, and has failed spectacularly and catastrophically. Yet the belief system constructed by Ayn Rand, who died 30 years ago today, has been more influential.

Rand's is the philosophy of the psychopath, a misanthropic fantasy of cruelty, revenge and greed. Yet, as Gary Weiss shows in his new book Ayn Rand Nation, she has become to the new right what Karl Marx once was to the left: a demigod at the head of a narcissistic cult.

If you want a pat on the back to be intolerant, selfish, greedy, egoistic and suffer a life of unending wants and misery then this book is just perfect.

Highly overrated book

This is one of those books whom people all around the world will recommend. But the truth is its not worth it. Basically its Rand's philosophy wrapped around a story. This book requires a lot of editing. 1/3rd of the book consists of sentences describing facial expressions of the characters. :)
Her philosophy consists of maxims and nothing more. Most of the things are ambiguous. The trouble with this kind of philosophy is you can take from it whatever you want and mold it according to your perspective. That's the reason why most people like this book because it contains half-baked philosophy.

Not just read it, lived it

This book will remain like a turning point in my life because it regenerated my interest in reading after 3-4 years. Ayn Rand considered it to be her Magnum Opus and I can't agree less with that. A very powerful book and a very well woven story. It made me wonder at times how can someone put word... (View complete review)

Only for broad minded! Not for prejudiced people!

It takes time to digest what Rand says, but it's a must read. It's not meant for narrow minded people though. To understand what she gotta say, one must leave all inhibitions and ideas behind (View complete review)

Ayn Rand!!!

Bought this book after hearing a lot about it. Really a nice read for lovers of philosophy but I have one suggestion as this one is a large font edition so its' quite heavy which is making me uneasy while am reading it, it should be divided into 3-4 parts for readers' comfort and yes paper qualit...
