    Ewww Ayn Rand, I feel sorry for you!

    This is how I would start your report, "Ayn Rand was a cold heart-less *****"....I would actually end it there as well...

    And so would I. I found the book boring and tendentious. Just a canvas so Ayn Rand could harp away on her cold-hearted, selfish political philosophy. Not much of a story. One dimensional, wooden, steroetyped characters. Strident, rather than subtle. It has been 20 some years since I read it.

    Although i don't agree with all the tenets of her "objectivist" philosphy, Atlas Shrugged is one of the finest works of fiction i've ever read.
