Well, this book is becoming quite a chore. I was initially drawn to the book because of large number of its quotes sprinkled throughout the net.
I find the characters cold and one dimensional. The characters seem to be a vehicle for Rand's political views, which on the face of it seem to have some merit, but recent events have proven laissez faire market forces immoral and prone to implode.
I haven't even got to John Galt yet.
I've started on Watership Down. I might return to Atlas Shrugged, but not before I finish WD.
I caught the film on Channel 5 the other day.
What a load of ar$e.
The list is: Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse Dune.
I feel obliged to finish a series once I start it and it was a real chore by the end. Such a shame as Dune is fantastic.
Oh and there are some prequels written by his son but I didn't go near those.
Just the first one.
I understand that some of the sequels are awful.
Which one should I read next?
Do you mean you finished the first book or the whole series?
And I agree Dune is great but I feel the quality of the series declines.
Thanks. As it happened it turned out really well. That nervous energy of not knowing what's going on seemed to help.
ha, thats why open mic nights exist....
good luck, i'm sure it'll all come together in the end
Was it Bananaman by any chance?
Spotted a big bright yellow thing in the sky on the weekend. It hurt to look at it.
It's gone now though.
