    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.

    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.

    Spotted a big bright yellow thing in the sky on the weekend. It hurt to look at it.
    It's gone now though.
