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. It seems to be one of those modern classics which everybody should read.
Perhaps it is, but I find the characters cold and one dimensional. They 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.
