1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 11 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Atlas Shrugged (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
In essence, Atlas Shrugged is an excruciatingly long and boring story written by a pseudo-philosopher in an attempt to novelise her very own faux-theory of "objectivism". The vomit inducing subtext - "rich people are better than poor people" - is delivered as subtly as a firm kick in the gentleman region. I failed to find a single character in the book even close to amiable. In all honesty I think I'd prefer to live the rest of my days in a Soviet Union prison than to have to associate with any of the book's so-called protagonists.

P. Nelson says:
So you read the book then, right? You read the bit about how all the villains are businessmen and politicians... right? So how do you drawn the conclusion she was talking about how rich people are bad?

Uhm, did you even read the review P. Nelson, it's not that long a review and with one main point, and yet you seem to have got it the wrong way around. I notice you have comments like this next to most of the negative reviews for this book and not once do you quantify any of your arguments with actual discussion or evidence to back up your opinion.
