Did you like Atlas Shrugged?
The movie that just came out- if you saw it, what did you think? I didn't read the book, but I pretty much thought the movie sucked. Did you see any of the liberal ideas that were supposed to be there?
No. I found it an incredibly long winded story and boring story. I went on to read all of Ayn Rand's books from Fountainhead through to Anthem. I found every single one of them boring as all hell. Personally, I think the writers of the golden period of science fiction, i.e. Asimov, Heinlein, Niven, etc. did a helluve lot better job at dissecting the social and political milieu.
I did. I read it in high school. Although I find Rand's politics somewhat distasteful, I still enjoyed the book.
