Just finished Atlas Shrugged. Amazing book Smiley

no.  say whatever you want about the 'theme', she is a formally terrible writer.  read some real literature.
I thought her writing was "ok". Keep in mind, I am only a 9th grader who has not read anything really amazing besides a few Orwell books and a bunch of Ron Paul/Barry Goldwater books.

Seriously, my friend, read some George Eliot or Alexander Pushkin and you'll realize that Atlas Shrugged is an egregious waste of paper. Take my word for it: I've read Atlas Shrugged three times.

bought my first Eric Hobsbawm book yesterday, his most recent.  though I had pirated .pdfs of about three others.
You naughty boy...

ah, I was just about to tell you how that sounded creepy, and I only like it when women talk to me like that, and in clicking through to your profile I discovered that you were a woman.  keep it up!
Way to not come off as creepy, Bro Tweed.

And I'm reading Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett, though I'm supposed to be reading The Importance of Being Earnest.  School; bleh.

The Lady and the Peacock: The Life of Aung Sang Suu Kyi

I was thinking of getting that, is it worthwhile?

For me who had absolutely no clue who this woman was, absolutely. It's a bit light on the history of Burma 1947-1988, however.

Managed to get my hands on a signed copy of The Speech by Bernie Sanders at some book store over in Vero Beach, FL. It's actually pretty good; some bits I do disagree with, but the man can write, or speak, as it is.

As of right now I am reading The Big Book of Porn: A Penetrating Look at the World of Dirty Movies by Seth Grahame-Smith. It is the only book I do not feel comfortable reading at work. Not that it has any "dirty pictures" but I do not want the looks it would attract.

I will consider it Wink I just read Ayn Rands Anthem in a day, and it was pretty good. Its only 90 something pages, and of course, the rest of my English class is complaining about it. I can't wait to see them try and read Atlas Shrugged Tongue

Sanchez, you're a smart guy; you really do need to get some good literature into you. If you were able to get through Atlas Shrugged you should be able to get through at least some of the shorter Dostoevsky, for one thing, or Tanizaki. You also might like Ayako Miura, particularly Freezing Point.

The Iron Heel by Jack London. I highly recommend it to all of you as there are many parallels to what is going on right now in spite of its being published over a century ago.

What would you suggest? Also, what's wrong with Krugman? He's the most the prominent anti-third way pundit out there at the moment and he also happens to be a brilliant economist.

To be honest, though, there's really no excuse for reading Fuckuyama.

Not true; you need to read him to get a piece of paper.
