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.
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.
Thank You Smiley I am reading a Russian book....by Ayn Rand. But I intend to read War and Peace sometime soon. But to fill the time in between, I think I will rent one of Pat Buchanans many books from the library.

Or you could, you know, read something good.
I could always read 50 Shades of Gray when my mom is done with it. Tongue

I am reading Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail of '72, by Hunter Thompson, and Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead." I have not gotten farther than 30 pages into the Fountainhead, but I am loving Fear and Loathing.

Started Six Days of War. I picked it up for fifty cents at the local Catholic Churches annual fair/rummage sale. My friends grandpa sold it to me, and said it was a good read.

Finished the Oddessa File in a couple of days. My Uncle is a trucker and we ended up at the Tropicana Plant in Bradenton for four hours on Thursday, abd six hours on Friday, so I got through it fast.

I just started Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom." So far so good. Just finished Escape from Camp 14 about a guy who escaped North Korea's worst gulag.

Taking a break from The Road to Serfdom (very repetitive book) to read the 48 Laws of Power.
