I thought people were just lying about this book being a massive piece of shit because they disagreed politically with Ayn Rand personally. Oh how fucking wrong I was, how the fuck can someone who wrote The Fountainhead which is way way way WAY better than this PIECE OF SHIT release something THIS BAD. One of the characters just literally went on a 50 page rant out of nowhere in the middle of conversation. Who the fuck would recommend this.

There's literally some libertarian/conservative think tank whose major charity/"humanitarian" action is giving high school and college students free copies of Atlas Shrugged. I strongly suspect it's one of the books that people most commonly pretend to have read. Ayn Rand was a political illiterate. There are better libertarian philosophers, like Robert Nozick. There are better conservative philosophers, like Roger Scruton. There are better psychotic individualists, like Max Stirner. There are better hard-asses, like Nietzsche.

One of my friends was going on and on about that book because I took a couple of philosophy classes in quarantine. I started it and it felt like I was digging through a dumpster of words looking for moldy cabbages. Read up on the author and background to it and decided to put it down.

Turns out my friend never read it either. They listened to a poets that talked about how great it was.

I got this book. It's so fucking fat, and everyone says it is shit. Every day I look at it. Waste of money

It's an awesome book if you're heavy into metallurgy, trains, agalmatophilia with a heavy side order of rape fantasies, weirdly distorted Aristotelean ethics and gilded age capitalism. Otherwise it is a waste of trees.

I loved The Fountainhead, which is the best book written in Dostoevsky's style that wasn't Dosty himself.

I've been wary of Atlas Shrugged because it's such a boomer right-winger medallion, the one fiction book they seem to ever read beyond John Grisham bullshit. Glad I can safely avoid. I've heard it's trash

Check this out. It's by an actual economist and it's shorter. Better politics, too

I first read it in 12th grade and had no idea what I was reading.
Reread it again when I was 25 and started to understand it.
At 33 I finally read it all the way through and it is a fantastic book.
However, when a person reads it and is unable to extrapolate the story, they become political or philosophical instead of becoming a productive person, which is ironic.

It's nauseating and written from the perspective of a fake intellectual looking for ways to glorify greed.

It's only appealing to similar-thinking anarcho-capitlists who circlejerk over the book while they look down on homeless people and such as "unproductive".

I'd go to a nursing home if I wanted to hear a bunch of propaganda for worshipping the rich.

It's a shit book and the message is not even remotely profound. It's extreme individualist politics with an extremely shitty story built around it.

You're entitled to your opinion, just know that everyone thinks you're an idiot and can probably guess with 90% accuracy your views on just about any subject.

We’re talking about Ayn Rand here fella lol. Feel free to like Objectivism, but don’t pretend like Rand was some philosophical luminary
