I will say this upfront, I don't agree with Rand's ideology, at least what I see as a very rigid portrayal of what and who is right and wrong in this book.
Setting that aside, I enjoyed reading Atlas Shrugged
, despite what I consider serious flaws in plot, dialogue, and character development. Her prose has been described as dense and wooden, but I would even say that she is under-appreciated as a stylist because of her very visual descriptions of scenery.
I think Atlas Shrugged
is worth reading at least once, to see what the fuss is about and be able to discuss it intelligently. I plan on reading it again.
