Synopsis

Published in 1957, "Atlas Shrugged" was Ayn Rand's greatest achievement and last work of fiction. In this novel, she dramatizes her unique philosophy through an intellectual mystery story that integrates ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics, and sex. Set in a near-future U.S.A. whose economy is collapsing as a result of the mysterious disappearance of leading innovators and industrialists, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life - from the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy to the great steel industrialist who does not know that he is working for his own destruction to the philosopher who becomes a pirate to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad to the lowest track worker in her train tunnels. Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, "Atlas Shrugged" is a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she achieved spectacular and enduring success. Through her novels and nonfiction writings, which express her unique philosophy, Objectivism, Rand maintains a lasting influence on popular thought.

Format: Taschenbuch
Ayn Rand's magnum opus is definitely worth a read. A word of warning: this is not a typical novel. Be prepared for a world-view that you have not seen anywhere else. As you can see from the reviews below, Ms. Rand is loved--and hated--by many. My advice to anyone about to dive into her works: read it critically, but with an open mind. Let yourself be drawn into her fictional universe and exalt in the struggles and triumphs of her characters. Do not, however, assume that because Ayn Rand said it, it must be true. Do not let yourself enter the personality cult that has been constructed around her by Peikoff & Co. Above all keep in mind--despite what she and her cult followers say--her philosophy is merely an outline with many incomplete technical areas. That does not mean what she has to say isn't worthwhile--it IS!--but that you will need to work at it to integrate the good things that Rand has to say with your own practical experience. What's the book about? Well, to boil it all down (and not give too much away) it begins as the story of a woman who runs a railroad company, struggling to keep her company prosperous in a dark and uncertain time. There is much, much more to the book than this...but this is how it begins. I only give the book four stars because it was quite long and, frankly, at times it was plodding. Overall though, it is an excellent novel with a revolutionary message. I think everyone ought to give it a read at least once in their lives!

16 von 17 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Henning Gloege am 9. November 2003
Format: Taschenbuch
In an opinion poll of the US Library of Congress this was found out to be the second most influential book of history in the US, after the Bible.
I am currently in Buenos Aires, and here in Argentina it is only this year that an uncensored version of this book is published for the first time, and this almost 50 years after its first publication in the US. That should tell you something about its controversial nature.
As for the story, I am sure that the many other critiques of this book have given you a rough idea about it. Personally, I have always found many of the issues and speeches in the book to be somewhat redundant, and the fervor with which the Objectivists defend the book to be just a tad hysterical. To criticize the book or the author is akin to blasphemy in the eyes of many Randroids.
The problem in my view has always been that, as Rand herself once said, this is more of a philosophical exposee than a literary novel, and that shows quite often. As far as literary works go, the author's previous novel 'The Fountainhead' is far superior. The philosophy is the same, but the author concentrated on the story first, instead of worrying solely about how to propagate her philosophy.
Regardless of whether or not you agree with Mrs. Rand's views, this book is too important to simply ignore. It would be like ignoring the Communist Manifesto, just because you are an anti-communist, or the Bible because you are an atheist. For all collectivists: 'Know Thy Enemy', and for all individualists: 'Get it' if for no other reason than its importance for the individualist and libertarian movement. Individualism has too few advocates as it is, and this book has quite possibly laid the foundations of a rivival of the old liberal tradition in the decades after its first publication.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I just finished Atlas Shrugged today. Wow, was that every a long read, and I mean long. I've read Fountainhead and own almost all of her works. She is an inspiration to the freemarketer and the person who craves justice in a putrid mess of a world. But I will admit some stuff to the people who hate this book. Ayn Rand isn't that great a literay novelist. While her books are inspirational and such, they are way too drawn out and half the book (at least) could have been cut out and nothing taken away from the book itself. She needed to listen to her editor a little more, although from her character of Howard Roard I doubt she ever did.... Oh well. Ayn socialist, I'd dare you to read it and see the bankrupting principles of your moral system. Oh and one last thing, I am one of those evil mystics she rants about- a Christian. While I struggle with my belief in God, I believe she was irrational for her disbelieve in God. Although it does sadden me that I will probably spend eternity in Heaven with Jerry Falwell, while Ayn Rand is frying in Hell, we can only hope she repented before death, but somehow I doubt it.

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Bill Stowe am 21. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Who is John Galt? A universal question. Who is this man that threatened to stop the "motor of the world?"
Is capitalism "evil?" Is the desire to build a better mousetrap, and prove it, so bad? Is subservience, masquerading under the pseudonym of alturism, so noble?
See for yourself, and make your own judgement.
For me, as I read "Atlas Shrugged", I found myself able to only read a few chapters at a time, having to put the book down, in anger at the situations presented in the book, and recognizing that all of us, whether we dare to admit it or not, believe that recognition should be earned, via our efforts, and not just platitudes to satisfy the masses.
If only to stir the emotions of a true individualist, this should be must reading for anyone who is not satisfied with the status quo, but truly seeks a better world.
