… reading Atlas Shrugged would have been on it for several years now.
Both of our children have told me over and over again that I just have to read Atlas Shrugged, a book they both say is the best novel they have ever read.
Well, I’ve finally bought the book. It’s a little daunting because it’s so big. My copy is a huge 6″x9″ paperback with almost 1,200 pages.
I began reading it last week. I’m about an 8th of the way through it now. And I can already see why it is still a popular book even though it was written in 1957. Ayn Rand is a master at intertwining multiple plots to keep the reader interested, curious and even perplexed enough to keep reading. And her subject matter is so very timely for the world we live in today.
I’ve read some books that when I was done, I would think “What a waste!” But I can already tell, this won’t be one of those.
