This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world, and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battle not against his enemys but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas shrugged" is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. "Atlas shrugged" emerged as a premier moral apologia for Capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who have never heard Capitalism defended in other than technical terms.… (mais)

Pormenores da obra

Atlas Shrugged por Ayn Rand (1957)

  1. 144
    The Fountainhead por Ayn Rand (PghDragonMan, bigtent21, thebookpile)
    PghDragonMan: This earlier work is more lyrical and is a milder, and more condensed, version of the philosophy expressed by this work.
    bigtent21: "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead" are becoming more relevant as we head into 2009. Large Government Buyouts and Regulation are the scourge of Atlas Shrugged and the outright sponsoring of mediocrity predominates The Fountainhead. Rand can be long-winded, but these two books are must reads regardless of your own personal beliefs.… (mais)
  2. 72
    Compendio da obra da riqueza das nações por Adam Smith (thebookpile)
  3. 73
    Essays on Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged por Robert Mayhew (mcaution)
    mcaution: Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Rand's magnum opus through this unique collection of scholarly criticism. See why after 50+ years in print it's selling better than when it was first published.
  4. 63
    The Dispossessed por Ursula K. Le Guin (lauranav)
  5. 74
    The Ayn Rand Cult por Jeff Walker (bertilak)
  6. 31
    The Road to Serfdom por F. A. Hayek (ljessen)
  7. 00
    Wiseguy por Nicholas Pileggi (kswolff)
    kswolff: Henry Hill, like Dagny Taggart, uses ingenuity and skill to avoid his income getting taxed by repressive moocher FBI agents and Narcs.
  8. 11
    Progress por Charles Stampul (PeerlessPress)
  9. 00
    The Probability Broach por L. Neil Smith (fulner)
    fulner: The probably broach is like Atlas Shrugged meets inter-dimensional time travel.
  10. 00
    Blood Republic por James Duncan (Utilizador anónimo)
    Utilizador anónimo: If you love books that try to push the envelope of philosophical thought, but do it within a rapid-fire plot, this is the book for you.
  11. 11
    The God of the Machine por Isabel Paterson (bertilak)
  12. 01
    Ten Rallies por Pasquin (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: Do the needs of the many outweigh the value of the individual?
  13. 12
    Faith of the Fallen por Terry Goodkind (Cecrow)
    Cecrow: Fans of both Ayn Rand and the fantasy genre will find affirmation in Goodkind's series, notably beginning with this entry.
  14. 23
    Metafisica de Aristoteles por Aristotle (thebookpile)
  15. 23
    The Year of the Flood por Margaret Atwood (rratzlaff)
  16. 01
    The Leopard's Spots por Thomas Dixon Jr. (Utilizador anónimo)
    Utilizador anónimo: Both of these books are famous for being controversial, and are as hated by their detractors as they are loved by their fans. They also both have a long winded speech by a character who starts off not being a real part of the story and ends up being the full protagonist.… (mais)
  17. 23
    Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right por Jennifer Burns (szarka)
  18. 03
    Juliette por Marquis de Sade (kswolff)
    kswolff: Like "Atlas Shrugged," it is an aspirational epic about a strong-minded, pleasure-seeking woman triumphing over adversity and the herd mentality of her fellow humans. Sade, like Rand, was also a strident atheist given to writing characters give long speeches.
  19. 29
    The Stand: The Complete and Uncut Edition por Stephen King (missmaddie)
    missmaddie: Epic struggles of good vs. evil

Opening up your mindset, different perspectives and new beginnings.

An asset for any reader. Priceless! ( )

Although I appreciate this book, I think it's a bit overrated. It does make for great debate that could go on all night if you're in a book group with smart and interesting people. Her characters are extreme and nearly everything is black and white. Guess she did that to get her point across. By the end, I felt like I was reading sic-fi/fantasy. And those sentences. My eyes glazed over too many times to count. I'm glad I read it, though. ( )

Ayn Rand needs to check her premises. She does fairly successfully argue that communism relies entirely on the few people who actually love their work, the solution she proposes is simplistic and less than adequate. Her entire economic philosophy relies on several ideas that she never once brings to question. One key problem with her argument, is that all of the heroes in her book enjoy their work more than anything else in life. The justification is that they value money, suggesting that the work itself doesn't matter as long as it makes money. But clearly these characters enjoy the work itself more than the money they make, since they hardly spend time doing anything but working. The extreme dedication they have for their work is compulsive, even neurotic. Rand fails to explain how work is more enjoyable than anything else in life, or why one's life should be dedicated to such a purpose. Yet all of these characters are apparently working in their own self-interest, when it's actually the "looters", as she calls them, who live by their own self-interest. The true altruists, in her world, are the inventors and businesspeople who put so much effort into their work for the benefit of society, at the sacrifice of all worldly pleasures. Sure, society as we know it would crumble if all the talent disappeared, but what would be the point of society if every moment of our lives was dedicated to the benefit of society rather than our own? Since most of us do not love our work, and many of us don't even know what type of work we would enjoy, if any, her philosophy is not ideal for a good amount of people. It's easy for her to make the argument because she only shows her one side of the argument, and doesn't even try to explain the appeal of the other side. When she indicates that taxation is theft, she not only forgets that the government is providing a service that it should get paid for, but she implies that you need to earn your right to live. What is the point of society then, if not to guarantee people the right to live? The whole point of working is to do more than just live. Having to work to survive is why petty crime exists. If we were given at least the ability to survive, then people would be more motivated to work, since it would be not out of force but out of an intrinsic desire to live a better life.
Despite this, I do appreciate her criticism of relativism. She makes a lot of good points but her conclusions are premature. ( )

An book with an interesting plot, but very heavy handed, long winded and with completely unbelievable characters. ( )

"Despite laborious monologues, the reader will stay with this strange world, borne along by its story and eloquent flow of ideas."

"to warn contemporary America against abandoning its factories, neglecting technological progress and abolishing the profit motive seems a little like admonishing water against running uphill."
adicionada por GYKM | editarThe New Yorker
 
"inspired" and "monumental" but "(t)o the Christian, everyone is redeemable. But Ayn Rand’s ethical hardness may repel those who most need her message: that charity should be voluntary…. She should not have tried to rewrite the Sermon on the Mount."
 
Atlas Shrugged represents a watershed in the history of world literature.

"We struggle to be just. For we cannot help feeling at least a sympathetic pain before the sheer labor, discipline, and patient craftsmanship that went to making this mountain of words. But the words keep shouting us down. In the end that tone dominates. But it should be its own antidote, warning us that anything it shouts is best taken with the usual reservations with which we might sip a patent medicine. Some may like the flavor. In any case, the brew is probably without lasting ill effects. But it is not a cure for anything. Nor would we, ordinarily, place much confidence in the diagnosis of a doctor who supposes that the Hippocratic Oath is a kind of curse."

"remarkably silly" and "can be called a novel only by devaluing the term" ... "From almost any page of Atlas Shrugged, a voice can be heard, from painful necessity, commanding: 'To the gas chambers — go!'"
