Inhaltsangabe

In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? And why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies but against the woman he loves?

Tremendous in scope and breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, an electrifying moral defense of capitalism and free enterprise which launched an ideological movement and gained millions of loyal fans around the world.

Great book about great people.

it made me think about my own country, Ukraine, governed by people, who want death instead of living. yes, it looks like Rand's world - the worse one, has came true there.

A stinking pile of fiction...

No wonder this is popular in certain circles... it is full of contrived scenarios intended to justify the author's opinion. It tries to sell 100% free, unregulated capitalism to those who can't think for themselves by using scare tactics, instead of even attempting to take an honest look at the the strengths and weaknesses, benefits and risks, of capitalism vs socialism and the million shades in between - it's all black and white to Rand, and if you disagree with her, then no one should pity you of you should be killed in a tragic train accident.. Fiction it is, but a good "read", it is not.

Life changing book

I have studied economics and I still can‘t believe that non of my teachers made this book a compulsory read! It is hard to define what kind of book this is, as philosophy, economic theory and elements of a novel blend into each other, like I have not encountered before. While many decades have passed since its writing, it couldn’t be more relevant to our time.
If nothing else, every reader will have to question his own ideals, values and his own position in current society... 60 hours of audio book that are definitely well spent!!!

A superb book with a interesting question

If you are searching for a LONG and interesting audiobook and are willing to be open minded, this one is for you. While I'll give it 5 stars in general, one has to admit that it is filled with monolouges, which nobody would ever give in real life. Moreover, there are long stretching sequences, between incredible interesting topics.

In short: worthwhile, if you are capable to work with a little bit of suspension of disbelief.

Absolutely astonishing

Definitely a must read for everybody affiliating with libertarian values. This book challenged and redefined a lot of moral values I held.

bloated romance novel with simpleton philosophy

The book is a thousand pages long. None of the protagonists have any individual character traits whatsoever. The good are good. The bad are bad. A lot of it is cheesy romance novel kitsch. The underlying philosophy is as simple as it is bland. Endless dialogues. A laughable action sequence at the end. Whoever claims that this book "changed their lives" has never read it.
The audio presentation was laughably dramatic. At times it seemed to be mocking the novel itself.

"Lebe selbst moralisch und meide die es nicht tun"

Die Form, eine Philosophie und Beschreibung gesellschaftlicher Prozesse mit einem Roman zu präsentieren, ist genial, da Dinge, die Nachdenken erfordern ohne Langeweile in unterschiedlichen Episoden wiederholt werden. (Beispiel: warum nur schwarz weiss in moralischen fragen)
Die Geschichte selbst ist spannend, die Szenen in denen es um Abläufe in Organisationen, wie dem Stahlwerk, oder in der Tech. Wissenschaftsszene geht sind eine schöne Mischung aus Detailkenntnissen der Realität und dem Verweben mit der Hauptgeschichte. Dass Rand auch Liebe nicht als Thema zur philosophischen Betrachtung umgeht, hätte man sicher akzeptiert. Nachdem man Ihre Beschreibung der rationalen Liebe - rational in dem definierten Sinne, also egoistisch - gelesen hat, kommt man nicht umhin es als notwendigen Kern der Philosophie zu sehen.

Zur Moral von Ayn Rand: Das Konzept einer Moral habe ich durch das Buch zum ersten mal so detailliert und konsistent verstanden. Sie beschreibt den Menschen wie er ist, selbst wenn ihm die Gelegenheit fehlt es den Wert eines eigenen Wertesystems zu erkennen.

Die Geschichte zeigt viele Parallelen zur aktuellen Gesellschaft in westl. Staaten, v.a. die Abkehr des Glaubens, dass man selbst Ursache und Wirkung beeinflussen kann, ohne auf die "Pistole" der Staatsmacht zurückzugreifen. In diesem Sinne prognostiziert Ayn Rand den Untergang einer Gesellschaft in der Moralische Motivationen durch verordneten Zwang ersetzt werden (Umweltgesetze, Sozialstaat etc.).

Still relevant

a good adaptation of Ayn Rand celebrating how the egoism of a few ruins many and ultimately achieves nothing.
