    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.

    ©1985 Eugene Winick, Paul Gitlin and Leonard Peikoff (P)2008 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    Eines der wichtigsten Werke überhaupt

    1957 geschrieben und dauerhaft aktuell. Ayn Rand setzt die Charaktere brillant in Szene. Sie ist eine Meisterin darin, Dinge von allen Seiten zu beleuchten. Sie enttarnt die verderbliche Moral der "Looters" und zeigt wie kompromisslos den Forderungen der Sozialisten entgegen getreten werden muss. Ein flammendes Plädoyer für die Freiheit der Individuums und eine gute Illustration was passiert, wenn die "Looters" immer mehr Macht gewinnen.
