This was the most boring book I've ever read by choice (as compared to Moby Dick, Grapes of Wrath and Great Expectations, all of which I was forced to read in high school).
I made it through about a third of Atlas Shrugged...but I swear it took me 2 months to do it...zzzzzzzzz. Who is John Galt? Who cares, get to the point already!
heh, i ripped through it in 2 weeks on a full work schedule; couldn't put it down. probably my favorite book. if you're not into economic/moral philosophy then its probably not worth 1200 pages of your time. I think the first 2 are worthwhile regardless.

Blahhh...I can't stand Rand. I found her stuff to be dull, protracted, tripe barely worth the paper it's printed on. I would suggest reading a pamphlet on ethical egoism and saving yourself hours and hours of boredom. But then, I've never read 'Anthem,' maybe it's different.
Anthem is short and a good intro to the idea of ethical egoism
