Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

About the Book

Ayn Rand’s longest and most controversial novel, “Atlas Shrugged” is set in a timeless American world where the Taggart family controls the railroads and Rearden family controls steel production. These two “titans” prosper despite a failing economy and growingly discontent citizen population. Much of this book is focused around Ayn Rand’s philosophy of “objectivism” which is essentially the value of “rational selfishness” and acting in a self-benefitting manner regardless of exterior conditions. Rand’s characters are overplayed to symbolize their philosophical approaches, and this novel leaves readers questioning their own morality and ethical beliefs.
