I am currently reading 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand. Has anyone read this book or any of her other works? I would love to hear your comments.

Very needy, sad woman (read "The Passion of Ayn Rand" and "Judgment Day" by her two students), misunderstood by many who interpret her as being a "right wing conservative" (she hated them); her writing style is clunky but many of her ideas are interesting. Good luck with "Atlas Shrugged"! LOL

I moved to New York City in February of 1982 and and attended Ayn Rand's funeral on March 6, 1982 at the Frank G. Campbell funeral home in Manhattan. Her life odyssey ended and mine began.
