I just finished reading Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. I've tried reading it before (maybe 15 years ago?) but I don't think I got through it. It didn't make much of an impression on me at that time, at any rate. This time was quite different. I think my understanding of the world has changed significantly and some parts of the book really resonated strongly with me.

It's a bit if a mixed bag, I guess. The bad part is that the world seems to be becoming more like what Rand described in the book. The good part is that the book was written a long time ago and Rand probably also felt the world was like that then, so maybe it's not actually trending worse but just feels that way.

In terms of writing style I found the book rather verbose, and I did skip over some of the longer philosophical speeches once I got the gist of it, But still definitely worth reading.
