Atlas Shrugged

READ READ READ READ!!!

Just finished up this book last night, and probably one of the best books I've ever read. Granted, I haven't read many books.... but, for it to keep my attention?

I haven't read Fountainhead, but, my girlfriend has. She didn't like it as much as Atlas Shrugged. As big of a book as Atlas Shrugged is, I would take a small breather. It's the kind of book that just keeps pulling you in.

Just because you puffed his pickle, doesn't mean he's a queer

Nah. He simply stepped back out of the society that didn't fit him, and didn't agree with him. He saw their demise, and chose not to be a part of it. He created his own society, hand picked, and chose to share his technology with only those who could see the reasons for which he himself lived for.

I'll go with frustration, but, I didn't see any shame being to blame for his relocation.
