Atlas ShruggedAtlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A friend recommended this book and it was a revelation.
I was blown away by so many things – the characters, the plot, the philosophy, the insightfulness… I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you enjoy art, social literature, romance, controlled society (dystopian) novels, detective/mystery/thrillers…
Although there are a lot of characters the basic storyline is fairly straightforward where an industrialist tries to produce the best product to supply the railroad industry. That is the basic story. The subplots and sub-subplots are as twisted and perverse as the characters, the government and the society the book is set in.
Read it. Just…read it!

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2014 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you lied it - or even why not!
