castigate Ayn Rand for shallowness in characterisation and obsessiveness in theme should mark more whence
she comes in her thought. She is always using a variety of literary forms to warn of the subtle unrelenting
pressure of the State and its depressing weight on any individualism that does not worship the current
is obvious that the spreading activism in the Middle East is 'Ayn Rand in delayed effect.' She saw the
horror of State weight on people that her cirtics have never remotely experienced, and they do not imagine how
it feels to not be able to post free ideas.

characters in her novels are very one dimentional and always extremely predictable. Her writing would go
over better with me if she simply stuck to non fiction. He books are not at all subtle. Its like
hitting you over the head with objectivism. 800+ pages of it in each of her two major works. Too
much to handle for me.

is a nut. Her books are long and drawn out saying the same thing over and over and over and over and
over... You get the idea. We get it Ayn. You don't like socialism. Great.

Rand's philosophy of objectivism is an integral part in all of her novels. Perhaps that she is a native
of Russia has added to her philosophy of life. Communism, apparently did not sit well with Ms.
Rand. As I state this, do not take it that I think her writing is anything but first rate. It
is. She has written some terrific novels, among them "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead," both of
which are hundreds of pages long and which I could not put down. Even so, they both contain her concept
of objectivism in abundance. This philosophy lives today and will probably endure into the future.
It ibasically involves that one should live their lives responsibly and their first duty is to
themselves. Altruism be damned. Altruism is against the survival instinct. Without
selfishness, no living thing can survive. This sounds really harsh. I apologize for that. Ayn
Rand's philosophy is not harsh, it is full of truth.
