old stuff... funny! okay it is sad... oh so sad.

Short Book reviews part one... Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

If you want to read all of my book reviews.. well today at least they will all be right here. In the future, you might find them scattered like so much tumbleweed throughout this blog. But the plan for right now, is that each short and sweet book review will be added here as a comment.. so here goes nothing... (Okay upon further reflection.. and a couple of beers.. I decided to make each review it's own post rather than a comment, and I decided to expand into Movies and Music as well.. so let the games begin...)

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
Great book, when you’re a 20 something Conservative Republican.
SUCKS when you’re a 38 year old Libertarian!
It has been 4 years since I last read this book, I remember the first time through as an eye opening experience, I remember that last time through an a reason to roll my eyes.. and think about my poor uncle who is a Randian.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that has no appreciation for money… as long as they are still in there teens or twenties when there mind is nice and malleable. After that.. well lets just say that the long azz monologue in the middle of the book will put a speed freak to sleep.
You can see other Reviews at amazon .com by clicking the picture.. if that damn thing shows up.. below.


Hard to believe I read it... but I did... yuck.
The second one would be good for me now... but it is because I can't read real good anymore.
(okay it is 'cause I hate this book)

several years ago I did read Anthem and enjoyed it very much. In fact could not put the book down. I came across the book through an appreciation of Rush (the band)2112 is based on that novel. However I tried Atlas Shrugged and was bored out of my mind. Only got about 4 maybe 5 chapters into it and had to put it down. I will say for the record, I do lean a bit conservative.

I did too... lean towards Right... that is.
Now I am more a centrist.
