Anyone who’s attempted to read Ayn Rand’s heavy tome of a book, Atlas Shrugged, knows it isn’t an easy book to get through. I have started and stopped countless times throughout my life, always getting further, but never getting DONE. I apply the drudge theory to it: if it becomes a drudge to read, it’s not worth my reading time.
Imagine my relief to find the folks over at Spudworks decided to save me from the I-still-haven’t-finished-it-guilts by offering this brief abridgement. Surprisingly, it is pretty accurate; I can follow the book all the way through to where I last left off.
