An exciting book: Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged

Today I had a very interesting book as a gift. Thank you! I had never heard about Ayn Rand before. But obviously she is a very well known American philosopher. Shame on me. Known for her philosophy of Objectivism. So this books theme appears to philosophically adress that general governmental micro-management of private enterprise and reallocation of wealth will not do societey good on the long run. Well that is what I understand from the introduction. Sounds like something as "the survival of the fittest"......

Looking forward to reading it. It´s almost 1200 it will probably take a while. I´d be happy to hear what other thinks about this book and Ayn Rand in general.
