Currently Reading: Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand

1 min read

“If you don’t know, the thing to do is not to get scared, but to learn.” — Ayn Rand, in Atlas Shrugged

I’m reading a book about the importance of creative minds in the world, the dark side of a forced moral code among a group of people, and an interesting debate about the mind-body dichotomy disguised into dystopian fiction.

I’m finally wandering into ATLAS SHRUGGED, by Ayn Rand, and the first paragraphs already put my mind to work, fueled and stimulated.

The book so far is filled with rhetorical questions and dystopian situations that disturbingly resemble A LOT with reality. And it seems like an interesting mystery story about the murder of values and the rebirth of man’s spirit. You can see I’m already deep inside this book and I cannot get out until I reach the last page and close it.

I’m also reading THE PICKWICK PAPERS by Charles Dickens, and CATCH-22, by Joseph Heller, with amazing friends at the #BeardyRead Book Club.

    Hey João! Sounds like a great reading. I might give it a try. I’m currently reading First person Singular, by Murakami, and, like you, I can’t take my eyes off not even for a second, each story is captivating. I’m planning to finish the book today so I can move to the next book which is another Murakami work because this month is what I called Murakami’s month, in which I only read… Well you know the rest.
    Have a nice week 🙂
