Though Atlas Shrugged is not very good fiction and the characters are
caricatures, it is an addictive page turner. I never cared much for
Rand's version of libertarianism, which is a caricature like her
characters. But in today's very anti-libertarian culture, reading
Atlas Shrugged is refreshing and needed.

The book seems to be very polarizing, with some loathing it and others praising it. I come mostly from a libertarian perspective and am curious as to the potential pitfalls of the book and what may be learned by reading it.
