    Synopsis

    Atlas Shrugged is the astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world – and did. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged stretches the boundaries further than any book you have ever read. It is a mystery, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder – and rebirth – of man's spirit.#91 in ABC My Favourite Book
