I think they are good reads, but I'm not sure that I agree with their premise. Rand is just too 'capitalism is king and socialism is pure evil' for me. I may be atheist/agnostic, but I'm also too much of a left-leaning liberal to feel totally comfortable with what she's saying.

Well, I just finished Anthem. I enjoyed the book until the end where Rand launches into a libertarian lecture.
I don't mind a book with a political message - in fact, most good literature has a message of some sort. But I don't need to be hit over the head with "The Point." Especially when I mostly agree with the writer's point of view.
Maybe I will try Atlas Shrugged and see if I like that better.
