Is Atlas shrugging?

My old pal Brian Richardson has written the greatest book review of Atlas Shrugged ever. Here's how it begins:
"When she entered the room, she knew immediately that he had finished reading the book. His eyes surveyed the lines of her dress approvingly, as if remembering his glorious exploration of the underlying body and recognizing its perfection, content in the knowledge that he knew and understood every contour. As he looked around the room, she could tell he saw the furniture, the appliances, the ashtray full of crushed stubs with the telltale dollar sign, in a way he could not have seen fully unless and until he had read and absorbed every page into the core of his being."
Fer chrissakes, finish reading the review right here.

Holy smokes. That's 50 years of reviews yer talkin about, fella. But I'm glad at least someone grokked where I was trying to go with that thing! I just hope I don't get hunted down by Randian cultists.
