One Last Ayn Rand Post

Megan McArdle, who blogs economics at The Atlantic, wrote a post this morning about Atlas Shrugged that really nails my opinion about the novel.  She touches on Rand’s strengths but pegs Rand’s inability to write fully-fleshed out characters, referring to the book’s dramatis personae as behaving like “comic book characters,” which is perfect in light of my upcoming “Atlas Shrugged v Watchmen” post this weekend.  If you’ve read any of the Ayn Rand material that’s been on the site the past few weeks, I encourage you to click that link.
