Customer Reviews

Better than I thoughtI bought the CliffNotes on Ayn Rand's Atlas shrugged because I wanted to know how it ended faster than having to read all the way through the novel. Never having used any CliffNotes before I was pleasantly surprised to find how detailed and informative they are. It covered plot, characters, reasoning and background information that I never would have gotten from just reading the novel. If you want to know the inside story, this is the place to get it without pain.5Not what you might think -- it's an excellent companion to the full Atlas Shrugged novel.At first, I thought a CliffsNotes version of Atlas Shrugged might be a rather thin ghost of the actual book. But just before buying this copy, I had the opportunity to hear Andrew Bernstein (the author of the CliffsNotes rendition) speak on Ayn Rand. Bernstein is an accomplished philosopher who has studied Ayn Rand's philosophy (Objectivism) and has a deep understanding of her works. Reading this has increased my understanding and enjoyment of the full version of Atlas Shrugged. Years ago, CliffsNotes proved useful to me when taking various college classes ... but this proved to be a valuable resource for getting better understanding of what Ayn Rand was describing in hour masterpiece novel.Highly recommended5Sometimes you need a little help from your friendsFirst off, please do not confuse my 4-star rating of this literature **guide** to Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged", with the 5-star rating I gave to Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" itself.Ann Rand's masterpiece, "Atlas Shrugged", in its unabridged form is a 1000+ page tome that might easily overwhelm you in keeping all the characters and plot points together. Just because it took Rand many years to write the book, it doesn't mean you want to have to spend years to understand it (or at least most of it).Rather than treat reading the book in the same way one would approach dissection of a book in a graduate school course, comparing and contrasting characters, outlining the plot in excruciating detail, looking for incidents foreshadowed, tracking the comings and goings of numerous characters, and in general taking the joy out of reading the book, I decided to sub-contract that work to CliffsNotes.Yes, I know it is a CliffsNotes guide, but I bought and read it only after reading the book, and I found things in the guide that I had missed in my original reading of "Atlas Shrugged". I was then able to re-read parts of the book and connect the dots on some of the more esoteric ideas presented. My friend Cliff (AKA, Andrew Bernstein) via his Cliff's notes did an excellent job for me.This is by no means a substitute for reading the book. (I always read unabridged versions of books that I acquire and suggest that you do the same.) Yes Rand is wordy, but she has a lot to say. Her forecast of a frightening future world dystopic society, ruled by bureaucrats was written many decades ago. Rand seems to be a prophet in describing the progression of the post-WWII western world. If while reading this book, you don't have a slightly uncomfortable feeling about the direction of how things are moving in the United States, you best read it again.Oh, and for Audible fans, the book is available albeit in a number of parts to facilitate downloading. I did not see a way to do the downloads to one file -- which if not available, should be, for those of us blessed by a fast Internet connection.But I would use the Audible version only to do immersion reading lest when you are fatigued events move faster than you absorb the book, and "Atlas Shrugged" becomes a lullaby. Rand's work is not good bedtime reading, and I suggest reading it only when you are alert and have a block of time available to give it your all. In my case, I got absolutely hooked on the book, so I made a lot of time open to read the book.4conciseCliffs Notes is always going to be a good source to learn whatever from a literary work. I ordered it together with the book and I received the Student Version of Atlas Shrugged. The print size was good for when I was a student-too small, not for now. And the seller omitted to make this particularity known in the specs of the book, thus I had to send it back.The story began to be written about 65 years ago as a futuristic novel which events would crystalize in 2017, I think; however the book, as strange as it might sound, is a book about secret societies, apparently Ayn Rand moved in those circles. Individuals plan for the next day or week, these societies focus on fifty,or hundred years; maybe we should do the same. The books becomes frightfully accurate in its parallelism with todays socioeconomic events which takes us to the premises in which secret cabals operate.The book is a must read, its novelization is uncanny as it begins to solidify to the tune of present envents, and MS. Rand is an gifted and prolific writer. Yes, I got this much out of the Notes and cannot wait until I get my book.5The very best brief summary and analysis of the book that I ...The very best brief summary and analysis of the book that I have ever seen. I've read the book six times over five decades and I sstill refer to the Cliff Notes as to finding something in a chapter, or looking up a certain speech. Great analysis of characters and summaries of each chapter. I strongly recommend it!!!!5Excellent for my objectiveI'm not going to read the book. Too busy. Did want a good overview of the theme and characters, which the Cliff Notes did a great job of laying out for me. Certainly not a substitute for the entire read, but now I do have an understanding of the plot, theme, and Rand's philosophy.5Excellent analysis and summationHave repeatedly read Ayn Rand's books over the last 50 years, but wanted to read an outside view of what I consider her best work -- Atlas shrugged. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the Cliff Notes, which kept a level and fair presentation of all the complex philosophical points so key to this author's work. This book let me see a new side to a much loved story, ideology, and author. Thank you.5Well written!I have read Atlas Shrugged twice (once twenty five years ago, and once recently). Although I got more out of it the second time, I still felt I was missing something. So I thought I would see if there was a Cliffs Notes on Atlas Shrugged, hoping to gain a better perspective on the material. I was encouraged by the Amazon reviews and purchased the Kindle version. It was extremely helpful to me. I appreciated the background on the author, and the synopsis of each character. It gave me a much broader understanding of this classic.I was also pleased to see Cliffs Notes is still relevant and being published today. I had the honor of actually meeting Cliff Hillegass when I was in collage at Nebraska.5Very helpfulBesides giving good insight into story surrounding "Atlas Shrugged" this guide also provided the sort of character analysis that caused one to think deeper about the characters within. I read this prior to reading Atlas Shrugged as I wasn't sure that I wanted to deal with 1100 pages of philosophizing. After reading Cliff's Guide I was convinced to read what was not only a good story but also a book to stimulate thought. Of course some things have changed since Ayn Rands book but I heartily recommend Cliff's guide as a precursor.4What a big help!This is a wonderful tool for someone like me who was assigned this book to read as part of a book club and don't have time to read 1,000 pages in a month. It is also a very deep, philosophical book and having the insights provided in the Cliff Notes is very helpful. Also good to have all of the background information on the author.5
