    Tough to make a good movie out of a lousy novel. It's got to be one of the most boring books ever written. I had to force myself to finish it to see what all the hoopla was about, but didn't find any. Besides being extremely repetitive, there isn't a single fully formed character in the book. They're all caricatures, totally noble or totally venal. You can't base a real life philosophy on an "ism" that's that far removed from reality.

    It is pretty amusing to see right wing christians praising a devout atheist.

    Wow! I can't wait for the next installment. The first one was so good! This is great news that they are going ahead.

    Ayn Rand was way ahead of Her time. Imagine.... an Atheist that believes in Conscience,Soul, Vision, Cause and Effect, Exceptional-ism. She is not worshiped, just greatly appreciated.
