Which book to read? Atlas Shrugged? Or Ulysses?

ULYSSES by James Joyce Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Which book is better? Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand? Or Ulysses by James Joyce? Which book should a person read? And why? These two books tend always to be at the top of reader lists, the former at the top of "elite" lists, whereas the latter at the top of common reader lists. But which is really better?

Read them both, dummy.

I doubt you can understand, or even finish, Ulysses.

@g: That's a statistically good guess, about understanding, that is.

Finishing, on the other hand, is particularly easy - at least for those who don't understand.

Problem with James Joyce is you can't understand him. Problem with Ayn Rand is you can. She is laughable.
