No surprise, then, that the novel is also a parody, and not only a lampooning of Rands writing style, characters and plot, but also the philosophy behind them. Overall it is a respectfully serious parody, oxymoronic though the concept may seem, a serious critique, and serious fiction as well.Despite its tight connection with Rands Atlas Shrugged, it is not necessary to have read her book in order to enjoy Atlas Snubbed- it stands alone on its own strengths, although the parody is richer for those who have been exposed to Rands novel.The trilogy picks up precisely where Rand left things at the end of Atlas Shrugged.

The first book focuses on the outside world, the second on the world inside the philosophical enclave known as the Gulch, and the third, what happens when worlds collide.The story is a fast-paced, apocalyptic tale of the bloody collapse of Rands United States, the handful of American cities which survive, and on the subsequent altercations between them.

Each city embodies a different philosophical archetype, one of which is a brand new political concept--the separation of Society and State--an approach which overcomes the shortcomings of all the other archetypes, including many of those of modern day America.And of course our hero gets the girl in the end.
