    I am going to have to dig hard to reverse-engineer justifications for my perfect book being Atlas Shrugged. It’s… not. Weirdly judgmental and narcissistically assholish Randian politico-philosophy aside, the endless, repetitive, preachy, repetitive, tedious, repetitive speechifying is just plain boring.

    You can’t make me read it again without holding a gun to my head like Wesley Mouch, and I won’t do it on my own.

    I’m on record as my favorite book being Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle (technically eight books in one, but what the hey).Report

    I’m an ISTJ/ISTP (it’s pretty close), but my preferred reading leans heavily towards speculative fiction (along with certain literary classics). Realism and practicality are for work, but relaxation demands a break from that.

    I may check out The Gunslinger, though.Report

    Hey! I’m an INTP too!

    And I’m a Huxley fan as well. I wasn’t aware that might have anything to do with my personality type though.Report
