  • "Let Go and Listen"

    Overall

    Raised an atheist, I have sometimes found the voices of atheists can be loud, uneducated and dare I say intolerant. This book will not change your views, but it will challenge you to examine them. Humor and personal anecdotes can be the best way to express one's views. Ms. Sweeney is honest and funny! What a great combination.

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

  • Letting Go of God

    "Artfully told"

    Overall

    I would not have tolerated this book if it were written any other way than the way she told it. From her experiences, I can see why she has come to the conclusion she did. I learned a valuable lesson from her, my thoughts are my own and I don't have to worry about being judged one day for them. Thank you for clearing my head of the "judgement seat" of God. I cannot let go of God, but I can understand those who have and will not burden them with the mundane questions and comments in attempts to "figure them out". Thank you for gently telling your story with humor and love. I finally get it.

    This feels rushed out in time for Christmas. The five stories aren't very long especially considering one of them is just random snippets from his diary. I wished the publisher had waited unitl he had a whole book. That said, listening to Sedaris live adds a lot to the stories.

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.
