LOADED WITH GREAT TRUTHS
SAME AS ABOVE
SILLY QUESTION WHEN TALKING ABOUT GOD
GREAT BOOK BUTHARD TO FOLLOW NARRATOR-I SUGGEST YOU REISSUE WITH BETTER NARRATOR
This is a book that should be paret of any atheist's collection.
Yes this is the best I have read from him.
Hitchens was a master at delivering powerful rhetoric with tones of brilliant understatement.
If you are exploring atheism as someone new to it, this is probably the best introduction. If your faith is wobbling, Hitchens will probably collapse it for you.
Yes. It is pleasing to listen to Hitchens read Hitchens. Voice inflection and tone increase the delight of digesting this text.
It covers so much historical territory! You get a history lesson whist Hitchens shreds and completely eviscerates the major religions. None are spared and I simply loved it! It was also great for a vocabulary boost...
No "scene" in particular, but I thoroughly enjoyed how he disemboweled Christianity, proving that it is NO better than fundamentalist Islam.
Proof That Religion is Completely Man Made
I listend to the entire book twice. This was not initially planned, but there was so much to absorb. I have disliked religion since Catholic grade school. After listening to this book, I have moved beyond passive atheism and am now proudly and openly hostile to religion in all of its forms. The world will be a better place without it some day.
Hearing the logic and reason in my mind, spoken aloud better than I might ever be ever be able to say it.
His intelligence shines.
It gave me joy. Hope. Pride.
Wish I could get all my loved ones to hear this open mindedly.
The combination of Hitchens reasoned arguments, with his outstanding narration, makes this a tremendously thought provoking title.
His narration enabled me to power through some of the archane passages.
No way. This book is long, and it's not the kind of book you would want to breeze through.
The content was worth listening to.
Here is the disappointment; I don't know whether the audio production was to blame or the narrator. The differences in clarity were just disappointing. He seemed to go from clear narration to mumbling, from loud to soft.
I doubt it
Yes, and I have listened to it several times.
I couldn't pick a favorite chapter. This book is great from the opening line to the closing remarks.
Christopher has a voice that is spell binding. Hearing his expression in the text improved the reading experience. The book is a great source of knowledge.
No I wouldn't call it extreme. Enlightening would be a much better word.
Yes, the author who is now dead had a wonderful voice.
"No boy's behind left."
Not a novel.
Whole book moved me.
If religious, you may still like it.
Simply outstanding book.
I enjoy the authors reading style.
Listening to him read, was like having an interesting conversation, in which my participation was not necessary.
A must read, or in this case listen for those on both sides of the subject.
