I liked the analogies and experience the author has had. He gives a great argument for the cause.
It was difficult to understand because the narrator, who also happens to be the author, spoke quickly, mumbled, and had an English accent. That made for an unpleasant experience.
This is a thorough evaluation of religion and he damage it has done to the world at large. I think this is a good read for both believers as well as non believers and will need to listen a few more times to more fully understand all that Hitchens included. I did find Hitchens hard to listen to as he is fairly monotone and I often had to rewind and listen again as my thoughts would drift when I got bored of his voice. The information was thoroughly engaging enough to make up for this however.
What a book. Brilliant mind. Great research. A look at the future if we don't ponder the past
Very interesting subject matter and full of examples relating to the negative influence of organized religion. However, the performance was a challenge to follow. The author / narrator started the sentences with a loud and lispy emphasis which forced me to turn the volume down and then trailed off to a whisper which left me wondering how the sentence ended. I quit trying to keep up and just did my best to follow.
I don't know of anyone who could state the case against religion better than Christopher. This book is a must read for everyone theist and atheist alike. It makes me sad when I think about the future debates of which he will not be apart of, denying his admirers the pleasure of watching him rationally and systematically destroy his opponents. Gone too soon, but never forgotten.
Retired Political Science professor from a community college. Especially like Legal Thrillers.
The book seems to be well researched, still I found it to be disappointing. I had hoped that it would concentrate on philosophical arguments for atheism, instead the author concentrated on historical arguments against religion and its dangers.
I agreed with nearly all of what the book goes on about, but his voice is hard to hear sometimes since it goes from soft to loud with an annoying ebb and flow of his voice.
The best, #1 I've heard.
It tears apart the illusions of power and religion.
His sardonic wit and amazing use of English.
It made me wish I hadn't been abused as a child with religion.
The people who don't like his reading either aren't used to English accents or need to hear a boring radio voice. The material is rich and requires listening and in some cases re-listening to have it sink in.
I read books, fix computers, read books, fix my truck, read books, enjoy time with my wife and kids, and I read books.
How can we work towards a society that always asks, "is that true?" That would be such a good place to be.
