Christopher Hitchens ' amazing book is beautifully read by the author. One does not have to be an atheist to find much to ponder, to consider, and hopefully, allow to evaluate ones beliefs against rationality and reason.
Hard to argue with the content which was comprehensive and well arranged. However, Hitchens gives the impression of being in a hurry to be done with the narration. He frequently speaks too quickly, and runs words together, so as to leave little time for the listener to distinguish which words were used, let alone gain an overall grasp of a passage. He also trails off his sentences, so that the last few words are often inaudible.
Well researched. Well structured. Wonderfully delivered. Hitch makes the case that there is a war being fought and provides the weapons of historical understanding, reason and rationalism to arm us against superstition-based decision makers and theocracy. Better still, he leads the charge with flair and gusto.
This is an excellent book but due to Mr Hitchens love of drink, it gets a bit slurry at times. He was a brilliant man and has powerful points to share. I believe anyone looking for an analytical view on Religion need look no further. He's rather funny too!
Incredibly quotable, clever, witty, ruthless. So pretty much like any Christopher Hitchens writing.
Sadly this is his only narration.
