Love C. Hitchens, enjoyed his previous book and this one but it is almost unbearable to listen to his voice. But great book otherwise and please get well CH.
I was expecting a little more depth and certainly more subtle analysis of politics and philosophy. He is certainly a clever and well read man who can verbally joust with the best of them--unfortunately for me I didn't find any remarkable insight that could justify the length of this book.
If you are liberally minded you probably will enjoy his (not too original) skewering of the usual suspects. You also might enjoy his relating of some very silly and juvenille word games for which he is quite fond--that is if you have the mind of a adolescent--embarassing and definitely not my cup of tea.
