Nothing wrong with the book but Audible software is a Rude Goldberg collaboration on steroids. WHAT a nightmare! Phone support? From what planet. Frankly I might get a better connection with a string and two Dixie cups. I do not need a career! I already HAVE a career!
This is delightful listening, and even if you are not familar with Hitchens, this is a great introduction to his thought. I think I took him for granted while he lived and now that he is gone, I was grateful to get these insights into his thoughts. He makes you think. He doesn't ask you to agree with him but you had better be quite logical in defending your ideas. And, he can be so funny. We are poorer without him but at least we have his writings. I highly recommend it.
Less pretentious tone. Less rambling would be good too.
If you listen closely you can take away something, though not much.
Put this book in its on category "For Intellecutals Only"
yes. I like the way he thinks.
His discussion of his time in Bosnia during that war
Always look for the truth.....which may take a long time
The mind of Christopher Hitchens.
I would have rather Christopher read it himself. James Adams sounds like a blow-hard.
No, James Adams must be taken in small doses.
In all honesty I haven't finished listening to the book - I will have to read it on my kindle.
The book is very well written and done in a wonderfully literate manner, but the narrator tried to hard to sound High minded, with awkward pauses and strange emphasis on words. This may be one of those books that you really need to visually read.
