Hitchens, who came on my radar, sadly, only as a result of his recent passing, is a great narrator of his own work. The writing is thouroughly researched and clearly structured to make its fascinating point. All organized religions are equally scrutinised and deconstrusted to expose their dangerous and progress-stunting effects.
This is a great audiobook to send to that relative who bangs on about faith.
I listened to it over a week of work
Overall the writing is funny and evocative of 60's New York. The passages where the technical details of the forgery process is described are very interesting.
Dan Butler's performance is very good. reflecting the swagger and smirk in the writing.
I could not listen to the end. It wasnt worth the time to get so little about the forgery process which takes up maybe 5% of the book. The rest is a catalogue of macho (and highly unlikely) petty crimes, interactions with famous people, and sexual conquests, in each of which he is invariably the street-smart hero who comes out on top.
