If your a fan then this book is for you. If your a liberal, tread carefully. Possibly the most entertaining of all Ann's work, she takes her usual sharpened pen and simply let's the liberals stab themselves with it. While I enjoyed the entire book her section demonstrating the lefts hopeless fascination with Darwinism is dead on. Look out for the fundamentalist label. I can't wait for her next book. Definitely worth the download.
As a fan of Stephen King I can say this one is classic King. I wished he had continued the story a bit longer but I thought it was a overall fun listen. Great premise & story.
I have no doubt that the author is both sincere in his beliefs and very likable but this is a likable christians sales pitch for evolution. He dismisses "perceived gaps" in the fossel record with no elaboration. Says that the most complex biological structures can be explained through Darwinian evolution and dismesses parts of the bible that undermine his beliefs as alagory. He is surely an expert on the humnan Gnome and a scientist but as for those things spirtial he seems to be gasping for things that will combine his two competing ideaologies.
The authors explaination of God creating a world and leting random mutations and evolution create the outcome seems to me to be a build it and forget it kit for God.
The first 1/2 discussion of the human Gnome was interesting but the evolution rehash left me flat.
Not a bad listen but not what I had hoped for.
I have listened to hundreds of hours of audio books and this could be the easiest yet. The book is well written and the performance of the narrator made the listen fun and thoughtful. Lord Foulgrin's comments to his hated minions are like a mirror for the Christian listener. His battle plan for the destruction of any and every human is both humorious and disturbing. Give it a listen and see if you see yourself anywhere.
