    Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry - and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also to believers who want to understand the so-called new atheism.

    The 99 initial reasons.

    It's consistent and helps to organize thoughts better.


    Do you think Why Are You Atheists So Angry? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I suppose there can be many dealing with different concrete problems.

    Barbara Everette, a homemaker living in a small town in Mississippi, had the perfect life. Perfect husband, perfect children, perfect house, perfect Christian Faith. She cooked and cleaned perfectly and managed all of the chores of the modern suburbanite, toting the kids, running the PTA, teaching kung-fu in the local dojo... perfectly. But perfection has a price, and the day came when Barbara snapped....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A coherent plot and credible characters


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A prayer for Owen Meany


    Would you be willing to try another one of Suzy Jackson’s performances?

    The reader was o.k., the writer was the problem.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Princess of Wands?

    The whole book


    Any additional comments?

    The whole thing belongs to some kind of ideological extreme waspish right with a few elements of the silliest new agey confusions. There's no real "fantasy". Really dreadful.
