    Richard Dawkins, the world’s most famous evolutionary biologist, presents a gorgeously lucid, science book examining some of the nature’s most fundamental questions both from a mythical and scientific perspective. Science is our most precise and powerful tool for making sense of the world. Before we developed the scientific method, we created rich mythologies to explain the unknown. The pressing questions that primitive men and women asked are the same ones we ask as children. Who was the first person? What is the sun? Why is there night and day?

    Connie says: "Audio version is superb for us grown-ups"
    "Maybe OK as a children's book."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. There is nothing new in this book, it is very basic and simplistic. It is clearly intended for children, although I'm not sure how the patronizing narration would go over even by children. Maybe especially by children.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't finish it.


    What aspect of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ???s performance would you have changed?

    A more adult style, even if the book is intended for children.


    Do you think The Magic of Reality needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Perhaps a version for adults. I like the concept, but the material was just too simplistic.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a great fan of Richard Dawkins. I think he's done some great stuff over the years. But this one is a miss.
