I would say this book is worth listening to. He definitely gives you something to think about. Unfortanetly for every good argument he brings up, he also brings up a ridiculous one.
No chapter has more shotty logic and misleading half truths than the one entitled "The American Taliban" in which he gives up much of the credibility he had earned with a chapter that childishly attempts to attack the United States of America. For example, he tries to equate the seven people killed in attacks on abortionists ten years ago to a current religious war. He forgets to mention that there were only seven deaths, and that none were recent.
I'm so glad they're bringing back Marguerite Gavin for the next book.
This book was not at all what I was expecting. I have three complaints.
1. The god of this universe isn't perfect, and doesn't care about anyone, so it doesn't rase any real theological debate. (Which I thought was the point of the book.)
2. I wasn't looking for a sad story, and this is a story about an angry dying man.
3. There were quite a few jabs at America, most of which didn't make much since. If you're not an american I'm sure you won't care, but I am.
This speech is not one of those speeches that poeple will be talking about in ten years, but it's what my circle of frends and colleagues are talking about this election season.
Don't rely on the sound bites you may have heard on the media. I've already heard some of her words taken out of context.
Great book. My only complaint is that after the ending, which was great, he kept on going. It is clear that he only tacked this on so that his second book, which was already writen, would fit into a series.
