    After two decades of searching for the answers to these and many more of man’s deepest questions, Craig Beck discovered something amazing and life changing. It took a complete loss of faith and disillusionment with religion to force a dramatic change in his path that revealed not only the answers to those burning questions but also the secrets to life as we dream it to be - full of abundance, happiness and love.

    If you could sum up The God Enigma in three words, what would they be?

    Powerful, Informative, Enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There really isn't a character per say. The author speaks about finding the answers to his questions through silence and the soul of your mind.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the Jehovah Witnesses came to his door.. THE BEST!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was shocked.. I found someone else who has had the same questions answered in the same way I have before.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have an open mind and questions about who, what, when, where and why God.. you will enjoy listening to this book!

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    "Nice bit of Religious History"

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The author does a nice job going back in history to help you understand his reasons why God is not great.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    As an Atheist, I love these kind of books and would love to see more of them made into audio books, like Sam Harris's book The End of Faith and his response book.. Letter to a Christian Nation.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    He does! I like his little comments at the end of the chapters, and the way he has layed out his book in catagories on who, what, when, why and how be have come to accept such nonsense as truth.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The Author narrated the book. What I like about that is the personality of the author shines through and it feels more like he is telling you a story rather than reading you a book. What I didn't care for was that at times he would talk to fast. He has a nice british accent, but if you are not familiar with some of the slang or accent of words it can have ya scratching your head saying to yourself..what did he just say? So I did a lot of rewinding to make sure I heard it right. If you try to slow the speed of the narration down it is miserable..


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I think books like this should be a MUST READ for all humans, that way you can make an educated decision on what you believe or chose not to believe in.
