    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"
    "Interesting, but still lacking."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Magic of Reality in three words, what would they be?

    If I could sum up the book in 3 words, I'd have to use 4; Read The God Delusion.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I rather enjoyed the brief nature of the book, it was sort and to the point. That being said it doesn't delve deep enough into the topics to sate my thirst for knowledge. It's an excellent appetizer for other books he's written, but as a main course it isn't filling.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was great, I rather like that it comes across as more of a lecture than a book. You feel engaged and want to continue from start to finish. Their work is consistent and, with the exception of Professor Dawkins' moments of near-childish excitement when discussing rainbows (which incidentally was very good narration, emotion is welcome) .was par for the course.
