    Story
    (251)

    Throughout the course of his ordeal battling esophageal cancer, Christopher Hitchens adamantly and bravely refused the solace of religion, preferring to confront death with both eyes open. In this riveting account of his affliction, Hitchens poignantly describes the torments of illness, discusses its taboos, and explores how disease transforms experience and changes our relationship to the world around us. By turns personal and philosophical, Hitchens embraces the full panoply of human emotions as cancer invades his body and compels him to grapple with the enigma of death.

    Darwin8u says: "Death IS the DARK backing"
    "Don't let this be your first Hitchens book"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Christopher Hitchens and/or Simon Prebble?

    I suppose I would listen to a different Hitchens book, but this was my first. I don't know anything about him, and I don't think this was the place to start


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going back to Thomas Sowell books


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Simon is good, I like the way he narrated the book.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Christopher Hitchens’s life?

    I would have prefered to know of his political beliefs, stories of his life, not death, and I don't care that he was an athiest. When I say I don't care that he was an athiest, I mean I literally don't care or want to hear about it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone unless they were a serious Hitchens fan.
