    The boring debate between fundamentalist believers and non-believers is finally moved on by Alain de Botton's inspiring new book, which boldly argues that the supernatural claims of religion are of course entirely false - and yet that religions still have important things to teach the secular world.

    Would you listen to Religion for Atheists again? Why?

    Yes I would. It is easy to follow de Botton's arguments but he says quite a lot and I will probably listen again


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was no main character


    What about Kris Dyer’s performance did you like?

    Yes he sounded a lot like de Botton himself


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

    no

    This is a journey of both escape and discovery for four exquisitely different women, a month of bliss and privacy for four weary souls. Their refuge on the Italian Riviera provides the perfect backdrop for a story about the search for spiritual harmony within and without.
