    Story
    (452)

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Mark says: "A Brilliant Personal Journey of Discovery"
    "Letting go while laughing"
    Overall

    Julia has a great conversation voice and is easy to understand. The subject of "letting go of God" is of much importance in our current world plight. She doesn't push her atheist ideas in your face- if you're just starting on your path in looking for others opinions on religion and God or gods this is one of the best ways to start- with a good laugh at something too many hold too dear.

    Story

    Ishmael is an utterly unique and captivating spiritual adventure which redefines what it is to be human. We are introduced to Ishmael, a creature of immense wisdom. He has a story to tell, one that no human being has ever heard before. It is the story of man's place in the grand scheme, and it begins at the birth of time. This history of the world has never appeared in any schoolbook. "Does the earth belong to man?" Ishmael asks. "Or does man belong to the earth?"

    Eric says: "Unabridged PLEASE!"
    "Earth was made for humans to conquer and rule:"
    Overall

    The Queen lyrics, “We are the champions, no time for losers because we are the champions” came to mind after I first read this book about six years ago. And I’ve been reading Quinn’s books from then on. Daniel Quinn has a way with words that gets his message across in such a way that anyone can understand. The message of Ishmael is philosophical and maybe the most important idea a single person has ever managed to put into such a clever fiction work.

    The reading on this audio recording is pretty impressive too, although I’m not a big fan of audio books myself, I only decided to get this version so I could share Quinn’s message with friends who don’t like to read.
