"The best of the recent rash of atheist manifestos." (Publishers Weekly)
"Effortlessly witty and entertaining as well as utterly rational." (Booklist)
Incredibly quotable, clever, witty, ruthless. So pretty much like any Christopher Hitchens writing.
Sadly this is his only narration.
miss Mr Hitchens, there's people that are still in need of a Hitch slap. it's quite true, religion does poison everything, but my problem is not with people of faith, but with religious people. understanding the difference is understanding one another.
Barbara G. Harris, M.D.
Enjoyed the content of the book but I had a hard time understanding Christopher Hitchens. I thought that his speech was fast and muddled.
I truly enjoyed listening to Christopher Hitchens reading his work. There is some of the content that I would like to look up in the sources and for that the written version allows for easier referencing.
I am not at all disappointed that I bought this Audio book.
I had read the God Delusion by Dawkins and was concerned that this would simply be a reworking of the same material. I thought God is Not Great dealt with the subject in a more approachable manner, even though the criticism is more scathing.
The presentation makes it feel like you are sitting in a room chatting with Christopher.
Incredibly difficult to single out any particular titbit. Perhaps the fact that he proves the premise of the book for every instance of "god".
The writing is to the point, delicately phrased, and gives the reader cutting clarity into the writer's review of religion in the world. The theme is beautifully repeated as a concluding point in various chapters--"once again, religion poisons/ruins everything."
The music held such an eerie yet peaceful mood between chapters.
Amazing speaker. Love hearing his work in his own words. The only frustrating part was that I struggled to hear him clearly at times--only when he spoke partcidularly fast. But that in no way took away from the fantastic content.
Made my brain juices dance with knowledge.
I don't think it was a time well spent listening to this audiobook. I must say that English is my second language and I had trouble understanding what he was saying. I ended up going to the library and reading the book as I listed the book. Sometimes, it sounded like he was drunk.
I think it is an eye opener. I learned new things about the history of religion
I don't think the narration matched the pace of the story.
Yes, the book woke up my desire to learn more about history and the human condition. It inspire me to create my own purpose in life.
Yes, Hearing Christopher Hitchens' masterpiece in his own, amazing speaking voice is very worthwhile addition to this great piece of work.
No characters not being a novel, but favorite chapter is "is religion Child abuse", a very thought compelling pro life argument not stemming from religion, but from science and the rules of logic
He is literally one of the most prolific public speakers of the recent past,and for good reason his and amazing luscious voice, brilliant vocabulary make this a fabulous combination. You can tell he seems to be enjoying the thought of people listening to him speak.
The Anti-viral for the ultimate virus
Excellent read, and even better listen
Your audible way of doing things sucks up so much memory it's not worth the almost 4 dollars extra to the book... This book in particular I tried to download while it shows a positive download and I can't hear it I do not see from my end of it the little earphones icon and I'll never do this again! Thank god for voice over making audible quite unnecessary and cheaper too.
