©2007 Christopher Hitchens; (P)2007 Hachette Audio
"The best of the recent rash of atheist manifestos." (Publishers Weekly)
"Effortlessly witty and entertaining as well as utterly rational." (Booklist)
Well written, concise, and moving. Narration was clear and easy to follow. A must for read/listen for everyone combating the evils religion espouses, and powerful antidote for the ubiquitous god virus!
What I liked best were the parts that I could actually hear and understand. I found it extremely frustrating when the author/narrator would mumble the end of a sentence leaving me guessing as to what was being said. Certain chapters seemed worse than others.
Because of the narration issues I would recommend the print version.
My first audio book and I made a great choice! Not only a great book but being read by Hitch made it all the better!
If I had 9 hrs to spare I would have! Had to settle for 40 minute sections during my commute.
This wonderful work is an eloquent dissertation of the reality that god and religion are create by man and enforced by tyranny. Science and reason are prevailing to evolve our species out of the caves of theological tyranny.
A fantastic listen narrated and written by a brilliant mind. Hitchens gives an informed look at the history of religion. so much information that it will be worth another listen or two. recommended
Among all of the so called "new atheists", Hitchens is perhaps the most direct and engaging. This book pulls no punches in its literate, and vicious takedown of all things spiritual. Best of all, it goes beyond tearing down, to offer a vision of what we as a species could achieve if we would jettison our primitive fears and rituals. An excellent book, performed perfectly by the author.
