Customer reviews

I found this book to be utterly fascinating and compelling. Christopher Hitchens makes a strong case for supporting his subtitle: How Religion Poisons Everything. A very strong case. Although, I find it hard to imagine people with unwavering faith in God reading more than three pages of this book. But I must admit, my thinking closely paralleled that of Hitchens even before I read this book. And his thinking is much more eloquent. He's a talented writer. I can't remember a more gripping work of non-fiction. Not only is Christopher Hitchens well-read (he's read the bible more than once as well as translations of the Koran), but he's also well-traveled as well. He backs up his beliefs with many anecdotes from his own life (he's also the recipient of many death threats from the more fanatical believers.) He writes clearly and forcefully. I found his dissection of the "Intelligent Design" position extremely well done and even smile-producing (and after all, it's an easy target). His sense of humor shows through as well as his modesty. Out of curiosity, I briefly perused some of the many customer comments about this book on Amazon. Not surprisingly, he manages to split his reviewers into two distinct camps. Put me in the five-star camp.show more
