Wittier and sharper than The God Delusion. Hitchins tears into the Abrahamic faiths and exposes the hypocrisy, sexism, xenephobia and downtight nonsense at their heart. Essential reading.
Just an insanely wonderful book. Hitchens can be strident and even violent in his writing, but really, his points are completely valid. Should be required reading for, well, everyone. Just plain everyone. His arguments are well thought out and beautifully presented and his call to put modern religions into the same pigeon hole as children's fables is so very necessary in this evil, war torn age of religious fundementalist crazy people.
Couldn't have said it better myself. I've always been disgruntled that official religions have spoiled any sense of awe or wonder in what we have right here and now...which is pretty darned good as far as paradise goes.
Wonderfully written essay on why religion poisons everything. He does not focus on one religion and he sets out his reasons for his theories. A lot of people would disagree but people who get angry about this book would only prove what the author is trying to say.The author quotes form all religious texts from the main 3 and then from lesser known religions. Humour is used but the points are made convincingly. Excellent
