Reads more like an email than a book
on June 17, 2013
This was a book that was recommended to me through the Amazon Kindle recommendation after reading the excellent "God is not Great" by C Hitchins. This was a very easy easy, because it reads like an email Greta has just written to you.
The tone of the book is definitely passionate and filled with language that is more apt in a less formal communication than a book or article. The points of view on offer is nothing really new if you have read a lot of previous books on this subject, they are merely presented in a manner that feels more conversational.
Now that said, it does make reading this book very quick - I nailed it in one day. Where Dawkins and Hitchins will present a long winded scientific explanation of a given side of the debate, Greta presents all the arguments in a bumper-sticker single sentence format. I highlighted many pithy clever remarks and retorts that are definitely worthy of a read.
Overall, good book, maybe a little high priced for what it is, but worthy of adding it your collection.
