YEA!!! I just got the audio book of God Is Not Great and it's read by ...
Christopher Hitchens!!! Clap

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

AND ... The God Delusion audio book is read by Richard Dawkins and his wife Lalla Ward. Audio also offered a free 15 minute interview with Richard Dawkins - so I picked that up, too. Thumbsup

And here I thought I was going to miss some inference or get an odd interpretation of something! I really lucked out on these two! Smile

I have that too! And now I'm reading the kindle version and it's like I can totally hear his voice in my head. It's not like I'm hearing voices in my head. Well, I guess it is like I'm hearing voices in my head.

I admit to being a bit turned on by her portions of the book. Truth be told, that's probably why I liked the book so much and decided I was an atheist.

I'm easy like that.

I voted God is Not Great because not only is it my favorite out of the three, but I have the audiobook and it is easily the most listened to one I have.

I can't wait to discuss it with you guys.

I have the God is Not Great audiobook, but I must admit I prefer to read things. Audios go too quickly. Maybe I'm just dumb.

And did you know that Lalla Ward was in Doctor Who as Tom Baker's companion? And did you know she was married to Tom Baker, then they split up and Douglas Adams introduced her to Dawkins and, well, they got married. Love that story. Dawkins steals an ancient, advanced alien's wife and runs off with her.

Also, Lalla Ward once illustrated a book about horoscopes, which I assume may have been a cause for dispute in the marriage early on Tongue.

Sorry, all these nerdy facts are a prerequisite of being a sci-fi fan, or, more specifically, a Doctor Who fan xD.

I'm looking forward to the next three months. I get to read and reread some really great literature.
