5.0 out of 5 stars Hard going? oh dear!, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Idiot (Kindle Edition)
A masterpiece! The Idiot is the story of one of western literature's damned characters and the book beautifully written... for some I guess hard going because it has the kind of heart and soul which is not always recognised by all...

1.0 out of 5 stars If you open your mind too much your brain will fall out!, 10 Feb. 2009
I guess if you're looking for reasons NOT to believe in evolution then this book will be of use to you... personally I found it arrogant, ignorant and just plain depressing (it didn't even have enough spirit to stir some fire inside)If your mind is truly open and you wish to question Darwin you will find better writings than these mediocre meanderings... Darwin on trial? Yeah right!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Atheist Rocks not Rants!, 9 Feb. 2009
As a deconstruction of the major religeons this book is marvelous. Easy to understand, difficult to put down, a clear, witty and powerful put down on organised religeons...

1.0 out of 5 stars Same old Ham!, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The Lie: Evolution (Paperback)
Same old Ham, same old prejudices... offers nothing new in his arguement and frankly it's tedious and quite pathetic!
