Pascal in this work manifests a profound and damaged soul. He is a real giant of the heart and mind. And as a pronounced atheist, i nevertheless regard this work as one of the most insightful and honest books i've ever read. Definitely not for the feint-hearted, this book is very dark in places and also quite fearless. Pascal is a kind of Nietzschean Christian, someone who reflects with his whole being and, unlike most thinkers, someone who actually takes thinking very seriously. A wonderful, if heartbreaking, book.
