5.0 out of 5 stars Hitchens: the World is a poorer place without him, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Long Live Hitch: Three Classic Books in One Volume (Kindle Edition)
I recall seeing Christopher Hitchens on TV and in the short air-time anyone gets to debate anything he did come across as opinionated and a shade outrageous but having read this collection of wonderful books I cannot believe there are many if any writers who are so well read and in a position to speak so authoritatively. Maybe I am influenced by a shared admiration for George Orwell but I cannot wait to read all of his other works. The man was a genius of his time and a great loss to mankind. He cuts through the myths and fables of religion and his essays are a delight to read on a wide range of issues, writers and politicians and reviews books about them which normally I wouldn't read. Despite his criticisms of others and their works he does seem to have enjoyed life and not become a depressed old bore like so many writers. Reading this makes you wonder why so many stupid people are voted into power and how the populations are so ignorant themselves to be taken in and led by politicians and religious leaders whose only real interest is personal power. maybe that is me being cynical? If you want to be stimulated buy these and begin to think for your self.
