A very good book!
on 9 November 2014
The author of this book takes us on a very personal journey to his progression to atheism. He details influences his parents, siblings, religious leaders and friends had on his world view, and the process which enabled him to reject the faith his Bangladeshi community wholeheartedly bought into. It was a process that many atheists, either brought up within a faith or not, can instantly identify with, myself included.
Around the very personal details are the authors arguments which strengthens his assertion of there being no God. He cites scientific and philosophical evidence to explain issues such as love, death, racism, and mental health issues.
I struggle with Hitchens et al, because I find their writing to be very repetitive. I found this book startling, maybe to revealing and honest, and so familiar to my own story. A very good book.
