Customer Review

on 18 March 2014
I had plenty of empathy with the author, having been brought up in exactly the same God-fearing, beautiful hymn-singing Welsh valley tradition, and had made the same journey away from that theocratic stronghold on life, so I looked forward to Mr Griffiths's account of his journey and his arguments. I was not disappointed; Mr Griffiths has an excellent command of language and uses it to great flowing effect, leading us all the way from his early strong believer to the atheistic position. The book is an excellent read for those who like following a thoroughly logical exposition. My only caveat was the feeling that all the ground had been previously covered by most of the authors to whom Mr Griffiths rightly gives credit for his own liberation: Dawkins, Stenger, Hitchens and others, and I felt that there was not enough that was new and original in his approach. That said, if anyone has not read those earlier authors, or wants to reinforce their output, "Slaying the Dragon" is a superlative read.
