As a fan of Mr Brigstocke's comedy style and someone fascinated with the topic of belief, I expected this would be an enjoyable listen and I was not disappointed. Brutally honest, deeply thoughtful and most importantly genuinely funny, this is a fascinating journey through one man's struggle with both his atheism and the tenets of traditional religion. With lovely personal touches and an open 'no holds barred' approach I found the whole thing incredible engaging. No doubt helped by Brigstocke's superb narration and skills with well-formed arguments (as demonstrated to his fans through years of 'Now Show' rants and 'Argumental') this book is imbued with a real honest charm.There are odd arguments that seem over-repeated or dwelled upon but overall I would not hesitate to call this a 'must listen' audiobook.
I'm a bit of a Marcus Brigstocke fan, I have to say... I love the way he has a good old rant, and tend to agree with his views. In the past, when I've heard him on religion, he has tended to be very negative, so I was surprised that this reading is a lot more balanced than I would have expected. One thing to watch out for though is if you're the kind of person to get a song on the brain, you may be singing away for a while after listening to this one. I had a few nights trying to get to sleep with the song he keeps singing going round and round in my head and cursing Mr Brigstocke!
