I thought this would be Thomas Paine’s work, but instead, it was a commentary on that work by Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens is a staple on talk shows and lecture circuits. It seems that what he has to say resonates with a lot of people. I’m not one of them. I wanted to read Paine’s original work so that is my mistake that I picked up the wrong work, but being the stubborn oaf that I am, once I started it I wanted to finish it. I don’t like leaving things half done. I had to slog through this book and didn’t really enjoy any of it. I can’t recommend this work to anyone, but it won’t stop me from trying Hitchens other works like God is Not Great.
