Sorry but I don't do 'Laugh out loud'
Not until now anyway.
What a genuinely funny book - beautifully told and deliciously mischevous! And you can write that on the side of a bus so it must also be true...

Entertaining and Thought-Provoking
It isn't hard to hand out plaudits to a book which so closely reflects one's own views, but Marcus Brigstocke's God Collar hits all the right buttons and had me muttering "Exactly" and "Too true" on many occasions. True, Brigstocke's book is often a semi-comedic rant, which on occasions can deflect the full force of his argument in favour of a quick laugh here and there; and his posturing about everything from i-Phones to MacDonalds can be taken with a pinch of salt and really doesn't assist or detract from his main point of being a "lapsed atheist". But overall a fine listen, hilarious at times (don't listen to the section on his safari and the lions in a public place), but I couldn't help but think that if had been written by a Professor of Humanities it would be regarded as a classic like The God Delusion. It just wouldn't be as funny.
