Got a nice customer review on Audible for the audiobook version of Coming Out Atheist: How To Do It, How to Help Each Other Do It, And Why! Five stars out of five for story, performance, and overall. (In fact, the audiobook now has 13 customer ratings on Audible, with an average of 4.40 stars out of five.) Here’s what Zhuge had to say:
“Addresses Major Issues Head On”
If you could sum up Coming Out Atheist in three words, what would they be?
What other book might you compare Coming Out Atheist to and why?
Greta’s book “Why are You Atheists So Angry” is definitely the right companion to this book. This book is more for atheists, though the religious can gain a lot from it too. This other book is the reverse, theists can learn a lot from it, though highly recommended for atheists too. Greta is unwilling to let any tough issue go, be it sexism in atheism or the harm done even by the most benign liberal religions.
Which character – as performed by Greta Christina – was your favorite?
Greta performed herself admirably, of course! Her narration is excellent, and it feels like she’s talking with you the entire time. She has an excellent voice, and listening to her is very enjoyable.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Many of the stories Greta tells are very powerful, and often very funny. But the discussion of some of the real troubles in the atheist community can be hard.
Any additional comments?
Greta is on point. She addresses atheism not just for white guys like myself, but for all people, men and women, White, Hispanic, Black, Asian, cis, trans, gay, straight, etc. Highly recommended for all atheists to listen too, and religious people too, to understand the different perspectives we all have on atheism and being atheists.
