Oliver Wyman reads perfectly, doing justice to the varied characters and the sometimes lofty or esoteric tone of the book. Hearing the Jewish phrasing (and other less vernacular words) aloud was a great treat and wonderful learning experience that I could not create when reading the book.
The book is a fascinating look at some of the "Varieties of Religious Illusion" through an engaging character story. Full of allegory that I'm sure I'm not fully grasping, but I very much enjoyed the presentation of what I did grasp. The plot and setting will be familiar to those in grad school, but only a few things in the book require much extrinsic knowledge for comprehension, thanks to the aside thinking of the main character(s).
Rather thorough in its assessment of faith, the ways in which we believe, and human nature. Not always an easy listen, but well worth the time and thought.
This narration from Oliver (and later the author) makes a stellar companion to the physical book.

Although I am thoroughly enjoying "36 Arguments for the Existence of God" the arguments are way over my head. Oh, I get a point here or there but for the most part my linear mind can't process the authors writing.
However, it is very well written and quite engaging.
