Would you listen to Deconverted again? Why?
I may, simply because of the author's presentation. He is a skilled broadcaster which made this book a joy to listen too.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does Seth Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The authors perspective, and several asides not included in the print edition.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Probably not, just a bit too long, unless you are driving or flying cross country.
Any additional comments?
I am continually searching for skeptic literature in audio form from Audible. This was a fun listen, and it is always great to hear from others that are nearly at the same point in their journey, but there is not much here to further the atheist perspective or arguments beyond Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, Stenger, Barker, Ingersol, and the other heavy weights of the genre. I recommend Seth's offering more for entertainment which can be a welcome diversion from the task of drafting your personal argument.

I must preface this review by first saying that I have been following Seth Andrews on The Thinking Atheist Podcast for a couple years. Seth's own journey, as set out in this book, covers many of the same feelings and thoughts that I also experienced in my journey from religiousity to atheism. I am thankful to Seth and his efforts, thru the Thinking Atheist Podcasts, for helping me on my journey. Seth has relay the basis of his deconversion story many times on the podcast. This book, however, gives us a much more detailed and personal insight into that experience.
I highly recommend this book to theist, skeptic, agnostic, and athiest alike. It will hopefully, get you thinking - which has always been the whole point of The Thinking Atheist.
The Audible version of this book is awesomel. Anyone who has followed the podcast, will quickly come to feel right at home as Seth narrates the book in the same casual, familiar, and humorous way as the podcasts.
This is an excellent companion to the written version.
Seth is a voice of reason anyone on a spiritual journey should listen to.

To all of us who love the work of The Thinking Atheist, this book, especially in it's Audio format, can be just like the never ending continuation of the podcast that we love so much...
Seth is as alive here as he always is, his personal journey and all of the seriousness along the way, together with the many of live's surprises were pleasure for me to get to know.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I am not the author so I would not have the effrontery to change it. This is an odd question.
If you’ve listened to books by Seth Andrews before, how does this one compare?
What three words best describe Seth Andrews’s performance?
Curiously I think it would have been better read by a professional
Could you see Deconverted being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Any additional comments?
It had a lot of interesting material in it, and mounted some cogent arguments which effectively demolish religious concepts, but there was too much of himself in the book and there could have been much more of the interesting material that appears to undermine the arguments of those who argue for the existence of a deity.
Im glad Seth Andrews decided to narrate this himself as he is a great storyteller with an amazing voice. His story is interesting and well told. Ive been a fan of his podcast for some time and love his perspective on most things. The book did not disappoint
Seth Andrews really has a brilliant way of telling a story, everyone should give this book a listen. Highly recommended.
