An Illustration of Absurdity
Would you listen to The Nonbeliever's Guide to the Book of Mormon again? Why?
Yes. As a former Mormon, there's a lot of angst involved in trying to leave the religion. You get lots of judgement and embarrassment from Mormon friends and family, and it can really be depressing. Sometimes, you really need a good laugh. Something to make you remember some of the reasons you left, and something to lighten your mood when people try to make you feel bad for quitting the religion.
Which scene was your favorite?
I was completely surprised by Chapter 21. Up until Chapter 21, everything had been a humorous poking and mocking of the silliness that is The Book of Mormon. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but it really was the gem of the entire book. To hear and MD suggest a medical reason for why Joseph Smith did the things he did was really fascinating, and not something I have ever heard suggested, before. I REALLY responded to that chapter!
Any additional comments?
The narrator was delightful. He had just the right tone, and his timing and delivery kept me chuckling the whole book long. He also did a pretty good job at pronouncing unique Mormon words correctly. I've listened to books before, where the narrator had not been coached properly on pronunciations, and it affected my enjoyment of those books. Rich Miller did great. I suspect this book will have most appeal to people who are former Mormons. So getting the pronunciation right is important for the insider audience.
