I have absolutely fallen in love with this book. Such a fresh and honest take on religion, so many points Dawkins brings up which I have come across in daily life but never been able to spell out eloquently. I think the reason this book causes so much controversy is because it forces people to think about things they'd rather not think about, therefore realise truths; therefore get angry, because those truths don't sit well with their beliefs.

This book has inspired me, and I hope to read more of Dawkins' work in the future. I absolutely adore and feel very much at home with his obvious love for science, the quest for knowledge, nature and the beauty that all these things hold.

In the same way that I, very much an atheist, have read the Bible, I think people of any religion should pick up this book... even if nothing more than a conciousness-raiser.
