Here's the thing. I'm an Atheist, and read this book for the simple fact that we all need answers. I enjoyed the way this book was written but it only strengthened my belief or lack-there-of that there is not a "god". To me, this is purely fiction. The book actually angered me in some spots. Simply because there were no real answers just more dancing around the fact that no one really knows if there is a god or not. I gave it three stars simply because I did enjoy the way it was written, and like I said...it's all fiction to me.
