This was a bad first draft with a need for a good edit. Understandably given the end of his life he didn't have a great deal of time and that tragedy struck too soon but his book is so badly written, someone should have had a go at a re-structure and severe slash with a red marker.
A lovely read, testament to Hitchens' intelligence and humour, and which makes me feel his loss all the more. How fascinating his response would have been to this Trump era. For my part l can't quite understand the comments criticising the book as poorly written/edited - l enjoyed his turn of phrase and have no criticism of the book's structure. l did find the American spelling annoying, however. He is a great loss.
