Not Worth The Price

by Elliot B on May 2, 2013

It was basically like a short term paper, made much longer into a VERY short book.He makes his point well, but it becomes redundent. The shortness of the book, probably meant it had few sales, and caused its over pricing.


to the point

This was a great read. Hitchens concisely presented the " facts on the ground", and contrasted these bare facts with the ever so popular glorified Mother Teresa myths. He let us see the real Mother Teresa, the stern head of an order of nuns, intent on spreading that order and in so doing acting as the dutiful officer of her General, the Pope in Rome. There was never a real need for her to "act saintly" the media, as we see, was all too ready to cast her in that role. What we are left with is the real scoundrel, the opportunistic media which painted a false picture with which it's audience, the public, was all it had to judge her by.
