"Like virtually everything [Hitchens] wrote over his long, distinguished career, diamond-hard and brilliant...vivid, heart-wrenching and haunting--messages in a bottle tossed from the deck of a sinking ship as its captain, reeling in agony and fighting through the fog of morphine, struggles to keep his engines going. " New York Times Book Review
"Stark and powerful.... Hitchens's powerful voice compels us to consider carefully the small measures by which we live every day and to cherish them." Publisher's Weekly (starred)

Hitchens did not make it to the end of the book so it was finished by his wife, therefore the narration's voice is slightly different than his past books, but not that noticeably.
