Who is an easier read for you, Dawkins or Hitchens?
When I first heard about these authors knowing that Dawkins is a biologist, I thought he would be a harder read for me as a laymen. I also thought that Hitchens would be an easier read because he is not a scientist. But the reverse was the case. I found Dawkins much easier to read than Hitchens.
It was a suprise to me. From what I understand, Dawkins says that experts tend to write for experts and not laymen. Hitchens however, seems to not care if you get it or not and seems to treat everything as if it is common knowledge.
What is your take between the two?
