  1. I like her. I’ve read two books by her.

    • I’ve only read but one, A Short History of Myth, which is a perfectly good book but it is important more because it is the introductory volume to The Myths series. She seems the sort of writer that I would agree with on most topics so I haven’t sought out any of her books. Though her Islam: A Short History may be a good one. I’ve been feeling pretty ignorant about Islam for a long time.
