reading Christopher Hitchens recommendations ?

Going on a semi-holiday next week to a cottage. I want to read some Christopher Hitchens but don't know where to start. Can anyone recommend ?
I was thinking either Arguably: Essays or God is Not Great as our local library has both.

Arguably would be a very good place to start, IMHO.

I can recommend God is not Great. Quick read. I read it recently just before Hitchens died. Was the first book I have read of his.

Ha ha... a tie now. Well, since they're both at the library I'll take them both out and let my rum soaked vacation attention span make the choice for me.

Read God is not Great. Found it repetitious although I agreed with everything Hitchens said. Seems so obvious to me that it really wasn't worth the time to read it.

While I am not an overly religious person, If I had authored that book, I would have done it under pseudonym just in case I was wrong.
