I was really into this one for about 50 pages but the mistreatment of the young girls made me pretty sick, it was just one thing after another. Another aspect was that I had a very hard time reading it due to the heavy use of italics, can't believe that they published the book that way,very hard on the eyes! It is a well researched book and I always respect thoroughness in research but ti got pretty silly and redundant in many places.and that's what finally wore me down

Well written history of the disturbing side of mormonism.

Very interesting. I knew very little about Mormonism before reading this book. I am a big fan of Krakauer anyway, so I will read anything he writes.

A riveting tale of the Fundamentalist Mormon movement. Very hard to put this book down.
