5.0 out of 5 stars A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, 31 Jan 2011
I read this book because I enjoyed Into the Wild, both book and film, and because I read in the February issue of Vogue that Kristen Stewart was reading it. She has good taste in my opinion and so I followed. Anyway, being from the UK and so having never had first hand experience with the Mormon religion I was very interested in finding out what the truth was amongst all the media driven ideas that are fed to us. The book reads like a long newspaper article, wonderfully intertwined stories, mixing politics, history and culture of a people and of a religion. Although parts of the book shock, parts also make you understand what, on the surface, you think impossible to understand. Would more then recommend this book, quick to read and highly addictive, one of the best things I have read in a long time!
