Fascinating subject, poor writing
on 24 April 2014
This book is a strange beast - the subject is fascinating but the writing is terrible. Although Sweeney may be a very good investigative journalist, and perhaps his other books are better, in Church of Fear he is incredibly repetitive. If I hear the phrases 'space alien satan' or 'exploding tomato' again I shall punch whoever utters them. All this is not helped by the typos that litter the Kindle edition, I felt as though I was reading a rough draft rather than a published book. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book but it certainly has weak points.
