it was ok
bookshelves: adult-fiction
Read in May, 2009

The main problem I had with the book is that I spent more time trying to figure out the motives of the author -- and what he was trying to say comparing a modern polygamist cult with the early LDS church -- instead of enjoying the plot or the characters. Don't know if that was me or the book. (Probably me.)

Suey Still curious about what I thought? I did a review for this one back in October during its first blog tour. Here's the link:
