Still thinking about this one...and probably for awhile. One thing I know that I appreciate about Jon Krakauer is, while he writes non-fiction, he has a clear point of view. I know what I am reading is information through a filter. I know that when I read other non-fiction, of course, but to have the author make that clear is refreshing.

The other thing I am prepared to say is that I got quite an education about the history of Mormon. I remember glossing over it in various history classes, but I am surprised that the founding of a major religion/sect in my country, within the last 200 years didn't get more press.
