Catherine Amos Do your own homework.
Maren Fischer The tone of this book is anti-religion in general. It is not well-researched, and Krakauer generalizes the traits of a few fundamentalists and zealots and applies them to the fourteen million members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He also takes historical events out of context, and shows a lack of familiarity with even the bible, confusing the Laban of the Bible for the Laban of the Book of Mormon (two different people who lived hundreds of years apart.) Anyone who thinks that this is well-researched and impartial should learn something about the LDS church and its people.
Alison Whiteman Megalomaniacs. If you live in a world governed by black and white rules, what can there be? It is comforting to so many to have absolute answers to any question. I think you mean "analyze" two characters. I could sum up the men in this book as oppressive, sexist violent narcissists who want to destroy the laws of this nation. Tax evasion is not amusing.
Keith Andrew this is a great book. the lafferty brothers are scumbags. ron lingers on death row, where he'll most likely die. they don't execute people in utah like they do in texas. krakauer did his research. learned plenty about lds im glad i did.
