An interesting read made more relevant with the whole kerfluffle happening with Romney's Mormonness (Mormonosity?) becoming an issue in the campaign. I didn't plan it that way, but it made the read a bit interesting in that context. With that said, the extremes of any ideology are suspect, and this is no different, and Krakauer did a mixed job recognizing that. It does make me want to read something a lot more balanced regarding the Mormon religion though, as I don't feel like I know enough about it.
