Good grief, this author certainly managed to hit every square on the bigot's bingo card. There's racism, homophobia, ableism, misogyny and don't get me started on the evangelistic preaching at every available opportunity. Never mind the sensationalist writing and atrocious grammar. Which I suppose I should have anticipated from the book title, but sometimes authors don't get a say in that...

Meaghan What's ableism?

"Ableism" is a form of discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities.

(5 Things about ableism you should know)

Hope that helps! ;)

Kavita I actually didn't come across anything of that sort. The evangelism was there because two of the survivors were religious. There is nothing the author could have done about it. Or do you think he ought to have called them stupid to believe?
