really liked it
Read in August, 2007

I admit it, I sort of picked this up because I was really obsessed with Big Love on HBO, and I figured a good way to continue my obsession would be to read about the real life Roman Grants and Juniper Creeks and so forth.
This book is engaging, fascinating, and scary as hell. It does a good job of illustrating how religion works on the human mind- often in destructive, terrible ways.
