Over 150 reviews and counting!
We are grateful for every review. Even the negative ones, since—yes, this is a boast—their sparsity only calls attention to the 90 percent that are positive. We’re aware of well over 150 reviews, but most (138 of them, to be exact) appear on Amazon. (JAN 27 UPDATE: Now it’s 139 on Amazon.)
The latest five-star* review comes from fellow ex-polygamist wife Stephany Spencer. There can be no higher compliment than from someone who has been through it:
I don't usually do book reviews, for lack of time. But this book was so good I listened to it straight through, on Audible, and also bought the book! I am an Ex-FLDS, Escapee of Joel LeBaron's cult, and a recovering Mormon. So I found the story, humor, and satire extra super, given that I could relate to it all firsthand!
Still so rebbed up from this excellent and well-written book, to help come down from my high after having listened to it straight through non-stop, I had to write a bit about how I think it is one of the best books I've ever listened to -- a classic. The narrator, also, couldn't have been better! I only wish I had words and time to give it the best review any expert writer could.
It not only is a true view of what polygamy and Mormon cults are all about, but gives some good advice, too, on how to avoid one -- or how to get out of one if you find yourself in one.
*ADDENDUM: This post originally said Stephany gave us only four stars. We appreciate her pointing out the error. We also appreciate the stars.
