5.0 out of 5 stars Non-emotional telling of his life! June 28, 2011
I really appreciated the way Abe told his story, as a memoir without adding much of his own personal emotions to make the story more dramatic. Knowing Abe most of his life, I know he had some pretty intense moments in the cult and that he managed to go through all that and come out with such a balanced perspective on his past makes me respect him all the more. It was fun to read over incidents, about people and places I had either been at during the time Abe wrote about, or knew about from being in the general area, a walk down memory lane that didn't cause me to feel so depressed and angry about the past as is sometimes the case. Thanks Abe for recording our past like that!

3.0 out of 5 stars Editor? Is there an editor in the house? February 8, 2013
By Vicky
I adore memoirs and love reading tales of struggle and overcoming obstacles, but this was far from one of the best I've read. As others have mentioned, the spelling and grammatical errors are numerous (every page) and it's difficult to enjoy the story when you're constantly irritated that a "writer" doesn't know how to avoid run-on sentences, inappropriate capitalizations, etc. Beyond that, the telling is very dry and emotionless. There is no sadness, there is no humor, there's no feeling of any kind. It's just "we lived here, we did this, we moved here, we did that". Sigh. The only redeeming quality is that it's a first-person memoir about a child raised in a cult setting, which makes it interesting despite all its flaws.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for all January 23, 2013
By Piet

This is a book I can recommend for all people to read. It is the biography of an unusual character that dealt with the ordeals of life in an astounding manner. I will read it again and enjoy it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dry telling of one man's nightmare childhood. March 19, 2013
By Daniel
Verified Purchase
The dry telling of what could be so easily sensationalized felt very real and honest to me. Too many memoirs out there seem to make mountains of mole hills. In my life I have found that truth is much stranger than fiction and this book proves the point. A good addition for the searcher out there or the student of odd religions and their effect on members and their children.
