It's not unheard of to reboot later parts; for instance, Highlander III ignored/replaced II, Halloween H20 replaced everything after Halloween 3, etc. Still, Smith was taking a real chance.
As it is, I'm not sure how I feel about it. Torah III: Book of Mormon moves the action out of the Middle East and into the Americas. Some people will find the new locales refreshing, but for myself, I'm not sure I like the story being shifted so far - I happen to be into Arabic culture, Egyptian mythology, etc. On the other hand, this reboot brings aliens into the story and makes it into something of a sci-fi epic about alien gods long before people like Charles Fort, Erich von Daniken or Zecharia Sitching postulated similar theories, so in a way this novel is well ahead of its time.
I would say if you don't mind the shift in locales, and enjoy good sci-fi, this reboot is worth checking out. Otherwise, just stick to the original.
Not by me.
Orson Scott Card's writing got me curious about Mormonism, but the main Mormon book is too stylized for me to follow withouit more effort than I want to put in

After studing the Book of Mormon for 30 years, I have found it is truly a work of fiction and is NOT scripture. It was written by Joseph Smith and members of his family. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Sandra K. Sinks
