The entire book is written in script form with very few descriptives, just a few pencil drawings with flawed perspective lines and a simple line reintroducing the park and picnic table each time. It is truly boring in it's repetition and could have benefited from a serious rewrite by someone more able to describe scenery, people, thoughts, emotions and other nuances. This style hinders any enjoyment of the book.
Secondly, the ideas that the book pushes, girls are ready to marry when they grow breasts, something that the author has denied saying many different places but is in the book. He advocates fathers making the arrangements of who will marry and when without much input from the breast-spouting young gals. The entire book is laden with very juvenile terms for sex and you get the feeling that the author is nothing more than a big creep sitting around thinking about sex, but in a godly marriage-based way. Imaging young married couples having sex does not make it any less uncomfortably creepy than an old guy viewing a pornographic movie.
One of the other very disturbing ideas in this book besides marrying your daughter off as soon as she sprouts breasts is the idea that no marriage license should be obtained, that all it takes to be married is two kids declaring that they are married while the pimp-daddy-patriarchs pray over them in the park. Effectively cutting off things such as rights of inheritance, receiving the dead partner's social security payments and any other number of benefits you must have a valid state marriage license to obtain.
But here's the real rub. It's fathers arranging common law sexual liaisons for their underage daughters. How is this not considered 'pimping' and not illegal somehow? Would they not be guilty of solicitation of facilitation of statutory rape?
Bottom line: Book desperately needs a rewrite and a good editor even without the terribly damaging and possibly illegal theology. Don't buy this thing because it's available for a free download many places online.
