    i m not sure why so many people found this depressing it ain t no jude the obscure it s actually the opposite of depressing i think the things people are saying are depressing are things that the book discusses that are actually happening like animal species going extinct and war and overpopulation maybe the people that think it is depressing are themselves involved in isolationist cults that are unaware of their own surroundings it s a pretty interesting read

    I read this book over 6 months ago, and at the time I gave it 4 stars at the time because I didn t think it resonated with me emotionally the same way that Emmons first novel, THE LOSS OF LEON MEAD, had But lately, I have found myself recommending it to so many people And unlike most books, I just keep thinking about it So I had to go back and change my rating.Here s the thing about this book the protagonist isn t likable at the beginning, and his sticking it out over the course of his tran I read this book over 6 months ago, and at the time I gave it 4 stars at the time because I didn t think it resonated with me emotionally the same way that Emmons first novel, THE LOSS OF LEON MEAD, had But lately, I have found myself recommending it to so many people And unlike most books, I just keep thinking about it So I had to go back and change my rating.Here s the thing about this book the protagonist isn t likable at the beginning, and his sticking it out over the course of his transformation takes some work from the reader It s clearly supposed to take work So if you don t want to work as a reader, this might not be your book This is a really brave novel that pays you back for the work by approaching the subject of cult like religion with subtle satire instead of with a hammer, by bringing you along on a journey instead of telling you about it, and by treating you, the reader, like you re smart Five stars to a book that made me think instead of telling me what to think

    Picked up this book on a lark from 826NYC they give me free books sometimes on account of I work for them and it was thoroughly enjoyable He has the level of engagement of Chuck Palahniuk but isn t as crude or base or vulgar or violent The narrative jumps back and forth in time until finally you have a clear picture of the story It s a fascinating account of a man who goes from poor physical shape, a cushy finance job, and absolutely no interest in religion, to being fired, forced into join Picked up this book on a lark from 826NYC they give me free books sometimes on account of I work for them and it was thoroughly enjoyable He has the level of engagement of Chuck Palahniuk but isn t as crude or base or vulgar or violent The narrative jumps back and forth in time until finally you have a clear picture of the story It s a fascinating account of a man who goes from poor physical shape, a cushy finance job, and absolutely no interest in religion, to being fired, forced into joining a religion cult, escalating through its stages very quickly and becoming a healthy, fit believer who finds himselfandembroiled in the group, eventually finding himself in a position he never would have expected.Loved reading this one Never wanted to put it down

    an intellectual thriller with a satirical edge Combine the softauthoritarianism of the white collar workplace with its we are all onebig family psychobabble workshops with a sophisticated nasty religious cult mix of Scientology and Jonestown Creepy but quite funny as well

  5. Tyra Tyra says:

    I liked the premise but not the book I got about 1 3 of the way through and decided it wasn t for me.

  6. Kayla Kayla says:

    This book really surprised me I d heard nothing about it, had no expectations and grabbed it from the library on a whim I have no idea why I m drawn to everything cults latelyThis book is 1984 meets Brave New World meets Peoples Temple which is actually mentioned in the book and I am coincidentally reading Jonestown right now and even though I was unsure in the first 20 30 pages, I thoroughly enjoyed the remainder.

  7. Joe Joe says:

    Very interesting story to say the least However, I couldn t cope with the really long, winding sentences I found it confusing, and wouldn t read another book by this author.

  8. Daniel Sherburn Daniel Sherburn says:

    Not very good, really.

    This was an interesting book I don t think I would do it much justice by trying to relay it s message in my own words, due to the fact that the message will be different for each reader It has many different levels on which the story can be viewed, and touches on some points that not everyone will be comfortable with.Personally, I see this as one of those books you might find yourself recommending to several friends, not only to see what their take on the story is, but to also help finalize yo This was an interesting book I don t think I would do it much justice by trying to relay it s message in my own words, due to the fact that the message will be different for each reader It has many different levels on which the story can be viewed, and touches on some points that not everyone will be comfortable with.Personally, I see this as one of those books you might find yourself recommending to several friends, not only to see what their take on the story is, but to also help finalize your opinion as well

    I loved the questions this raised about faith Namely, Is it okay to posit something as true if it promotes goodness and ultimately does no harm Made me think about my own faith in a new light I ll have to agree with others who have labeled Emmons writing style as too wordy This book lulled me to sleep pretty quickly most nights even though I was engaged in story I don t know that I d be open to reading his other stuff unless I was really, really interested in the topic
