Not an easy read. Krakauer’s been praised for his meticulous research on many subjects, and his insights into the Fundamentalist sects of Mormonism are no different. The main story focus’ on the Lafferty brothers, who received a message from god to kill an innocent woman and baby. He unravels the details of that double murder, but also delves into the history of the LDS church, polygamy, god-mandated violence, religious zeal and so much more.
In a word, engrossing.
