Either this book is an easy read or it’s just that interesting, but I’m flying through it. I really like Jon Krakauer as an author. He has an easy-flowing style of writing. In some of the other posts we had discussed that it does seem that all the extra Mormon history is a little superflous to the story though.
While I’m reading I’m trying to make a conscious effort to separate the “characters” in this book from regular everyday Mormons. The last thing I want to do is lump everyone into the same Fundamentalist bucket. At the same time I’m trying to understand why these men felt they had the right to treat others they way they do.
Read to Chapter 16. I’m not sure if there will be a meeting this week. Me and Misc are out of town and so is IL. Please post if you would like to meet.
