I thoroughly enjoyed reading this trip through the wonderland of America's religious cults and fads, and I gobbled it up within 24 hours. I wish her book on haunted houses were available via Nook too. My only wish is for better citation. For example, she makes claims about marriage practices of the FLDS which I have never heard before and somewhat question, but the reader isn't told the source of the information. Also -- and alas, this is true of very many books these days -- she would benefit from a good editor for coherence and organization. Even a good proof-reader would help. As for the one star reviewer complaining about Stollznow's "snarky" tone, well, s/he has a point -- the humor of the material speaks for itself; no need to belabor it. On the other hand, the occasional "snarkiness" is well-balanced by Stollznow's compassion for the people she observes. All in all, a fun read for readers like me who love this kind of exploration and debunking.
