Okay the book I forgot to blog about is one I'm stunned that I forgot to blog about.  Under the Banner of Heaven has been on my to-read list for forever and a day.  It frames a tale of the murder of a mother and baby around the tale of the history of Morman religion and more specifically the fundamentalist segment of the Morman religion.  Jon Krakauer can weave a good story.  I left this book feeling a little more informed about the basis of one of the world's largest religions and aching for those women who have been caught in abusive relationaships rationalized by fundamentalist reasonings.  I give this one a 6.

  1. I have this on my Fill In The Gaps list. It's been on my shelf for a while and I would like to read it.
