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.
