Very good book. Well written but horrific life of a Scientology member. I have rethought my admiration of some actors/actresses of Hollywood.
riveting and eerie view of life inside scientology. couldn't stop listening! now I want to read everyone's accounts of this cult! great narration
Yes. It is a good book, but I don't think they would read it.
Jenna. She showed a lot of guts, but not until the end.
Didn't have a favorite.
Was going to stop reading and send it back, but got through it till the end. Seems she was happy where she was. To tell the truth she kept saying how shy she was about the interview and protesting after leaving, but if she did what she said to the auditors by smashing the cans and yelling at them doesn't seem shy to me. Glad she knows she is out.
This was a truly great Audible read. It was well-narrated, and the story is one that will stay with me for a long time. I simply couldn't turn it off. For anyone like me, left with a lingering curiosity about the Scientology cult after reading Leah Remini's book, this is the book for you. Jenna walks us through her life in the cult from a young age until she leaves, and her words will make you laugh, cry and cheer, all the way.
I knew Scientology wasn't good, but I had no idea how bad it could be!!!
Wow, thinking of parents abandoning their children at such a young age just twists my heart into knots!!! Finding out that Scientology views children as small adults lends credence to my view you have to be somewhat damaged to buy into all their doctrine.
And imprisoning adults for not obeying the group rules? Yikes! Wouldn't us regular folks call that kidnapping?
This is an important listen. This girl is telling us her experiences and they are horrendous.
We need to look at the folks who have contributed millions of dollars to this cult as damaged goods. And I'm including all those famous folks like TC and GVS. Do you really want to continue to support this cult by supporting them in their careers? I don't.
Not sure since the author did not read it. I thought maybe the narrators voice was a bit too childlike for authors words and views.
Father, Mother, God - a memoir about Scientology from an outsider. Authors parents were Scientologists but she was not. The authors Mother died from cancer while being taken care of drug-free in a Scientology "home".
Interesting, factual based but influenced by the authors emotions. You wonder why it keeps going on and on, I asked myself why she did not leave sooner when her parents did. It makes Scientology seem like a lot of high school drama.
