    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Story

    This story is true and is a chilling example of mental illness. It is important to know that this IS NOT how this Mormon fundamentalist group believes. These were two brothers who were extremists like those found in every walk of life. The story is still an important one. It was well read by the narrator and was interesting from begining to end.

    On the eve of the inauguration, Kent Davidson and the members of his Sunday school class realize their concerns about the future of America are very real possibilities. They expect the reckless actions of the federal government to bring about a collapse of the country's economic and social structure. Likewise, they believe the direction in which the country is going will embolden the terrorists to resume attacks on U.S. soil.

    Overall

    When I listened to the sample of this book it was terrible but the story sound interesting so I bought it. I figured it had to be better than it sounded. I was wrong!. First, this is a very poorly written book...one of the worst I have heard. Was there no editor? It really is a shame because it could have been good. But even if it had been a well written book, the narration is beyond bad! I really tried to listen to it. I gave it several chances. Now I'm just kicking myself...HARD...for wasteing my hard earned money on this. If you are considering this one, don't bother!
