Being from Southern Utah made this "quirky little audio book" particularly funny and entertaining. Visitors to Utah always want to know about polygamy and are usually surprised to learn that not all of the people in Utah practice polygamy. Those of us who live in Utah find the idea of polygamy not only peculiar but interesting that it is somehow tolerated. The author has obviously had a lot of fun depicting an interesting satire on the life and lifestyle of a polygamous community.
Nancy Neptune was my favorite character in the book because she was an outsider who found herself in a whole new world and was determined to make it work.
Each of the characters come to life through the narration which you wouldn't experience if you just read the book. Each of the characters has a unique accent or voice quality that sets them apart and makes them memorable.
When Nancy decided to go against the standards of her community it became apparent that the world was not going to end and no one was going to die; she proved that one person can make a difference and be successful.
I was so intrigued and captivated by this funny little audio book that I didn't want to come in the house from the car; I just wanted to keep driving around the block to hear the end of each chapter. Sometimes, I would even sit in the car in the garage, or drive to a nearby town so I could hear a little more. A trip to the Bank which would normally take 20 minutes would often take me 2 hours!!
I have already recommended this book to some friends, but with the caveat that it may be too restrictive to follow.
Suffering from arthritis in my hands, I was hopeful that following this diet would help relieve the pain. I've been eating vegan for several years and found that I would need to eliminate most of the protein from my diet if I were to follow this diet.
No. I don't know how this plan could be changed or enhanced.
This book ranks among my favorite audiobooks. I listen while walking and this book makes me get out there every day!
The historical account of slavery and bigotry which is still alive and flourishing today.
Livinia was the most memorable character because while she was white, she grew up with the slaves and never formed any bigotry. Her journey is amazing.
This is a very interesting concept about the inception and present proliferation of religion on the world's population. This book has been very interesting and I just wanted to listen every waking minute.
Comparing my own background in religion with the authors. I thought I was agnostic, but after listening to this book, I would have to say that I am more atheist.
I have not listened to this author before
Very interesting theory about how God is a virus. So true!! This audio book is worth listening to more than once.
