Tom Cruise, Ron L Hubbard and aliens where the only three things I knew about Scientology when I started this book.
However, if Janet Reitman's book is anywhere close to the truth, Scientology is a business that Michael Corleone would be proud "run". As I listened to this book, I continually thought of the scams of Bernie Madoff. Talk about selling absolutely nothing to somebody.... As with the other religions available, there is nothing tangible to show after you donate, tithe or volunteer your time, however, most religions will expect something around 10 percent. This religion is never satisfied until it's followers are broke.
The recruiting methods used to pull big names such as Cruise and Travolta were astounding. The fact that these actors are not aware they were manipulated by people who were strategically placed into their day to day lives is unreal.
This book allows you access to information that 99.99999 % of the Scientology followers can not access.
This book was written and spoken superbly. I have several biopic and historical books in my audio collection. This is the first of that genre that kept me sitting in my vehicle waiting to see what was happening next.
I'm serious, this book reveals a side of this cult that I found quite disturbing.
This book is not my normal read, however, it may be one of my favorite books after reading. Glad I did not pass this one up.
Ms. Dugard's writing style is a bit undeveloped, however, that just added to this story in my opinion.
My heart broke several times during the reading of this book. Having a daughter of mine own, I can not express how much I appreciate Ms Dugard sharing this experience with others. Hoping she will be made more aware of easy it is for someone to be taken, I've ask my daughter to listen to this book.
These people were monsters.
Well worth the listen. If you have children, this book is a must.
Finally a book to rival Pillars of the Earth! This book pulled me into all the intertwined stories to a point that I hated it each time we shifted focus. Just as Pillars focused on many characters, World W/O End does the same, only better. Follet managed to develop so many characters who seem so real. When this book ended, I missed many of the characters. I listen to books when I travel and actually looked foward to getting into my vehicle to listen to this book. There were a couple of times that I sat in parking lots waiting to see how the "current" crisis would be handled. Pillars of the Earth and World Without End are two of the best works of fiction written during past 20 years.
