All three of the Jason Kolarich books are excellent. I seldom have this level of enthusiasm for an author. But this one knows how to keep your rapt attention while making you chuckle along the way.
This is beautifully written and beautifully told which is fortuitous because everyone should read it. It's not just about Scientology but about how the vast majority of young minds are filled with nonsense and then closed. The methods employed by Scientology are less subtle than other religions, perhaps this is due to it's relative youth. Still, the parallels to all religions are unmistable although they'll predicably not be seen by those still in a state of self delusion.
As a segment in a show, if you say "new rule" a dozen times, it's not so grating. But for a book in which you start every new joke with "new rule", after a while you want that rule to be "no more saying - new rule". Annoying the point of distraction IMO.
Furthermore, I simply didn't laugh much at this book!
I finished it which I don't do unless I'm somewhat entertained. So it held some appeal for me. But I won't be reading the other installments. It was well done and even well written. The story just didn't grab me.
I had no idea the author was a christian fanatic until I was more than half way through the book. It was a great disappointment because it is well written and had my attention. I simply have to give hims that. But unless you are a zealot for his cause, you will find yourself as I did, rolling your eyes as the evil Muslim spirits appear leading up to triumphant return of Jesus Christ to thwart them. The story doesn't assume that Christ is the only or god just that the Muslim god is all evil and the christian god all good.. It's amazing to me that many will read this and think - yes - this could be so. When Jesus makes his appearance in what was to that a point a compelling narrative, you will then know that you are reading a piece of propaganda.
