I did not read the print version. I prefer audio because I can clean my house and "read"a great informative book at the same time. I can also drive and "read" too.
The way it was presented was both informative and entertaining. It kept my attention and I hated when it was over.
No, but I think he did a fine job on Scourge.
The Maker of Tears
I am a nurse and love books about health related issues.
This book is the story of a child born into Scientology. She had no freedom to even
think for herself. I am so glad she got out alive.
David Miscavige's wife has been missing for years and no one is looking for her.
Scientology is classified at or near the top of harmful cults. They take all your money, Noting is free with them. They charge for the "help", which is really brainwashing.
If you have no money they put you in the sea org. to work as a slave.
People who speak out against them are in danger of being sued and followed for
years. They have a history of being a mind control cult. They force secrets out of you to use as blackmail if you try to escape.
Please also read. "A Peace of Blue Sky." by Atack. I is not an audio book yet but I hope audible will consider it. A Peace of Blue Sky is available at amazon as a kindle e-book.
The abuse from this "religion" started from the beginning with Ron L. Hubbard.
Some think is is only the current leadership.
It is much deeper than that.
By the way. I am not a Scientologist and have never visited any of their "churches"
I am just a mom, nurse and concerned citizen who is trying to educate myself
about abuses going on in our country.
We should demand the Scientology be held accountable for the evil it is brought on
The Fever of 1793 is a well written account of the yellow fever.
Very sad but true tale.
I could not put it down.
I am a nurse at a medium size hospital and know that is only a matter of time
before some disease takes large numbers of people and the medical community will be
Bonhoeffer is an example of what it means to be a Christian. He stood for the helpless
even at the cost of his own life.
This is an example of someone who did not have to risk his life but did.
He was not on Hitler's "hit list" until he began to assist the Jews.
Bonhoeffer will always be remember as a great man while
Hitler is known as a murderous coward.
This book should be read by all who want to change the world for better.
I hope I could be this courageous if faced with evil as he was.
Malcolm did a great job narrating.
My child had to read this for school. We as a family thought it would be good to listen to it together as he read along with the book. I am so glad we did. The story is about compassion for people no matter the
color or station in life. It is about love. One of the best books I have read.
Even my husband loved it. We were all in tears at the end of the book.
The narrator is the best. She did each voice perfectly. She was especially good with the children's voices.
I hope audible will ask Merkerson to read more children's books and I do believe she is gifted reader.
Even my son was taken aback by how well she read.
