BoM vs. W&S update–5:56 p.m.
We’re both going downhill, fast. Sorry Joe.
Oh, check out these reviews, though. (I admit to purposely finding a funny and not-so-positive review, so you Mormons reading cannot accuse me of this. It would be a waste of time. I admit it! It’s true. I’m slanted, biased, not being fair, etc. I ignored those of you who raved on about the wonderful book, and how it changed your life, and found one that didn’t care too much for it. I also admit I didn’t find a negative review for Wives and Sisters, because I COULDN’T!! There isn’t one online, or anywhere! So there. Nyahhah, nyahhah, nyhaah. How do you spell Nyahha? I have no clue.)
An Amazon review for BoM—
This is a truly special book. It is more valuable than any other book you will ever come across. Its uses are almost too numerous to count, but let me list three that you might not have considered: 1. It will replace your National Geographic subscription and your minor in anthropology. Why spend time and money studying modern fads about the origins of ancient Americans when it’s all there in the Book of Mormon. Yes, it’s true. The Native Americans are descended from Jews. It’s right there in the book. And where else can you learn that elephants lived in the New World, that modern metallurgy was known to the ancient Americans as well as compasses and submarines? Also, did you know that a couple of dozen hard-working people built a replica of Solomon’s Temple here in the New World? It took the Israelites 150,000 men seven years to build their version. Lazy beggars. 2. It is the perfect sleep aid. Yes, seriously. Get rid of your sleeping pills, forget counting sheep, hypnotism, expensive beds and pillows, and any other methods of curing insomnia. This book is so dreadfully dull and tedious that you will be snoring within minutes. 3. This book gets rid of unwanted visitors, telemarketers, annoying coworkers, obnoxious neighbors, you name it. Just try to loan them your Book of Mormon and watch their eyes glaze over, see them look anxiously at their watch, or make some excuse about being late for an appointment.
An Amazon review for W&S
Block out Saturday and half of Sunday, and stock up on your favorite caffeinated beverage because Wives and Sisters is a compelling book that you can’t put down. And when Wives and Sister closes, 288 pages later, the characters remain in your memory, living in your thoughts, compelling you to read it again. The disappearance of Allison Jenen’s best friend and her own confrontation with death age of six colors this story of personal survival. Nine years later, Allison begins questioning the system of her world with the death of her mother. She began bucking that system at the subsequent remarriage of her father, in his effort to populate his Celestial heaven. Through Allison’s pain and humiliation of rape, to her triumph over the deceit and bondage of the patriarchal society in which she is trapped Allison Jensen is our antihero. From childhood to adulthood she takes the hard road to truth, pulling, not only herself but, her sisters to the otherside of their personal devastation to survival. Natalie Collins wove a convincingly intricate tale with all the personalities and emotions of life that draws you in and doesn’t let you go. Situations many of us could never comprehend in a sane world and yet know they exist daily, even in this new millennium. I could not put this book down, so I read it again, and wanted more. My family gets copies of this book for Christmas.
