Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book, but only in the paper or digital format because the performance was so incredibly distracting! The book followed the story of the ups and downs of the Mormon religion fairly well and dove into the lives of the early converts fairly thoroughly, illustrating how they felt clearly for those outside of the religion.
How could the performance have been better?
The reader could have performed like a human being and not a robot so that her performance would have reanimated the lives she was trying to bring to life. If she read something that was meant to be a question, the entire sentence sounded like a question, not just the final phrase/word(s). Her phrasing was horrendous and her performance was stilted; these issues ruined much of the book for me.
This a great and detailed account of the many beautiful and tragic filled lives of early mormon settlers as they transitioned from polygamy back to monogamy marriage. It's an inside look of the real attitudes and perspectives from early Mormon women who lived it all. I strongly recommend this book to anyone seeking greater historical knowledge and understanding of early Mormonism, even if your area of interest isn't religious or polygamy related as mine is not. Awesome narration too!
