Publisher's Summary

A former top insider reveals the nightmare world of violence and abuse at the highest levels of the Church of Scientology. One review states: "At home alone, a 14 year old girl takes a phone call from Scientology. This starts a quarter of a century journey of manipulation, betrayal and sexual, physical and mental abuse. This journey leads to the highest management echelon and one woman's courage to break free. A real page-turner." - Mark P. Another writes: "Amy Scobee has written a book unlike any other expose of Scientology. She actually was at the top of International Management for 20 years, and oversaw the recruitment of Hollywood stars into the Church of Scientology. She witnessed the abuse of top managers by their senior, David Miscavige. She writes convincingly of the human rights violations she endured while on the Rehabilitation Project Force, a thinly disguised slave labor camp. Her book is enjoyable to insiders and laymen alike, with a glossary of terms provided, and plentiful footnotes. This is an important contribution to understanding the controversy surrounding the Church of Scientology. The glaring spotlight eventually points to Abuse at the Top." - Michael H.

OMG the Narration!

Although I appreciate the inside information and the details of the struggles Amy Scobee went through and I really did want to enjoy this book, I could not get past the narrator. She actually mispronounced 'corps' as 'corpse'! She butchered the English language repeatedly and her phrasing was off by a mile. She also made everything sarcastic - I mean everything. It became very hard to listen to since I started to listen for mistakes instead of getting lost in the book.

Fascinating story - idiotic reader

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but I'd urge them to wear a mouth-guard because teeth gnashing over the narration is inevitable.


Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Scobee? Why or why not?

Yes.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Danielle Plaso?

Anyone who knows the word is SUPPOSEDLY, with a D, not "supposaBly." What is humorous is that the first time she says "supposably" is just after someone accuses the protagonist of being illiterate. It's the narrator's literacy skills I question. I can't believe no one else caught this and the audio book went on sale like this.
