Lead Me Not
Bookreview / September 6, 2015

Lead Me Not by Ann Gallagher has already featured on this blog before as part of the blog tour. Read that post right here. But this time I actually read the book and I feel the need to feature this book again, this time with my personal thoughts about it. Because let me tell you, you NEED to read this book. It is by far one of the best M-M stories I have read so far. It made me cry, it made me laugh and everything in between. Isaac Morris is the son of a preacher and has spend his whole life preaching against homosexuality. He is sure it is one of the greatest sins and there is no way God would allow such a thing to exist. He is sure it is a choice you make and anyone can walk away from that choice and make sure their lives are so much better. So when his sister proposes to make a documentary, proving once and for all it is a choice and you can come back from it, he hesitates at first. But when his brother tells him that his son is probably going down that path, he decides…

Scientology – Abuse at the Top
Bookreview / August 8, 2015

Scientology – Abuse at the Top is a book written by Amy Scobee, who has been in Scientolgy for over 20 years before she finally got out. As a former top insider there is no better person to describe what went on inside the highest levels of the Church, the persons involved and the struggle she went through before she got out. I became interested in Scientology quite recently, not to join, but as part of my on going interest in religion and cults all over the world. There is almost no cult more described and published about than this one, and that surprises me. A lot of the books are by people who got out and describe the things they went through out there. I still find it very hard to believe that people would willingly go along with this and even volunteer to stay in there for decades. Amy Scobee witnessed a lot of things up close and personal and describes them in great detail. As with many other books about Scientology this one is also self published and it shows. The language and the editing is showing signs of a non professional at work, but that doesn’t…

The book is self written and self published and could really use…
