surprisingly good .. a very in depth study of what it means to grow up and live in a cult. How close the experience is to growing up in "normal " society with bullying and manipulation of basic human emotions and desires. recommended
This is a captivating read with an excellent narrator. If you try to look up information about this sect in English, you'll get some stuff about the Knutby shooting, but this book is an autobiographical deep dive into what life is like for a young person being gradually consumed by a cult. Oh, that's another thing: this story has been translated from Swedish into British English, so "sect" here doesn't just mean a specific denomination--it means a cult. If they had titled the book "Girl in a Cult", it might attract more American readers. Anyway, I'm really enjoying this one. I can't wait to see how the author ends up leaving the sect/cult. I just had to leave a review when I saw it only had 3.5 stars. It's way more interesting than that, and it's a true story.
great insight into the daily life of a sect and the impact such things can have in adulthood. I appreciate this story was translated!
