    Facinating look into how a person can be drawn in to a cult and manipulated to to prevent them from leaving.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This is an uneven book written by a woman who was in jim jones's inner circle--and escaped to tell the world about it.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The sections about her escape are absolutely gripping and the sections on life in the compound are quite sad.

    She recreates the dialogue of conversations that happened more than a decade before she wrote the book.

    The book starts slowly, recounting the author and her mother's early lives.

    Also i can imagine the paranoic state the writer was into as soon as she leaves jonestown.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    There's a movie called bug, by th same producers of the exorcist that also shows a girl being converted to the reality of a paranoic guy she's never seen before .
