  • I found this quite gripping as it takes you through a psychological ride. I remember several years ago reading about this Yoga guru who had a very large following and how people who ended up leaving it, claimed that it was a cult. Members became consumed by it, paying every cent they had to it and eventually cut ties with family and friends. Women stated how the leader beat them and sexually assaulted them. I'm not sure if this story was inspired by that same Yoda guru and his following, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is since they parallel so much. I found this to be such an interesting look into how something can be manipulated by a single person in order to have power over others. As we see with both Ethan and Dana, the changes they made weren't over night, they were gradual and when change is at that pace, it's hard to see the dangers until it has already swallowed you. This was great in audiobook form and I definitely recommend giving it a listen.
  • This was not a book of great literary fiction but it is a highly entertaining story. I listened to it while traveling and it was perfect; not requiring my full attention. The narration was captivating, which I fully appreciated.
