Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith - Jon Krakauer I don't like non fiction, and I don't really read a lot of it, until I read this book and became slightly obsessed with the way Krakauer writes. Obsessed meaning that I bought every book he's written for my Kindle. I have this thing about FLDS and LDS that just intrigues me, and I want to read about it. I didn't find it extremely harsh, except for the True Crime parts, and I found the parts about the LDS faith pretty straight forward and honest. It was a page turner, and I never really understood how a non fiction book could be that, but it was, and now I'm obsessed with Krakauer and it's not healthy.
