The Book High

I've always said I'll read anything, and I really do mean that. Lately M/M romance has had my interest, but fantasy and sci-fi were my first loves and will always hold a special place in my heart. I also love histories and biographies.

Saints - Orson Scott Card The history of the Mormon pioneers--perhaps in another dimension. Totally fictionalized, Card's characterizations were totally offensive. Especially that of the Prophet Joseph, whom Card portrays as this aggressively angry man who enjoys wrestling and stick-pulling (which he really did enjoy) not for the fun aspect of it, but as relatively innocent ways of releasing his hidden aggression.

Told from the point of view of a fictional wife of Joseph, this novel creates an alternate version of the motives behind the actions of the early members of the Church--forcing the reader to view these individuals in new and often disturbing ways.
