Raven The Untold Story of the Rev Jim Jones and His People ↠ Lowed him and the important truth that many of those who perished at Jonestown were victims of mass murder rather than suicideThis widely sought work is restored to print after many years with a new preface by the author as well as the than sixty five rare photographs from the original volume. I've never used the word 'Tome' to describe a book but it's an apt description for Raven It's 600 pages but the physical size of the book is huge When the zombie apocalypse arrives i'll be using this as a weaponAt times this was a brilliant and unbelievable read Exceptionally researched and well written it was epic Every other page i was asking out loud 'How and Why' I could never imagine dedicating my life to one man but luckily I've never met anyone as manipulative as Jim Jones This book was a victim of it's own ending Pretty much throughout i was thinking 'Need to get to the end' because that's the part everyone wants to read Yes the foundations of the Peoples Temple is important and interesting as is the exodus to Guyana but honestly it was the ending i was most fascinated with which doesn't disappoint So given the above praise why only 3 stars It's because of how much detail the author goes into It's OK for the first 350 400 pages but after that i was periodically losing interest during a few of the chapters I didn't need to know every insignificant detail about the pre mass suicide events Free read Û PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free · Tim Reiterman
