By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Going Clear

Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief - Lawrence Wright

If you ever want to be really angry and depressed about Scientology, I highly recommend this book. I knew I didn’t like the group, but I didn’t really know why. Now I do. I did think Wright did a nice job of not taking pot-shots at religion in general, or even alternate religions in general, both of which would have been easy to do.
