    I have very little doubt that the Church of Scientology tried to ruin Michelle's life after she came out as gay and left the church. I do not question that her failed marriage left her physically and emotionally drained and that the church played a big role in her continuing to attempt...

    The tone of the writing of this book often rubbed me the wrong way, but I still thought it was really interesting. I knew scientology was anti-gay, so it was amazing to read an actual account of the church condemning a member for being their authentic self. I am glad that she was able ...

    Okay read about a successful businesswoman and how and why she left the church of Scientology. While interesting to read her story it's quite a familiar tale by now and it didn't add too much for me to what I've read before and what I've seen in documentaries. For me i'd like to hav...

    Amazing story Michelle?s story of the tragedy of believing in the Scientology cult just breaks your heart. However, she is a woman of strength, courage and pure grit. I only wish those people that believe this cult can help you, read her book and know the truth. She fought and fou...

    I read through this one very quickly, as I am super interested in the subject of Scientology, from both pro- and anti- viewpoints. It was easy and interesting, however the author wrote herself as a Mary Sue in many ways, which came across as though we were only getting a slice of th...

    One star because I am not going to finish it. If you know nothing about Scientology, this will give you some of the dirt. There are briefer, more enlightening reveals, but this will distress any reader. It is a bizarre and nasty story. Maybe the nastiness will appeal to others more tha...

    Another great take-down of the evil cult of Scientology, and how absolutely nasty it is to former adherents. The degree of actions taken against the author by the cult should tell you how crazy Scientology is as well as its meanness and vindictiveness. The author's many decades as an i...

    What can I say, really? I read the majority of this book in one sitting. After seeing the HBO documentary Going Clear and Leah Remini's show, I try to pick up and read other accounts of people who have left Scientology when I can. I am still amazed at the lengths the "church" (I use th...

    I wouldn't say much about the writing, but I don't read many memoirs so it didn't seem that unusual to me- I suppose it's her voice, after all. The first chapter was a rough start for me but after that it was smooth sailing, and I thought her story was engaging and important. It's easy...

    Interesting book on a woman's intake, descent and discharge from the Scientology religion. ...

    Read it!!! Loved it. Couldn?t put the book down. Eye opening and informative. I will read again and highly recommend this book. ...

    Very interesting ...

    Great read, chilling story of the lengths some will go to in order to protect a cult. ...

    I have very little doubt that the Church of Scientology tried to ruin Michelle's life after she came out as gay and left the church. I do not question that her failed marriage left her physically and emotionally drained and that the church played a big role in her continuing to attempt...

    The tone of the writing of this book often rubbed me the wrong way, but I still thought it was really interesting. I knew scientology was anti-gay, so it was amazing to read an actual account of the church condemning a member for being their authentic self. I am glad that she was able ...

    Okay read about a successful businesswoman and how and why she left the church of Scientology. While interesting to read her story it's quite a familiar tale by now and it didn't add too much for me to what I've read before and what I've seen in documentaries. For me i'd like to hav...

    Amazing story Michelle?s story of the tragedy of believing in the Scientology cult just breaks your heart. However, she is a woman of strength, courage and pure grit. I only wish those people that believe this cult can help you, read her book and know the truth. She fought and fou...

    One star because I am not going to finish it. If you know nothing about Scientology, this will give you some of the dirt. There are briefer, more enlightening reveals, but this will distress any reader. It is a bizarre and nasty story. Maybe the nastiness will appeal to others more tha...

    Another great take-down of the evil cult of Scientology, and how absolutely nasty it is to former adherents. The degree of actions taken against the author by the cult should tell you how crazy Scientology is as well as its meanness and vindictiveness. The author's many decades as an i...

    What can I say, really? I read the majority of this book in one sitting. After seeing the HBO documentary Going Clear and Leah Remini's show, I try to pick up and read other accounts of people who have left Scientology when I can. I am still amazed at the lengths the "church" (I use th...

    I wouldn't say much about the writing, but I don't read many memoirs so it didn't seem that unusual to me- I suppose it's her voice, after all. The first chapter was a rough start for me but after that it was smooth sailing, and I thought her story was engaging and important. It's easy...

    Interesting book on a woman's intake, descent and discharge from the Scientology religion. ...

    Read it!!! Loved it. Couldn?t put the book down. Eye opening and informative. I will read again and highly recommend this book. ...

    Very interesting ...

    Okay read about a successful businesswoman and how and why she left the church of Scientology. While interesting to read her story it's quite a familiar tale by now and it didn't add too much for me to what I've read before and what I've seen in documentaries. For me i'd like to hav...

    Amazing story Michelle?s story of the tragedy of believing in the Scientology cult just breaks your heart. However, she is a woman of strength, courage and pure grit. I only wish those people that believe this cult can help you, read her book and know the truth. She fought and fou...

    I read through this one very quickly, as I am super interested in the subject of Scientology, from both pro- and anti- viewpoints. It was easy and interesting, however the author wrote herself as a Mary Sue in many ways, which came across as though we were only getting a slice of th...

    One star because I am not going to finish it. If you know nothing about Scientology, this will give you some of the dirt. There are briefer, more enlightening reveals, but this will distress any reader. It is a bizarre and nasty story. Maybe the nastiness will appeal to others more tha...

    Another great take-down of the evil cult of Scientology, and how absolutely nasty it is to former adherents. The degree of actions taken against the author by the cult should tell you how crazy Scientology is as well as its meanness and vindictiveness. The author's many decades as an i...

    What can I say, really? I read the majority of this book in one sitting. After seeing the HBO documentary Going Clear and Leah Remini's show, I try to pick up and read other accounts of people who have left Scientology when I can. I am still amazed at the lengths the "church" (I use th...

    I wouldn't say much about the writing, but I don't read many memoirs so it didn't seem that unusual to me- I suppose it's her voice, after all. The first chapter was a rough start for me but after that it was smooth sailing, and I thought her story was engaging and important. It's easy...

    Interesting book on a woman's intake, descent and discharge from the Scientology religion. ...

    Read it!!! Loved it. Couldn?t put the book down. Eye opening and informative. I will read again and highly recommend this book. ...

    Very interesting ...

    Great read, chilling story of the lengths some will go to in order to protect a cult. ...

    I have very little doubt that the Church of Scientology tried to ruin Michelle's life after she came out as gay and left the church. I do not question that her failed marriage left her physically and emotionally drained and that the church played a big role in her continuing to attempt...

    The tone of the writing of this book often rubbed me the wrong way, but I still thought it was really interesting. I knew scientology was anti-gay, so it was amazing to read an actual account of the church condemning a member for being their authentic self. I am glad that she was able ...
