After the Fire

This book impressed me enormously as I have never really read anything about what goes on inside religious sects and it really revealed the insidious nature of these groups and how people are controlled and brainwashed in a very subtle way. Some of the cruelty described was disturbing but necessary to convey the extremism and brutal control exerted by the leaders of these groups. The structure was very suitable to the theme with the before and after interviewing of the main protagonist Moonbeam, and throughout the book we are struck by Moonbeam's sharpness and insight and self awareness even while she was within the base. It works its way nicely to the dramatic climax and the psychological effect on the characters is well conveyed. I cannot fault this insightful, well thought out and original work of fiction. 5 stars!!
