Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 2/15/2014

    " Very interesting, though I definitely don't want a sister wife! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey Black | 2/7/2014

    " Quite fascinating in and of itself, I wish the authors had sugar coated less. It was a little too, "our family is perfect!" for me. It did change my perceptions of polygamy, as well as make me examine my feelings about being a member of a church that once condoned and encouraged the practice of polygamy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Driscoll | 2/3/2014

    " True story of a plural family. Their goal was to convince mainstream America that their family is extremely similar to any other family. In many ways, they are. I support decriminalizing polygamy. However, I do have to question the sanity of any man willing to take on more than one wife. The writing is a bit bland, but answered most of my questions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/22/2014

    " Quick read. Written by the family who inspired Big Love (a show I used to love). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney Wachob | 1/11/2014

    " Very very interesting and well-written. A great view of a positive polygamist marriage -- we're so barraged with images of pedophilic polygamists like Warren Jeffries that the very idea of polygamy engenders negative feelings. This book dispels the idea that all polygamy is problematic and that, in a lot of ways, it's just like every other relationship ... it needs respect, commitment, trust, etc. to work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cara | 1/10/2014

    " This was my first polygamist read that wasn't tainted with the evil Warren Jeffs. This books focus is to show the world that polygamy is not all bad and for us to not be prejudiced against them. It's hard, I know that I am not better than anyone else. I certainly have my own beliefs and they don't include polygamy in the slightest. With that said I live in Utah and I am surrounded by people living that lifestyle. It's hard for me to set down how odd it is. I can't see how anyone would choose it but I want my children to be kind to everyone. These fundamentalists not flds, consider themselves Mormons, just like me. They even have their kids go to church activities because we represent the closest beliefs. Hmm. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja Cannell | 1/8/2014

    " Such an interesting book on a present day polygamous family, who do not feel abused, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/1/2014

    " I can barely handle one kid and one husband and this guy has three wives and 24 children. I don't endorse polygamy but there is a lot of love in this family. I would have liked to hear more about how they raise their kids and less focus on the relationship of the three wives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/27/2013

    " Very interesting book, although I could never live that lifestyle, I can see how some others could. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/26/2013

    " Interesting to read about issues or events from the perspectives of the different individuals. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 12/11/2013

    " The writing is simple, unchallenging, and slightly cheesy, but the story is FASCINATING! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 12/5/2013

    " I liked this book. I've read several about terrible polygamist husbands and had thought there must be some happy families out there. So it was interesting to read about happy women making this choice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 8/16/2013

    " A quick, easy read that, while interesting as a peek into a "modern" polygamous marriage, I just didn't find it all that compelling or probing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allison | 6/8/2013

    " I would actually give this half a star...there was moments where I foun it contradicting and there really wasnt clear cut facts which is what i was really hoping for. It left me with more questions than answers an not in a good way... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sena | 12/8/2012

    " I love learning about how other people live their lives and I thought that this book gave great insite into the polygamist culture and this family's journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 11/6/2012

    " Very interesting. I understand why they chose the format to write each persons view but it was very repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moira | 11/1/2012

    " A bit repetitive - but deeper than the other recent about polygamy - Becoming Sister Wives- the book about the Browns on TLC. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Deveaux | 5/20/2012

    " Potentially fascinating information. Kind of a boring read. (Which is good I suppose!) a little simplistic in its language and layout. Still, if the subject interests you, read it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate Elizabeth | 4/15/2012

    " I resent the Dargers for getting married, because it led to the publication of this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy | 12/2/2011

    " I tried to be open-minded but I just don't get it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Ceresa | 11/6/2011

    " Interesting account of polygamy. I learned a lot. Makes you think about monogamy, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 9/8/2011

    " Interesting concept, but not a terribly interesting read. If I hadn't taken a class with this type of focus a couple of years ago, I probably would have dropped it before my usual 50p benchmark. "
