I read this with my wife, who liked it a bit more than I did. It's well-written, with the pacing of a triller, focusing on a wild story of a very unusual, religious upbringing. However, I don't fully understand the hype, though we've had several "Fringe Hillbilly to Successful" stories capture our imagination in recent years (such as Hillbilly Elegy). If you like this kind of memoir, you'd probably like it.
