Another fabulous ex-cult book is SUVIVOR written by Chuck Palahniuk, the same author who wrote “FIGHT CLUB” It’s about the sole survivor of an Amish type group. Not a lot of similarities to the F, but the concept is there nonetheless.

I concur, this book has many similarities to the Family, not the least being their "loving Jesus" type scenarios.

Speaking of relateable books, has anyone read The Poisonwood Bible? It's about a family with 4 girls who are missionaries in Africa (with an insane father). It's almost too relateable, but it's an excellent read.

While we are on the subject of "relateable" works of "art", I thought "The Virgin Suicides" was a great film. Sophia Coppola did a great job of exploring repressed fundamentalist families. The soundtrack by Air was also above par (their best work to date in my opinion).(reply to this comment

I read the book Summer 2000, and it engrossed me. Couldn't wait to get home from work to read more. As you note, it is eerie at times because of parallels to F life. I cried lots, and heartily. But I recommend it.(reply to this comment

Hummm....Life's not so bad when you look at it like that. Could be worse--for hell. "For meeting old friends, there's no place like hell". I for one don't want to be in a heaven where I'll be surrounded by Christians! Ha!

I think it's Aldous Huxley. Adolf was a whole different "Brave New World". :-)
