I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. All opinions are my own.
After receiving a frantic call from a man she once loved, claiming that his current wife has been taken, the woman must give up her worries and risk helping the man she cared for save his wife from the hands of a dangerous cult, author Warren. Adler’s “cult.”
At night, Naomi Forman receives a call. Barney Harrigan, a man she once loved – now happily married with children – says, “My wife Charlotte was caught in fame.” What started as a rough interruption of her night becomes a horrific interruption of her life because she can’t ignore Barney’s cry for help.
Charlotte Harrigan, engaged in the worldview cult of the Church of Glory, gives her foreign sister the will of the enigmatic Father of Glory. The brain is washed to the point of understanding, now it is not itself, but only one of many imprisoned by the cult’s promise to be reborn into a new, idyllic life.
Despite a better decision, Naomi agrees to help Barni fight the glory and save Charlotte. But the naive optimism quickly plunged into trouble as their plans were systematically selected, shattered by members of the past and present of the cult and even by local sheriff T. Clausen Moore, who is only as useful as Glory wants. His understanding of the practice of fame and its more secluded territory, including the river, where there have been many “accidental” drownings, is the only obstacle he must overcome in order to restore order in his county. No one is safe.
Naomi’s will is tested and Barney becomes increasingly desperate. The length he wants to go to save his wife is as menacing as the glory itself.
From the Manson family to Scientology, the cult was fascinating, disturbing, and intimidating, from the methodology of its introduction to the requirements of the last day. The vision of Warren Adler’s Church of Fame is no different. Just look at the headlines. Their time will come.
When it comes to such a story, a well-written one is always distinguished from the most sensational plots by how the story affects the conversations they incite. This novel has really done an amazing job of sparking bustling conversations that have gone beyond what we think of when it comes to religious freedom versus indoctrination.
The growth of the character was so multi-layered and complex that it really involved readers in the narrative. The novel presented a story that seemed very real, largely due to the conflicting and flawed characters and opponents of this story. The question of morality engages so strongly that readers will be forced to analyze how they would deal with this emotionally and mentally complex topic. While rescuing our loved ones from indoctrination seems like a fairly simple task, the means by which we do so and the consequences for those actions are what the characters are forced to deal with here.
A great, challenging, and engaging read, Warren Adler’s Cult is a fantastic read. This allows readers to understand the complex and emotional task of losing loved ones due to bigotry and cult activities, as well as to explore the consequences of our choices. The concept of choice is the central theme of this novel, and the twists and turns of the novel halfway and ultimately force readers to stop.
