Quick read but interesting read. The book written in 1979 gives a chilling description of the right religious extremists that were at that time not as powerful as now but had the same rhetoric. The book opens with Dave under the shock of his father's death. Most of the book's plot is underlined with Dave's confusion about his dad's and new start. The culprits are a bit like cartoon images of what bad guys should be but still for Dave's journey it's quite worth it. 3 3/4 stars rounded up to 4.
