My Life in Orange: Growing Up with the Guru by Tim Guest

Because it was our 4th birthday, we decided to have gift exchange and decorate Kerry’s tree. It must be mentioned, Brandi left early and Lilac couldn’t move, therefore both are not in this picture.

• Was interested in this cult before, good insight into what it was like living it. – Lilac
• A complete waste of tim. Reading the mundane details of someone’s childhood who you couldn’t care less about. – Stephanie
• The subject matter held my interest, but the writing style was rather dry. I would have liked to see some sort of evolution of character or mindset. – Marlo
• Was an interesting look at this boy’s life. – Sarah
• More a glimpse into the author’s life than an in-depth loook at the cult, but it was still an enjoyable read. – Brandi
• I wanted something more, but not sure what that “more” would be. I was left unsatisfied. – danica

Conclusion: Wow, we could not agree on this one at all. We also didn’t have much to say about it and didn’t even want to do the reading group questions.

    Hi there-
    We thought it amusing that our book club is named Brainy Book Babes (or B3). We are about the same age and most have small children as well.
    I love your site…very well done and I love the rating system you came up with. We are experimenting with a wiki space I included if you’d like to check it out. It’s new for us but feel free to browse it so far.
    I haven’t read this book but many of your picks are similar to some we have read as well.

    Happy Holidays,
