I have just started the book and just like the first volume I can't put it down. I feel that I am apart of the story. The spirit is so strong I just want to keep reading even though I know the outcome.

1. These first two volumes were easy reading ("drawing on techniques of popular storytelling") and are guaranteed to please the "first-time" reader of Church history ("a narrative history written for a general audience") by giving them chronological accounts of the many concurrent events the early Saints experienced.

2. I have over thirteen-hundred Church books and journals, including more than a hundred books on Church history, and am a numbers, dates, detail-oriented, underline, write in the margins, tab pages with sticky-notes... kinda guy; am not too interested in touchy-feely vignettes ("lay awake crying" / "looked up at the sky, saw the countless stars of the Milky Way, and felt homesick" / "her evenings were often filled with dinners, parties, and concerts" / "she would wear a red geranium on her dress" / etc.).

3. The end-notes testify of the extreme effort the researchers and writers took to be accurate, so when a position / policy statement is written, I can be sure that consideration in the appropriate words to use considered the many criticisms previously made by critics and apostates ("the volume rarely addresses challenges in or to the historical record in the text itself"). Even so, I would have liked the end-notes to have included additional information regarding each incident, but only a couple of times did the end-notes add anything to "the rest of the story."

4. No real complaints; always glad to read "official" Church publications, am grateful for the Church's effort to clarify and declare, and I'll be happy to purchase and read the remaining two volumes.

LDS Bookstore to be commended for it's excellent communication with customers, great products, and super fast shipping. I can always depend upon them to treat me fairly with pricing and other issues. They are a great service to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I look forward to the LDS Bookstore in meeting my other needs for church books, periodicals, scriptures, and magazines, etc.
