Zealot: A Book About Cults
By Jo Thornely
4 out of 5 stars
In his early life and career, Jim Jones did a lot of good things and helped hundreds of people. But sometimes bad things people do override and overshadow any good things they do. This is one of those times. What an asshole.
I’ve been a fan of Jo Thornely’s writing from back in the days of her Batchy-ette recaps on News.com.au. I wasted many a lecture getting the latest goss on a show I never watched, drawn in only by the virtue of Thornely’s writing. It was heaps good. And, unsurprisingly, so was Zealot.
