Reviews - What do customers think about Brethren (Annies People V3)?
Too predictable Mar 23, 2007
I'd waited for this book for a long anticipating what would happen with various characters and the relationships that were developing. This books has too much going on and too many happy endings. It is like a fairy tale with a "and everyone lived happily ever after" ending. It glamourizes a life style that isn't always what it seems. It would be interesting to learn more about how the Amish truly make a living and how they manage to stay within the law while not paying taxes, using the facilities of hospitals, marriages between close cousins are common, etc. The puppy mills where dogs are caged their entire lives while they produce litter after litter is a regular practice in the Amish community; watching TV in houses of the fancy people but not owning one of their own; riding in cars but not owning cars - isn't this a little hypocritical? I'd like to have had fewer story lines going with more details of what life is like for the shunned. It is absolutely imperative that you read these books in the order they were written but I wouldn't waste my time on the Brethren and I'm very glad that I took it out of the library which I strongly recommend if you must read it.

You get involved in the families & their way of life. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am anxiously awaiting the next story. Please keep them coming. With all that is going on in the world today....these stories are soothing and refreshing. I enjoy reading about the Amish way of life.
