I cannot agree with the previous review in terms of how engrossing Exodus is. I found it extremely involving, but in a different way than her first book!

Exodus works extremely well with Unorthodox, and the two books _together_ provide a rare quality of insight into the profound and long terms effects of extreme religious belief systems.

Essential reading for those coming to terms with an extreme religious upbringing! And informative for other readers, though perhaps not all will appreciate the actions and reactions of recovery processes in the same way.

A much better book, in terms of writing style, than her first memoir, Unorthodox. Yet, the story in this is not as engrossing as her first, and at times comes across in a disjointed manner. I could empathize with Feldman in her first book, but found it much harder to do in this one. Overall, an interesting read, and recommended for those who have read her first book.
