    1 thought on “Immortal for Quite Some Time”

    1. Who am I to give a book a rating that is supposed to mean something to someone else? What I can say is that I loved this book. Full disclosure, I know Scott, I've been hearing about this book for years, I know some of the stories from other venues. I'm a disaffected mormon who loves many mormons. I'm brotherless.Scott calls this a fraternal meditation. It unpacks issues involved with family, love, mormonism, religion in general, homosexuality, culture, and familial -- especially fraternal love.S [...]

    2. Scott Abbott’s book was devastating. Its fearless reflections and meditations on his life and his brother, held a mirror to my own. The work left me with numerous questions about how I have lived, about the choices I’ve made, the perspective’s I’ve taken up and abandoned, and about my relationships with my own family and friends and institutions. This is powerful stuff. It is beautiful and sad. Potent in its confrontation with vulnerability. Rich in evocations. I want to say I could not [...]

    3. Scott was one of (the best, actually) my German professors at BYU in the late nineties. Reading this book was partly for me finding out about his struggles during the time I knew him. I was part of the marginalized left at BYU at the same time he was, and this book told that story as well as the larger one of how someone who grew up on the periphery of Mormon Country was pulled to its center and then found the institution stultifying. His family relationships bear some similarity to my own and I [...]

    4. This was a fairly easy read because of the diary format. I found it interesting. as it took place in my area and during the years I was growing up. I could relate to the struggles of the author and his Gay brother. Insightful and cathartic.

    5. A thoughtful and moving memoir, if memoir is what it is. I think it's part memoir, and part a sort of poetic mediation on how well we can ever really know even the people that are closest to us. It was compelling and I read it in one sitting.
