Mark Twain, who knew a little bit about American literature, called the Book of Mormon "chloroform in print."

Yeah, I was going to say that, on top of everything else, it's boring too.

Trying to be irenic though.


It's beyond boring. It's unreadable. Couldn't get through it. I mean, it is impressive if you think of Joseph Smith improvising this stuff, even if he did rely too much on "And it came to pass..." but that's about all one can say for it. I'm just glad it isn't my holy book.

I just scanned an article at Deseret News that used the "nephites" as an example of something-or-other, and I couldn't help thinking, "What world are these people living in?"
