  1. Very disturbing book about one of the many child abuse Satan cult delusions, this one taking place in Olympia, WA A local deputy sheriff is accused by his grown children of years of systematic and ritual abuse, everything from simple sexual abuse, to torture, forced abortion, and murder of babies These accusations spread to include other members of the family, and of the community, and imply a secret Satanic cult operating for years under the noses of everyone in the city Perhaps the most shocki [...]

  2. Thoroughly entertaining just like Going Clear This case is a bit dated from the late 80s 90s but I do remember the strange hysteria of those times from my childhood There was a whole era of radical, idiotic belief in massive amounts of satanic cult activity in the United States All the daytime talk shows covered the topic The medical establishment studied it And this moronic case of lying and brainwashing essentially started it off Ridiculous but so engaging Mysterious and corny Questions memory [...]

  3. Some spoilers below This was a fascinating book about recovered memory syndrome It s about two girls who accuse their father of horrific sexual abuse and also implicate others, including police officers Their father is deputy sheriff The accusations and trial wreaked havoc on the family and town The most fascinating thing is that the father confesses to the abuse even though he admits he doesn t remember it In fact, others involved also believe the girls accounts over their own memories And no o [...]

  4. Oh man, is this story insane or what.In 1988, salt of the earth deputy sheriff Paul Ingram of Olympia, Washington, is informed by his colleagues that he s been accused by his two daughters of abusing them When confronted with this earth shattering accusation, his response is not to adamantly deny it but to assume that his daughters are telling the truth, even though he has no memory of it When investigators come back a bit later, Ingram has done some soul searching and offers a qualified confess [...]

  5. A concise, methodical examination of an utterly bizarre case, in which Wright goes a long way towards answering the question which must be in every reader s mind why would a man voluntarily confess to committing the most heinous crimes against members of his own family, when there is no evidence to suggest he did anything of the sort The answer, teased out in the course of the narrative, seems to lie at the heart of a complex of circumstances the approach of the investigating authorities, the in [...]

  6. In Remembering Satan Lawrence Wright, as with his other book I ve read, is able to conjure a time and place that for many of us is fraught with superficial preconceptions, in a fresh new way that illuminates not only the time and place, but broader issues that may bleed into our own times The story of Paul Ingram is honestly the most unbelievable tale I ve ever read This is a true horror story.Notes Wright s ability to set the stage for his action in vivid, engaging terms is unrivaled in the wor [...]

  7. I guess this could be classified as true crime except from the looks of things there s nothing true about it Very disturbing and sad recounting of the destruction of a family after two of the daughters accuse the father, and eventually the mother, and brothers, and a handful of other people, of molesting and abusing them as part of a satanic cult Lawrence Wright is a terrific writer and went on to other, superior books The Looming Tower Al Qaeda and the Road to 9 11, Going Clear Scientology, Hol [...]

  8. Excellent Couldn t put it down and was basically on edge and anxious the whole time Why do I read these things Anyway, as I m sure I ve said before, I love an expose of Freudian psychotherapists And the whole thing was a fascinating look at how memory works and how people are so suggestible Plus witch hunt like hysteria My hot topics Also an excellent reminder of how people in authority are not necessarily an authority, so to speak, or even very smart You d think with all the books on this kind [...]

  9. at the heart of this account is mass hysteria, a phenomenon that brings warmth to my heart it s a fascinating story and i m only giving it three stars because the ending left something to be desired i think perhaps it was written a little too soon after the events unfolded and therefore lacked a satisfying follow up to what became of everyone involved as well as a broader perspective on how this story fits into american culture wright does a good job providing context for the story but i wish he [...]

  10. If you confess to the crime you don t remember committing, and the accusation is so horrible you can t believe you did it, it will help you to remember what you did.Not some French surrealist film or an Outtake from 1984 , but interview technique in a real investigation in the late 1980s The case here is mired in assumptions about Repressed Memory Syndrome and a paranoid rabid fear in certain sections of the community of widespread Satanic Cults, fueled by amateur psychology you don t remember b [...]

  11. An interesting book about psychology, and reading this after The Looming Tower and Going Clear, I have a clear picture of Wright s interesting belief Remembering Satan was definitely a page turner since the truth was so mercurial, and how confirmation bias and sympathy stopped the detectives from thinking critically about the presence of a satanic cult.I will also say that Wright makes a bold movie and not one I m sure I entirely agree with by asserting that Ericka and Julie Ingram has a Freudia [...]

  12. I was waffling around on how to rate this book because there were definitely good things about it I wouldn t say I learned nothing and I don t regret reading, but overall nah Which like, that s what the 2 rating exists for why am I waffling Sigh I guess I m just disappointed because I really wanted this book to be good The frenzy of satanic abuse accusations in the 80s and 90s have been a subject of fascination for me for a long time and since I really liked the author s book about scientology s [...]

  13. This is a single story of the damage that the repressed memory movement created I say a single story, but there were many lives ruined by the case profiled in these pages The most startling aspect of this story is the ease of which the person that was accused by his daughters was convinced that he must have been guilty and that he had also repressed all memory of it A cautionary tale of what a slippery slope it can be to suspend critical thinking and logic Once a thread starts to fray, it only t [...]

  14. Atrocious editorial mistake, affirmed in the epliogue In some cases, lengthy interviews have been compressed to be made succinct, although, I believe, with no loss of context If material is excerpted within a statement, the abridgment is indicated by an ellipsis It is a convention of journalism c.Otherwise, the only widely available account of the Paul Ingram case in Olympia, WA, 1988.

  15. Incredibly detailed account of a Salem like hysteria in Buttfuck, USA Would have been mesmerized if it had been all real Instead, I m left horrified by simple minded Americans in small towns I have a fleeting sensation that maybe I m exaggerating then I remember that Donald Trump is crushing everybody in the polls and the sensation leaves me Never underestimate the power of the Podunks.

  16. One of the earlier books by the author of Going Clear, but it shows the underpinnings of his fascination with group think, the reliability of memory and the dangers associated with unfounded allegations i found it very intriguing and the corollaries to the Salem Witch Trials and early work of Freud were spot on.

  17. A fascinating look at the Satanic panic of the 80 s and 90 s.Our society seems prone to these hysterias Witch trials, hidden Communist cells, the gay agenda, weapons of mass destruction, Al Qaeda sleeper cells, President Obama as a Kenyan socialist determined to destroy America, the threat of sharia law.

  18. Remember that entire decade plus where America was obsessed with repressed memories of abuse at the hands of supposedly ubiquitous satanic cults Sometimes I think my dog isn t very smart, but then I read something like this, and I remember humans aren t much better As usual, excellent writing by Lawrence Wright on a fascinating subject Now to find a copy of Michelle Remembers.

  19. A fascinating, horrifying, stupefying look at the consequences of recovered memories and the Satanic ritual child abuse scare on one family A pretty light weight take on the topic, but engagingly presented and delivered in Wright s typically cautious, even handed style.

  20. Appalling, sad story of how Christian fundamentalism, teenaged authority issues and a penny dreadful paperback collided to ruin several careers and tear apart a family It s scary too see the police and prosecutor in this case being so freaking credulous and, frankly, stupid.

  21. This is a chilling telling of a real example of Satanic Panic and how it ruined the lives of an entire family as well as others It s a modern day witch hunt fed by the scourge of repressed memories Lawrence Wright does an excellent job of mixing fact with thrilling prose.

  22. A simply fascinating account of a family caught up in some kind of mass psychosis A modern day version of the Salem witch trials and the devils of loudon Gripping

  23. I read this in college for a class on Trauma and Testimony Really quite an interesting exploration into the world of false memories.

  24. Fantastic true crime story or is it really a true crime about the whole Satanic ritual abuse phenomenon in the 80 s A gripping story and a fascinating look at the fallibility of human memory.

  25. Riveting and fascinating look at a case at the height of the Satanic Ritual Abuse mania hoax that swept the nation in the 80s and early 90s Could not put it down.

  26. The most common likely cause of cult related memories may very well turn out to be a mutual deception between the patient and the therapist Once reinforced by the therapist, this belief system may become fixed and highly elaborated, sometimes with tragic consequences In these cases the common denominator in the satanic ritual abuse phenomenon may very well turn out to be the therapists themselves Dr George K Ganaway, On the Nature of Memories, Dissociation 5, no 2 June 1992 Those who are 40 or o [...]

  27. A harrowing look at how suggestions can manipulate opinions and recollections Three quarters through the book, I was still trying to close my jaws on some of the fantastic assertions made by the sons and daughters of Paul Ingram he is no less of a shocker btw An absorbing and fast read that provides insight on how coercions however disingenuous or subtle can be affected Free will be damned
