    Kristin Hannah’s words are more poetic and exciting but exaggerated to the point that I’m left wondering how much truth is there. Words have power, but in my experience as a reader, I don’t remember reading anything that I felt was extremely, dangerously powerful. Maybe in the aggregate, maybe when one is part of a religious or political group, the members of which are all influenced by the same words, maybe then the words have great power.

    Michener is out of style, but I do remember reading his fiction and feeling that the characters and the setting was real.
