Link of the Day: ‘Three Cups of Tea’ Scandal Continues


Three Cups Of Tea

The Huffington Post:  ‘Three Cups of Tea’ Author, Greg Mortensen, Sued by Readers for Book Fabrications

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Come on, people!  The whole part of reading is to experience a story, whether that story is fiction or non!  ‘A Million Little Pieces’ was one of my favorite books, and yes it did piss me off when I found out that James Frey lied throughout practically the entire book, but it’s still an amazing read!

‘Three Cups of Tea’ is on my TBR list, and regardless of whether everything actually happened how Mortensen relates it or not, I will probably enjoy it because everyone says it’s a great travel story.  And that’s why I bought it!

What do you think?  Those of you who have read ‘Three Cups of Tea’, was there anything that seemed off about it?  Do you think that Greg Mortensen fabricated his story, and if yes, do you think he should be punished?

Happy Thursday All!

🙂

  1. I haven’t read the book, but there are many books out there that are non-fiction that writers post as fiction because no one will believe them. George Orwell wrote 1984 as someone who was an insider as to how the power players of the planet wanted to shape society. I’m sure some science fiction was written by people with knowledge that the rest of us aren’t in on. But at the end of the day, they were good reads, and thats what its about.
