CHARACTERS Leaving the Witness CHARACTERS ´ Leaving the Witness READ ✓ PADDINGTONFESTIVAL.CO.UK Ê Amber Scorah Selytizer in Shanghai using fake names and secret codes to evade the authorities' notice Scorah discreetly looked for targets in public parks and stores To support herself she found work at a Chinese language learning podcast hiding her real purpose from her coworkers Now with a creative outlet getting to know worldly people for the first time she began to understand that there were other ways of seeing the world and living a fulfilling life When one of these relationships became an escape hatch Scorah's loss of faith culminated in her own personal apocalypse the only kind of ending possible for a Jehovah's Witnes. This was a really interesting memoir but there were a lot of threads that did not come together for me She s introspective about leaving her faith but she is not as introspective about her loveless marriage and her dependence on men in every realm of her experience The end was just thrown on and I won t spoil it but I just did not at all see it coming and it felt like the entire book could have been written about that because she has her biggest insights about religion then The book lacked a cohesive thread perhaps because she depicts herself as a non agent in a lot of the book
