Granted my overall opinion of this audible book may be tainted because I listened to it at 1.5X due to my limited time. This removed most of the emotion from Stefan. But overall, I still felt the book was silly.
I've read many of Card's books and short stories, including the Ender series and A Planet Called Treason, loving them all. This book felt like an early work of Card, perhaps a high school English class project.
It was... OK.
The most irritating thing about this story is the poor pacing of the narration and unrealistic behavior of the characters. People in flight from superhuman pursuers should not stop to wash their faces in a stream or to chat about their problems. People knowingly infected with a terrible virus do not live in carefree moods waiting for it to take effect.
What would happen if/when some mad scientist could mess with our DNA and create odd fellows with coercive intent? It makes a great sci-fi story. Orson Scott Card can write books that are not related to "Ender's Game"...I'll look for more.
im 31 m i live in IL i have a 7 year old dog pudgy he us a pekingese im a blk belt in hapkido i love sports i went to msu on a soccer scholorship till i injured my leg i love all books primarly mysteries and science fiction. my favourite book is mantis the book that started it all.

its so original the idea of being re born in a host of other bodies to creat your own counsal consisting of your self as all the member wow interesting concept. altering genes to enhance people and cure then out standing. i definatly love the story so original i was enthralled i listened to this story non stop more then any books in the past.
he made the charricters come to life he kept me engaged the entire time.
i urge anyone into science fiction or medical mystery to give this book a try you will not be disapointed
Yes. It's an interesting story and I'm a HUGE OSC fan.
Same old thing
The point when Frank intervenes and stops the treatment of a little black girl with sickle cell.
I like Orson Scott Card, but It's all beginning to sound the same. Does Rudnicki have to read every single OSC novel? Don't get me wrong. I like the guys style. He was good in Enderverse and Empire, but this one called for something... different.
orson has done it again. his abality to pull you into the story and keep you wanting more. this shows his deepth as an author. you will not be disapointed.
