I love Orson Scott Card. This was not at all what I expected. I was three quarters of the way through and I still kept wondering when it would get interesting. The last three hours are the only part worth listening to and I don't think it was worth listening to the first several hours.
There are so many other books written by him that are much better.
Not what I expected from O.S.Card, even from the Audible synopsis, and an unfamiliar genre for me. In any case, it maintained my interest and made credible jumps to incredible places.
This book was totally unbelievable but enjoyable.
This was my first audible so I chose an author I am familiar with and enjoy. After about an hour of listening I was beginning to despair at recognizing the distinctive Orson Scott Card elements. I was becoming bored. I was concerned that maybe the new media was taking away from the story as I usually read at a page a minute and by this time would have been well into the story. I persevered and surprise Orson jumped into high gear. The last three quarters of the audible were great and had a very Orson Scott Card climax and ending.
