A beautiful and tragic tale that wraps through political mystery and intrigue w/in the confounds of science. This is a work of OSC that will be remembered as a marquee experience in the genree.
this audiobook was an awesome finish to this awesome series. I have enjoyed this series immensely and inbite you to enjoy it as welll.
very few books dredge up great and terrible memories from my past but this one did and blessed me with the ability to look at them from a different perspective.
And Buffalo George
It's hard to write a cogent review of this book because it's really just a 'tweener between Shadow Puppets and Shadow in Flight. In this one the continual reminders that Bean is dying are annoying. Interesting insight on Islam (from a Mormon?) As are the continual search for Bean's babies...as if OSC couldn't loose one and then have him/her resurrected in the next book? The geopolitical conflicts were interesting and you have to wonder where OSC obtained those ideas? This completes the "Shadow" series for me...read them all. Liked the first one best.
This is Orson Scott Card at his best. Great story arc and complex characters without the overly simplistic plot devices of alien invasion or super genius pathological killer antagonist.
This story fills in details on those who stayed on Earth in the Enderverse, and I felt it fit beautifully with the other parts of the story. Traffic, touching, heroic and human. If you like the stories that went before you will enjoy this one as well.
