This book is fairly typical of Orson Scott Card. It's a look at society's behavior and an odd parallel to biblical history of sorts. Given a chance to start a new world from scratch, could you have done better?
The first two thirds or so were pretty good. The last third fealt like it was thrown in to make the book longer. Not really well tied in. An OK book all together though.
This is not one of his best books. It is in fact a little boring. After reading most of his work I was dissappointed in the story (or stories)which have no focus. The book just dies.
"The Worthing Saga" is a novel that went through many phases of publishing each time becoming more refined by the author, Orson Scott Card. The final manifestation of this work is a stand alone novel that will erase the world around you while you listen and imagine the web of charachters and worlds that Card weaves. Truly, this audio book, is one that everybody should purchase and enjoy.
