It moved along well, stayed interesting and had good characters, and was unpredictable.
The early Alvin Maker series felt a lot like this book.
No one character really stands out for me. They were all good.
A good listen that I'm sure I'll come back to several more times.
The realization that he was indeed special.
An ability to put the listener in the places described.
A boy and his gift.
The Story kept me on the edge of my earphones! Could not wait to listen
The whole story. Not just one point.
I like the book, but at the end they made sure the main character had interactions in a high school environment as to have the drama of twilight or harry potter.
I enjoyed the development of an alternative world so nearly like our own, but with a secret set of rules most of us never see.
Card has created a whole new world here, and it's fascinating. If you liked Ender's Game and don't mind a bit of fantasy mixed in with your sci-fi, check this out.
Some might consider this a teen type book but for me it is both good for adults and older teens. The story line was different in the magic realm and also brings in the old GODS such as Odin and the descendants of others stuck on earth by Locke.
I'm an avid science fiction and fantasy reader. I study Chemical Engineering at the UofU and do photography on the side.
This is a great book. There's a few slow spots while the author is telling something of a parallel story, but getting past those, I love this book.
When the main character finally leaves his friend, the story takes a big turn.
Stefan Rudnicki may be my favorite narrator, he has the right tone and knows how to make subtle changes to his tone to communicate. Emily Card has a clear and precise manner of narrating, but lacks the depth the Stefan has.
When Danny find a new family.
The story is fine, although it feels a bit too scripted.
yes... the narration was excellent.
There wasn't one of those moments...
If you like Card, you will like this book.. But it is an extension of his previous work, rather than something truly new.
I want to find books that flirt with and then seduce me. I want reads with lasting power, leaving me breathless and aching for more!
This audio listen was initially challenging to follow due to some character jargon/slang I didn't understand. Once I understood what was happening, it became a delightfully whimsical story filled with adventures and magic. Since I waited over two months to add my review, I truthfully don't remember much.
