This story constantly had me involved and titillated. Perhaps because I was a teacher with many frustrating days in the company of attractive young women... The reading was particularly effective, with the woman's voice being very provocative and sexy. The man's voice was unusual with its Bostonian accent, but it worked very well. I highly recommend this one!
I knew Card was a Mormon, but had no idea how he feels about religion. This very disturbing novel gets right inside his life with his family. He explains this in a postscript. I found myself getting very involved - speaking out loud to his wife in annoyance! His workplace trials are very real and disturbing. The reality of the story makes the plot even more powerful. Must not reveal anything of the extraordinary plot!
I was fascinated by the information and the thinking behind this book. Michael Pollan (should change his name to Pollen) is a deep thinker, and expresses his philosophy very well. I see the world in a new way because of this book (similar to the effect of 'Perfume' by Patrick Susskind).
