I have been a fan of Orson Scott Card since I first stumbled upon Enders Game a couple of years ago. I think his characters are both interesting and thought provoking. Sarah is no different, though maybe even better.
My whole family listened to the book while driving on summer vacation. The kids did not want to get out of the car sometimes. Card has done a tremendous job of presenting an entertaining fictional story, while maintaining accuracy with biblical and other historical records. This is definitely a work of fiction but what an enjoyable way to gain some insight to the life of a biblical figure. We enjoyed going back to look at the biblical account to compare what parts of the story where created by the author and which had a basis in the bible. Card has done a very good job of being true to the biblical account while adding such rich detail (from his own imagination of course) that these ancient people come to life. We had many interesting family conversations about what life was like thousands of years ago and how these seemingly super-human people from the bible did what the bible says they did.
We can hardly wait for the other books in this series to be release on audio. We will listen to them as a family also.
