First, the narrators are extremely pleasant ; they are the same as the series. Second, Orson Scott Card is as mind-blowing as always ; pooling Earth's ressources to build colonization ships, folds in space-time continuum, pushing Sci-fi's limits in order to reach the fantasy genre.
It's a mix between Homecoming Saga and Ender's Saga. 17hrs well spent.
interesting perspective of an alien world
fun mix of sci-fi and fantasy
makes you guess and come back for more
poor world building with few details
simplistic relationships between characters
a recurrent abruptness between events
narrator is monotone and slow...I had to play it at 2x speed
As many of OSC's books, its too short (12hrs) we want more !
this book is very well written, although it is not an epic series, it's more casual.
all the threads tie in well together...AND YES I know he explained some things twice.
In general, it flows well.. could you really ask for more ?
the only things that make me stop listening to a book are :
-illogism of action, not on par with actions from a real human being
-the absence of an early hook or generalized boredom
that wasn't the case here.
Imo, your criticism is overplayed..you hold OSC in higher esteem than other authors and therefore, you are harsher with him than you normally would be.
now, as for teenage pregnancy,...hahaha wow that hit a cord.
I didn't see that as a problem while listening...but I can see why that would bother mothers. Honestly tho, think about it. I know a real 16yrs old couple DON'T think about babies, but with a godling ?? I think you underestimate the dictators that are our genes.
here's the basics of Human nature :
Men want women with solid hips to carry the baby and large breast to feed it.
Women want strong men to protect and provide
Power is the greatest aphrodisiac of all
this is a fantasy book where godlings exist...how could these young women do anything but want their genes to join that deep and powerful pool.
Anyway this is a great book, although too short and I for one enjoyed it !
author is illogical and irrational. the caracters are often OOC (out of caracter) from one chapter to the next. it's hard to read on, even though the story isnt bad.
I will buy the real book once it comes out
good beginning to a story
buy it only if u like orson scott card since its not a whole book yet
I recommend it
i liked every single minute of it
the end. bye bye bye bye
good story, nice but weird society
similar to hunger games series
good for a simple listen
it was like the others, pretty good story
nice dectective stuff in a fantasy world
its all good. enternaining and enjoyable steph. rud. is the best. gonna read the third book too
first of all, best narrator in the world.
2nd, very good story, even tho its short..8hrs..i mean wtf
good plot and twists, enjoyable and entertaining
nice high tech stuff, great AI, great plot in general. quite entertaining.
no details on the spaceships tho.
as good as Ben Bova or K.J. Anderson
