I like many of Card's books, but this one just didn't work for me. It is historical fiction - kind of. That is the biggest problem I have with it: It is a series of hypotheses based on the extrapolation of sketchy historical documents at the time of Card's writing of this novel. Since Card wrote this book, most of his major plot twists and events have now been shot down and are "very improbable" or just flat out wrong. It was a nice try (and maybe plausible) at the time of his writing of this novel based on the facts that were known at the time, but now it is almost laughable. If you do read this book, do yourself a favor and google - particularity search for "fair lds wiki" and you will see what I am talking about...
Good solid continuation of book one, but be aware that the love story continues and it gets a little annoying. The idea of exploring love between these two characters is an interesting one, but it is done in a way that makes the characters seem kind of shallow and stereo typically "Young adult fiction". It got pretty annoying at times. I felt twinges of twilight at times.
I liked so much about this book, but be warned that it has a hard edge to it. Inspite of that I now must check out the sequel books.
Wow!!! After a few hours into this book I already had bought the rest in this series...It was that good. Plenty of action, solid story and surprisingly clean. I feel comfortable recommending this book to seasoned fantasy readers as well as young adults in my life (nieces and nephews). Very good book!!!
So far i am flying through this series, I just can't put it down. This book was just as good for me as the first one, maybe just a little less - but darn close. Lots of action and creativity. Great listen :)
Great book!! Plenty of action and lots of creative concepts to make you smile. I really enjoyed this book.
This is one of my favorite books ever! Great story and great action! Highly recommend
I wish the narrators were the same in this book as the last two, but it is still a great listen. Not your Typical Zombie Book. Nice plot with lots of great and entertaining characters. The whole series is great
