I have read many Card Ender, Bean, Memory of Earth, even his non-fiction helps for budding authors. This was initially a very divergent tale from most as I started the book. As the story unfolded the true Card came out. Characters with depth, relationships, histories....even unfollowed paths that do not show as obvious. Further into the book it does become a little obvious that the conception of the tale was not his own, and others were helping weave the tale though. The pace is quite good for the book. As it progresses through the last third some scenes become obvious, and the entire premise of Red vs Blue seems to be very CNN-Fox like in their marketing.
For the entire book what was most interesting to me was Card's commentary in the afterward. Even though it is obvious Card is on the conservative side of the political spectrum, he does admit it causes a bias on his part. He chastises both right and left, Democrat and Republican, conservative and liberal in his warnings of the devisive nature or our current political climate. The only item I wish he would have stressed a little more is the press's roll in the escalation on both sides.
