I guess the picture of what looks like a space ship on the cover art - and a poor understanding taken from the plot summary - led me to think this was a more conventional science fiction story. There is nothing conventional about it - but then it IS Orson Scott Card after all. While I have never heard the Ender series everyone seems to think is so great, I have heard other Card novels and he is always original. You really have to suspend disbelief on this one, but the story, characters and narration all make that possible.
