This is my seventh book in the Ender saga (Speaker for the Dead is my favorite) and although I haven't loved all of them, this book is by far the worst. I don't believe in judging works based on the author's belief but this book just seems like a platform for Orson Scott Card to advertise the Mormon Church. He so vehemently argues that marriage is only between a man and a women and that having children is the most important thing in life. Shadow Puppets does not fit gracefully into the series and this book is barely sci-fiction. Card is an activist for the prevention of same-sex marriage. There would be no reason for me to know that if his writing in this book didn't prompt me to look it up.
This is literally the worst book I have ever listened to. I do not recommend it to anyone and I will never recommend it to anyone. It was absolutely awful. DO NOT PURCHASE!!! I AM SO SERIOUS, IT IS TERRIBLE!
Nothing by this author ever again.
It wasn't really the narrator's fault the book was just so bad.
This isn't a question I can answer because I never would have allowed this to be published.
I cannot stress enough how horrid this book was.
