    Orson Scott Card is a master storyteller, who has earned millions of fans and reams of praise for his previous science-fiction and fantasy works. Now he steps a little closer to the present day with this chilling look at a near-future scenario: a new American Civil War. The American Empire has grown too fast, the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point, and the war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war.

    Overall

    I really appreciate the works of this author and when I started this book it sounded like it was going to be one of his best ever. I actually listened to the entire book in two sittings. The ending of the book really fell off. It almost seems like the author just wanted to be done with it so he wrapped up too many loose ends with some rather simplistic conclusions.

    Even though the ending kind of let me down-I would still recommend it as a listen that is as good as most. But for this author-it could have been so much more. There was one real shocker with the demise of one of the characters-I won't spoil if for you but it comes as a real suprise.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    Overall

    Among the nearly 100 audio books I have listened to, this is one of the very best. The ending is certainly not your mundane feel good ending but King seldom ends his books that way. I have read or listened to almost everything King has done and this along with some of the Dark Tower series are his best. Don't pay any attention to reviewers that try to write like literary critics-buy this book and get ready for a great ride.

    The narrator adds immensely to the book itself. I found myself feeling like some of the characters are people I wish I had as my personal friends. Jerome Wireman was the best and I will truly miss him.
