I have read many of Orson Scott Cards books and all of the shadow series. I am used to a fairly consistent level of detail in the stories but I felt like this one was an outlier. At the end of the book Orson talks about the shorter format and states it was somewhat of an experiment to see if a story could fit into a cheaper book but I would say the results are negative.
It was difficult to connect with the story in such a short time frame and I am quite certain that it could have been a meaningful book had it been developed deeply.
