    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    Story
    What would have made Pathfinder better?

    My primary suggestion would be to have someone else narrate. The primary narrator was impossibly bad.

    I've read many of Orson Scott Card's books and am a big fan of his. Listening to this book was torture, however, and I would recommend avoiding books narrated by Stefan Rudnicki.

    I'd like to say that the story was good despite the bad narration, but I just couldn't bring myself to enjoy it at all.


    Has Pathfinder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, I will not listen to another OSC book narrated by Stefan Rudnicki, which unfortunately seems to be the majority.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Just about anyone would have done better. I don't understand how someone's voice could be so devoid of emotion and yet so irritating. Michael Kramer, for example, could have done a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    Please, do not waste your money.
