In some of the books in this series nothing good happens till the very end; whereas this one, similiar to some of the early books, has a mix of good & bad experiences. The story moves along quite quickly too, but this is probably due to it being a shorter audio book (i.e., <11 hrs compared with 20-30 hrs of some of the other books).
This was on OK audio book. Its definitely not a happy one. Many moral issues are covered throughout. More than once I had to pause and reflect on the actions taken by the characters. You can tell Card's Mormon background influenced this story (i.e., several themes of man creating his own world & being god like).
I would be hard pressed to give it one star, as I did listen to the whole thing, including the short stories. Overall though, I think there are more interesting stories to read & consider.
