    One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston is the story of the First Formic War. Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn’t believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame. And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.

    What did you like best about Earth Afire? What did you like least?

    The initial performers showed a lot of promise for a good book. Yet the later performers were the same old tired readers.


    What was most disappointing about Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston ’s story?

    I learned in high school english that every story must have a climax and a conclusion. Not only were these missing, but there was no segway from the first book to tie in the two. With a year between books, my memory failed to identifiy who the protagolenists were and their relivance to the story. I will not wait for the third book to find out what happened in this nonsensical ending.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The new ones were refreshing; the old one were tired.


    Was Earth Afire worth the listening time?

    It was a waste of time and I felt cheated.


    Any additional comments?

    Orson Scott Card seems to have grown arrogant with an established career. He is too wrapped up in his own stories without regard for readers to get the conclusion. I won't be suckered again.
