I read this book, probably 20 years ago, and it was my favorite book. That's why I chose this book as my test-case for the audio book experience. It reminded me, again, why Treason was my favorite book. It explores many realms of the mind, and body through science fiction.
I thoroughly enjoyed Card's bravery in exploring so many diverse themes.
The reader, Stefan Rudnicki was particularly adept at assigning accents to key sub-characters and remaining true to them throughout the story. Fantastic.
I was particularly impressed with the discoveries towards the end of the book that were planted early on in the reading.
This is the first book I read of Orson Scott Card, and now the first audio book was fittingly this one. Card is a Science Fiction Genius. Thanks, Audible, for picking this one up in your library.
No better book!
The lecture on thievery that Jean Val Jean gives to Montparnasse about the difficulty behind stealing. After that speech, it's unthinkable that anyone would rationally turn to a life of stealing that wasn't at the last threads of desperation.
I haven't heard George Guidall's readings before, but he did a marvelous job. I was clinging to every word.
This book will take weeks to get through, but you'll wish it took longer.
They just don't write with this kind of education and insight anymore.
The theories of time travel and space folding are distinct from any other book I've read. I was very captiviated throughout the adventure.
There was room left for a possible series. I hope this becomes a series.
