The story is standard Card excellence, except that it is only half a story. At the end Card himself admits that this was an "experiment" with a new length: half a novel length as an impulse buy. (Too bad we can't spend half a credit)
The result is that just when a typical story is really ramping up for the "best part" this story is winding down to start tying up the loose ends. When I saw there was only an hour left on my iPhone I went to download part 2 - only to discover there was no part 2. So this is a great setup for the next book but a bit light for a stand alone read.
Performance wise two of the readers were great, but the third had such a low voice it sounded like a bad impression. It was so bass filled that it was distracting from the content. Not sure why anyone would think a 5 year old child should be read by such a voice.
