I love fly fishing, so I was looking forward to this. Unfortunately, the story was a bit too predictable. A straight-forward romance story. Not bad, just not my favorite genre.
I loved the performance and (eventually) loved the characters. I look forward to an listen.
I loved this when I read it back in the 90s. It is super informative - the Maoism period was really interesting and my friends from China felt that it was a good depiction of the times. In audio form it was a bit too dense for my easy-listening, multi-tasking habits.
I like most of O.S. Card's books and I wasn't disappointed. I normally enjoy the narrator's voice - we hear him in a lot of OSC books, but it didn't quite work with this tale. Not as captivating as Pathfinder and Lost Gate. We can't wait for the next in those series.
DS11 loved it. It's like Rick Riordan for an older audience. Highschool level language and content. DS is listening to it for the THIRD time and still giggling intermittently. I really enjoyed it as well. Very original.
