    In celebration of the week-long, once-in-a-decade rite of Apert, the fras and suurs prepare to venture outside the concent's gates - opening them wide at the same time to welcome the curious "extras" in. During his first Apert as a fra, Erasmus eagerly anticipates reconnecting with the landmarks and family he hasn't seen since he was "collected". But before the week is out, both the existence he abandoned and the one he embraced will stand poised on the perilous brink of cataclysmic change.

    Richard says: "Tour de force"

    Overall

    Before buying this book I read the reviews and realized that the negative reviews were all complaints about vocabulary. Most great novels in this genre have their own language. Orson Scott Card uses roots that should be familiar to those who appreciate words. If as a child you read the dictionary for fun you shouldn't have a problem.

    I found myself into part 4 before I realized it. The plot and story line are wonderful, exciting and stimulating to this old dreamer.

    The only complaint comes from my wife trying to get my attention. If you liked his previous books you will love this. I can't wait for more.
