    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    DJM says: "Entertaining and Irritating."
    "O. Card the master of coming of age stories."

    Story
    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The narrators took turns reading sections of the book. To be honest I didn't realize that was happening at first. Everyone did such a good job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were numerous parts in the story that made me laugh out loud. I think you may need to be a geek or serious friends with a geek to get those jokes.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book. My only mistake was starting to listen to it before the rest of the series was out. As always Mr. Card sets up the next book perfectly so you want to go straight into it. Now I have to wait.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 41 mins)

    Story
    (1744)

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book because everyone I talked with raved about it. It seemed like a story that I would enjoy. I rarely give up on a book but I just couldn't bring myself to finish this one. I can't tell if it was the narrator or just that the story didn't seem to move. I never got past the kindergarten years.
