©1990 Orson Scott Card; (P)2009 Phoenix
And Buffalo George
This is a familiar OSC theme: a child bred to be a weapon. Like Ender's game. A very intrigue ridden, though-provoking story. Quick read, quick review.
one of my favorite authors. His story he has so much potential and then fell short because of its very short nature. I hope someday he will fill this out to a real novel.
Sorry, I like Orson Scott Card, but this is one to avoid. The protagonist kills lots of people, and does not know why. There is a bit of mental/psychic tension, etc. This is not entertaining to me. Critics may think otherwise, and like this book for some reason. I rarely like the stuff critics like, so if you are looking for something to listen to on your commute, I'd avoid this one. On the other hand, if your goal is to torture critical thinking skills into the head of a high school student, you might consider it.
