    "another great collection by Card"

    I am a huge fan of card so my review may be biased. This was another great read (listen). Card does a wonderful job with his charecter development. This book is a collection of short stories that are focused around a central theme. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I found myself wishing each short story had been longer. Just like with the other card books, same wonderful narrators. Even though I am not a mormon and there are many mormon charecters in this book, I would suggest you give it a try.
