It came near to destroying humanity.
After a long, long time of decadence and stagnation, a few seed ships were sent out to save our species. They carried human embryos and supplies and teaching robots and one man. The Worthing Saga is the story of one of these men, Jason Worthing, and the world he found for the seed he carried.
Orson Scott Card is "a master of the art of storytelling" (Booklist), and The Worthing Saga is a story that only he could have written.

This book is fairly typical of Orson Scott Card. It's a look at society's behavior and an odd parallel to biblical history of sorts. Given a chance to start a new world from scratch, could you have done better?
The first two thirds or so were pretty good. The last third fealt like it was thrown in to make the book longer. Not really well tied in. An OK book all together though.
This is not one of his best books. It is in fact a little boring. After reading most of his work I was dissappointed in the story (or stories)which have no focus. The book just dies.
"The Worthing Saga" is a novel that went through many phases of publishing each time becoming more refined by the author, Orson Scott Card. The final manifestation of this work is a stand alone novel that will erase the world around you while you listen and imagine the web of charachters and worlds that Card weaves. Truly, this audio book, is one that everybody should purchase and enjoy.
