Helpful Score: 2

This book definitely wasn't one of Orson Scott Card's better novels. The first 130 pages were very slow, and I think Card could have summed up Quentin's life and the relationship with Madeleine more efficiently. After the 130 page mark I got excited about the direction the book was taking, and I wondered if it would end up like Palahniuk's Fight Club or Matheson's Somewhere in Time. However, I was quickly disappointed as I kept reading because nothing was really happening. I felt that the book didn't have much a plot until the last few chapters.
I definitely think OSC should stick to writing books with stronger sci-fi/fantasy themes.
