I think this will be my last foray into the world of Orson Scott Card. I loved Ender's Game when I read it in university but since then, have not found another book of his that I enjoyed. The author spends far too much time telling rather than showing. The book includes long sections in which Danny finds out how his powers work but never seems to actually DO anything with them. I found these sections confusing and extremely boring. It is as if Orson Scott Card is trying to explain advanced physics to my grade 7 students.
