Read full description of the books:
In a word: Tiresome.
If you're considering buying/ reading this one, be aware that Card did not write it. It's based on one of his earliest short stories, and he collaborated with Aaron Johnston in planning it, but I have no doubt that every actual word was written by Aaron Johnston. Bless his heart.
The science was boring and predictable (probably made a great and creepy short story 20+ years ago), the characterization was unbelievably superficial, the dialogue was painful. The evil characters were Dr. Evil-style evil. Bleah.
So why did I keep reading? Well, I've been abandoning a LOT of books recently, and I wanted to actually finish one I'd finished 2/3 of, instead of leaving it lying on my nightstand for months...also, I'd paid full price (at least in paperback). And to be fair, the plotting was interesting enough that I wanted to see how it would resolve. (Thus the 2 stars.) But overall, it read like the bad novelization of an utterly forgettable action movie.
