did not like it
bookshelves: didn-t-finish

Okay...I've read a few books by Orson Scott Card, and most of them are pretty good. Most of them. Every now and then I guess everyone has a misstep. IN MY OPINION this is one of Card's.

I knew early on I was in trouble as the homeless man of mystery carried off the apparently still born baby and the domestic scenes rolled on setting the scene for our entry into wonder.

We just had trouble getting there.

This was supposed to be inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream. But I just didn't find the expected magic. Some seem to like this book, but I just didn't care for it and have a lot of books waiting...including another Card book, so not for me.
