Read from January 17 to 23, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Overall, I was impressed. I expected less, and was pleased with the result. There's a lot of directions Card could have taken this, but overall, he did a good job. There are definitely parallels between this story and the life of Joseph Smith, but it's not a blatant cut-and-paste of history combined with his own imagination.
