A collection of short stories detailing life after some kind of disaster, an atomic bomb or third world war. The Mormon religion is significant in each story, but it doesn't dominate or preach values, instead flows along with the narrative.
I have ready most of Orson Card's books and am a huge fan. This book is very captivating and is great with character development as well as awesome narration. The only down side is that it is a collection of short stories centered around a main theme and I found myself wishing a few of the stories were longer. This is no Ender's Game...but if you like Card then this is a must read!

Classic Card. This is another set of short stories taking place in a possible future US. I can see how this would be more enjoyable to someone who is familiar with the LDS (Mormon) culture, but I don't think is is prerequisite. I found it entertaining, funny, and thought provoking as I do most of Cards works. I enjoyed the afterword almost as much as the stories themselves. Keep them coming.
