Good but confusing
I would agree with the other reviewers - I would say in it's defence that when you stick with it, it does get easier and the story does pan out eventually to a very good one. I think it is the skill of the writer to keep things clear and the listener/reader engaged. Unfortunately, this one is a struggle at this level for at least the first half.
People who have listened to a lot of the Orson Scott Card books will be familiar with the narrator - Scott Brick. Scott can admittedly overdo the emotion sometimes. In relating a pretty innocuous piece of text, he can sound like he is trying to relay it whilst a vice is slowly being tightened around his head.
In the end, I enjoyed this book, with it's interesting characters and plot. The only concern I have, is how much will I remember of it all by the time installment 2 arrives?
This was borderline three/four-star and I have given it the benefit of the doubt!

Warning - Part of a Trilogy
Warning Audible do not seem to be releasing the second two volumes of this trilogy to customers in the UK. So I cannot recommend it. It is a decent story but what use is one part of of a trilogy
