Shadow of the Giant
Tuesday, August 2, 2005

Just finished Shadow of the Giant, the third book in Orson Scott Card's "Bean" saga. I missed the second one -- whoopts! -- so I had to mentally fill in a few gaps... It's a decent book. Card is a decent writer. The ideas and plot in this one were very good and the characters interesting and mostly believable. On the other hand, Card always seems a little preachy to me and the moral dilemmas many people rave about generally strike me as, well, silly. I recommend it to fans but not to people who would like to become fans!
