It is the only book I ever read twice and i would ask Orson Scott Card, if i ever met him...If he still feels that in order to truly appreciate life you must first endure pain, loss, and hard times. I for one agree with it and since then has been a real eye opener for me.

I agree. It's my favorite OSC book (and my second favorite overall) but it doesn't seem to get much love from most people for some reason.

I tried to start some discussion about it here (specifically about the similarities between it and Lois Lowry's The Giver - which if you haven't read you might want to do; it's an easy read) but it died out pretty quickly. Maybe I started the thread in the wrong subforum though.

You only read it twice? And that's the only book you've ever read twice? There are few good books I *haven't* read twice if I've read them once. Read more.

Certainly one of my favorite books as well. I bought it again on my phone because my dad has the hard copy about an hour away. Plenty of cool characters in this book.

The Worthing Saga was the second OSC book I read. It's definitely in my top 3 for OSC novels. I've read Ender's Game about seven times, but I've only read the Worthing Saga once. It's a great story, but I lost the book so I wasn't able to dive back in. I'll have to pick it up again. I really enjoyed it.

Huh. I've had this one sitting on my shelf for a while now, never got around to it. Guess I'll have to move it up in priority.

Read it. Decent book. Jason Worthing was a monster.

Well, yes, he does very explicitly acknowledge taking the role of Satan. The question is, do we need the monster?
