Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The main characters in this volume are largely female, strong and intelligent, a wonderful departure from male-dominated extraterrestrial offerings…An intriguing beginning—readers will clamor for the follow-up.” Kirkus Reviews

Where's Part 2?

The story starts well, we get into the groove of things, follow the kids to the Laddertop, but it ends weird. We're missing the rest of the story. Waiting for parts 2 and 3 before I can really judge it, but for now it would be disappointing to listen too.

not a complete novel, could be good when done

Disappointed to listen to, as the second cd, at most ends the beginning. The audiobook starts well, but doesn't carry the book to completion. Suggest it be completed. Of the beginning, middle, end formula, this is a beginning of a novel only. I really like Scott Card's work, but was disappointed by Laddertop.
