Pathfinder

by Orson Scott Card

{ 2010 | Simon Pulse | 672 pgs }

Maybe my standards are too high, but I feel like every book should be amazing. If I put my time into reading, I want to be blown away. Or at least impressed. I was fortunate to read 2 books this year that amazed me: Beyonders and Pathfinder.

Only a few pages into Pathfinder, I could tell that it was the type of book I’d been waiting for. Very basically, it’s the story of Rigg, who can see the paths taken by living things, even long after the people or animals have gone or died. And it was absolutely fabulous. It doesn’t matter if you’ve read Ender’s Game or not (why on earth not?!), you simply must read Pathfinder.

Oh, and by the way, it’s To Be Continued. Just so you don’t expect a complete ending to the plot.

    Ah! I’m so glad you posted this! I LOVE Card’s sci-fi books (Hidden Empire, Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus, and Ender’s Shadow to name a few…), but I recently read Magic Street and…didn’t love it. I got this out of the library a few months ago, but couldn’t bring myself to read it because I was so let down by the last book of his I read. So excited to read it now!

      Definitely read it! It’s great, I promise. I’ve only read Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow, both of which were great, but this had a different feel and I loved it too.


Be opinionated! We certainly are.
