Book finished: Earth Unaware

Earth Unaware by Orson Scot Card

★★★★☆

Card's usual excellent storytelling. Shame about the horrible grasp of orbital mechanics, especially when wrong science becomes a plot point, but those are minor and I can ignore them for the sake of a decent story. Good characters, good story. It's been a long time since I was in this universe, it was fun to visit.

I did avoid Card for a few years, but finally I decided to ignore his character and politics and just enjoy the story.

The audiobook came from my library. The primary narrator gets a little over excited during action scenes, but it is effective. I think he could dial it back about 5% though. Also the secondary male narrator needs to learn how to pronounce ecliptic.
