Visitors (Pathfinder, #3) This book was quite the letdown for me, but mainly because I had such high hopes for it The ending of Ruins was so engaging and then Card decided to write 600 pages ofstuff As Card is known to do, the plot in Visitors often took the sidekick role to the exploration of ancient civilizations or irrelevant side stories However, the book kept me interested enough throughout and the ending was satisfying enough with a side of meh.Sadly, this book convinced me of what I hav Meh I finished this book because I felt like I had to finish up the series My conclusion after reading this and several other of Card s recent books is that he is wonderful at inventing compelling worlds, but terrible at finishing stories All of the series of his I ve read Alvin Maker, Ender s Game shadow, pathfinder, gatekeeper have started out really well, but at some point in each of these, I have found myself really disappointed I think he maybe just needs to learn when to leave someth Meh I finished this book because I felt like I had to finish up the series My conclusion after reading this and several other of Card s recent books is that he is wonderful at inventing compelling worlds, but terrible at finishing stories All of the series of his I ve read Alvin Maker, Ender s Game shadow, pathfinder, gatekeeper have started out really well, but at some point in each of these, I have found myself really disappointed I think he maybe just needs to learn when to leave something alone.This book started out pretty poorly, kind of tried to pick up here and there, but overall was a disappointment He continued to do what he did in the previous book ruins, I think where he got too excited about pontificating on the physics and theory of time travel You can definitely tell that he lost his way writing this I was not only unimpressed by the writing, the story also left me wanting I have heard that he sort of got stuck with how to end this book, and it definitely shows I think I ve From The Internationally Bestselling Author Of Ender S Game Comes The Riveting Finale To The Story Of Rigg, A Teenager Who Possesses A Secret Talent That Allows Him To See The Paths Of People S Pasts.In Pathfinder, Rigg Joined Forces With Another Teen With Special Talents On A Quest To Find Rigg S Sister And Discover The True Depth And Significance Of Their Powers Then Rigg S Story Continued In Ruins As He Was Tasked To Decipher The Paths Of The Past Before The Arrival Of A Destructive Force With Deadly Intentions Now, In Visitors, Rigg S Journey Comes To An Epic And Explosive Conclusion As Everything That Has Been Building Up Finally Comes To Pass, And Rigg Is Forced To Put His Powers To The Test In Order To Save His World And End The War Once And For All. I was attending Orson Scott Card s Writing Workshop this year when I heard him mentioning how difficult it was for him to wrap up writing this book Seems that he had this inspiring idea to write a new series, one that he truly thought was one of his best, and then had only one, big problem he had no idea how to end the story I was shocked to hear this The Pathfinder series was easily my favorite of his since the original Ender s Game Yet ss creative as this project was and he had written I was attending Orson Scott Card s Writing Workshop this year when I heard him mentioning how difficult it was for him to wrap up writing this book Seems that he had t I thoroughly enjoyed the Pathfinder series by Orson Scott Card Following a story through a well contrived set of time traveling rules or lack thereof , while juggling the moral responsibility and accountability for such an ability remained interesting throughout all three books The series started with discovery of the abilities, approached the surface level implications, and then explored the boundaries of the rules until ultimately in this third book Visitors, finding obligation and peace wi I thoroughly enjoyed the Pathfinder series by Orson Scott Card Following a story through a well contrived set of time traveling rules or lack thereof , while juggling the moral responsibility and accountability for such an ability remained interesting throughout all three books The series started with discovery of the abilities, approached the surface level implications, and then explored the boundaries of the rules until ultimately in this third book Visitors, finding obligation and peace within the responsibilities of possessing the varying time travel abilities While the overall story was quite complex, it was conveyed in a manner of depth that was well thought out Good, but I didn t enjoy it as much as the first two books in the series. Sigh.First things first go back and reread the 2nd book before you read this one The plot is extremely intricate and complex but not really in a good way and if there is longer than a month gap between the books you ll forget too much Actual Review So much potential, wasted All the cool threads, concepts, and storylines don t really reslove themselves, or when they do its deus ex machina I had my issues with the first two books, but the suspense, characters, and general sci fi setting m Sigh.First things first go back and reread the 2nd book before you read this one The plot is extremely intricate and complex but not really in a good way and if there is longer than a month gap between the books you ll forget too much Actual Review So much potential, wasted All the cool threads, co This is the worst book Card has ever written Worse than Empire That may be slightly unfair to this book, which is merely the culmination of the worst series he s ever written While I didn t love book 1, there were a lot of possibilities Book 2 seemed to be steering into terrible danger of there were a lot of red flags, but I had faith that Card had a vision for this story, and the redemption of the third book would be worth it.Part of the problem is the YA label Everything Card has ever wri This is the worst book Card has ever written Worse than Empire That may be slightly unfair to this book, which is merely the culmination of the worst series he s ever written While I didn t love book 1, there were a lot of possibilities Book 2 seemed to be steering into terrible danger of there were a lot of red flags, but I had faith that Card had a vision for this story, and the redemption of the third book would be worth it.Part of the problem is the YA label Everything Card has ever written is YA by the standard of this book This series is as intellectually difficult as anything he s ever written The time travel rules are almost ridiculously complex and often had a lazy, make it up as you go Only very bright young adults would really enjoy the story The dialog and characters, on the other hand, could only appeal to the under 9 crowd I don t know if Card fired his old editor, felt he couldn t listen to his editor any, felt required to make a deadli This is definitely not Card s best work There wasretelling of the story from the previous two books than I care for I read the previous books and do not want to go over it again, I want new story.As in the previous book, the dialogue between the characters got old They spend a lot of time bickering over pointless things that have nothing to do with the story After we meet Wheaton and his daughter, the characters all degenerate to the same personality Almost every character makes snide This is definitely not Card s best work There wasretelling of the story from the previous two books than I care for I read the previous books and do not want to go over it again, I want new story.As in the previous book, the dialogue between the characters got old They spend a lot of time bickering over pointless things that have nothing to do with the story After we meet Wheaton and his daughter, the characters all degenerate to the same personality Almost every character makes snide and childish comments about whatever someone else says I couldn t tell them apart by the end of the book.The first 3 4 of the book basically goes nowhere Some new characters are introduced that end up being just like the other characters But the plot goes nowhere Do we really need to do all that business with Wheaton s evolutionary theories and travelling back in time to validate them Then in the last 100 pages all the loose ends are quickly and neatly ti I wish I could go back in time and keep myself from reading this series It really needed editing 3 4 of the book was pointless filler and endless monotonous conversation where everyone had the same voice Even the conclusion felt lacking By the end I didn t care if the destroyers succeeded or not.
