I am a huge fan of Orson Scott Card. The first one of his novels that I read was Speaker for the Dead, which was a gift from a friend who knew the kind of books I liked to read. From there I went on to collect the whole series and the Shadow series too, all of which are excellent. The stories really get to me, I have shed countless tears over Speaker and Xenocide, for instance.

The Alvin Maker Saga I found harder to get into, possibly because of the type of language OSC uses in these books. I also found Alvin's character very frustrating at times. Having said that, still an enjoyable read and well worth checking out if you can get past the very conversational language of the books.

I hope he will continue to write interesting and intriguing novels.
