      1. I’ve only read one or two of his books. He really does the unexpected for endings which felt a little unsettling to me at the time, I guess. I have been reading a lot of young adult books lately while focusing on my writing. I am enjoying Orson Scott Card’s books, and I have never read science fiction before! Thanks for sharing the review, Tiffany.
