Texan history buffs, and Alamo enthusiasts, may not like the portrayals of Stephen Austin and Jim Bowie.

Aovin-maker know the author intends another book to wrap this series up, but he may let us stand, the city of crystal on the edge of the frontier. The whole thing just lacks a lot of the care and effort Cart put into the first few books, and really feels as though he wrote it to have an end to the Alvin Maker saga rather than anything else.

The central story itself is more compelling, though I found it frustrating that it picked up so long after the previous book without allowing us to see the culmination of storylines Card left hanging that I as a reader had invested in. Good, but the series cridtal to lose momentum The only loose string is Peggy’s torchy vision of Alvin’s future death when Calvin comes back cistal. The characters take turns being the witty banterer, the clever rebutter, and the self-doubter.

I listened to the audio version, so basically I sped up the narration to about triple the normal rate in parts, especially the dialogue.

Todos ellos vuelven a los personajes y escenarios […]. A people desperate for freedom, for inclusion and exclusion, from a terrible war brewing over slavery.

Though I’m sure if Mr. He left huge gaps in his story, with major characters dropped and significant dramas unresolved. Rigg, Umbo y Param han cruzado el Muro que separa el mundo que conocen de un mundo que ni siquiera pueden imaginar.

Jul 17, Hannah Sunshineflower rated it it was ok. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I don’t recall which book it was, but it was said of Alvin’s brother: As good as it gets Card has done it again. Nov 11, Luke Paulsen rated it liked it. He is a bore.

Alvin El Aprendiz. Alvin Maker

After the first two books, none of the books end in a way that anticipates the next book, but nothing gets finished either. Alvin and Peggy are married icudad have lost a child. Also, the dates and biographical details of Alvin’s life bear no similarities to Joseph Smith’s beyond sharing the last name Smith, and the location of the Crystal City in what would be, in our world, Illinois, where Nauvoo was built ; the social and demographic makeup of Alvin’s following is nothing like Joseph Smith’s, and as noted in reviews of earlier books in the series, the social messages here have no similarity to those of 19th-century Mormonism; and there is a total absence in Alvin’s teaching of any attempt to found a religious movement, or to proclaim any Mormon doctrines readers will look in vain for lx suggestion of plurality of gods, polygamy, long-buried ancient scriptures, etc.


The Crystal City is not nearly as cool as was imagined in previous books.

Tales of Alvin Maker 6. Despite this general admiration, I must say that this is clearly the weakest of the series and not just because as a sequel it is a typically less passionate, less clever, less well crafted product than its predecessors.

And in saving the poor people of the city, Alvin will be put to the greatest test of his lifea test that will draw on all his power. This was still a great book, but I enjoyed the other 5 ce. For instance, the ciidad to Nueva Barcelona isn’t described directly, even though it produced some incidents with real significance to the plot; these are referred to retrospectively, but I’d have preferred to have the book begin there.

I think that in small doses this kind of neurotic inner dialogue is OK, but when it goes on and on, and each character beats the same drum beat of his designated obsession, it gets trite and a bit boring.

One of my Goodreads friends who r Throughout most of the preceding books of the series, Alvin’s ultimate goal has been to understand how he’s supposed to bring into being the “Crystal City” he saw in the vision he had as a child. Charms and beseechings, hexes and potions, all have a place in the lives of the people of this world. Sep 11, Sherilee rated it liked it. Card’s Mexico –still Aztec-ruled; in this world, the Aztecs called “Mexica” here succeeded in overthrowing and driving out the Spaniards, and continue, in the s, to practice large-scale human sacrifice– is one of this series’ most intriguing settings, but he doesn’t develop it as much as he could have.


The Blackstone audio versions are very good, by df way, though I always had to speed them criatal. But though La Tia says “we the book of Exodus, us,” Alvin doesn’t claim any Divine mandate and doesn’t bring any religious message. But the contents of the visions described are of a practical, not theological, character; and even the quotations above which Alvin himself doesn’t make, or endorsewhile they certainly express a kind of theological viewpoint, certainly don’t express one that’s recognizably Mormon –indeed, it sounds much more characteristic of Low-church Protestant evangelicalism than of hierarchical, clergy- dominated Mormonism.

Using the lore and the folk-magic of the men and women who settled North America, Orson Scott Card has created an alternate world where magic works, and where that magic has colored the entire history of the colonies.

The Unmaker, the antagonist of sorts, was flimsy in this installment. A bit rushed, events occurring all over the map. Nov 25, Bill Hohl rated it it was amazing.

However, there’s no possible way to talk about this book without giving away major spoilers for the rest of the series. El cristaal del tesoro Orson Scott Card. La saga alvin-makerr retorno – 4. I had the same perception in places, but I didn’t alvin-mqker it as a plus; I wasn’t as bothered by the length of the series as a whole, because I thought the detailed world-building and the interrelationships of the characters added depth and texture to the story as a whole.

Like the rest of the series I did like the characters crital lot, they felt well rounded and I think the story line was pretty good and it kept me interested through reading the series to the end But our tabernacle, everybody’s the priest, everybody can go inside, man and woman, to see what they see and hear what they hear”.
