I recall you writing about how much you like the author and the book and thats the reason I picked it up. The book was truly engrossing. And the plot twist you mentioned was a total blindside.

Here's a little primer for those of you who might be interested in reading some of Orson Scott Card's stuff. I'd suggest you start with Ender's Game, then perhaps pick up the three following books in that series (Speaker For The Dead, Xenocide, and Children Of The Mind).
Also, check out the standalone novel Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus.
You won't be sorry.

Just finished The Terror by Dan Simmons. Excellent historical fiction about the doomed Franklin Expedition of 1845... with just a touch of horror thrown in.
