    Songmaster characters á 7 Songmasterthis is truly my favorite scifi book of all time it's got orphaned children gay uestioning sex weird psychic powers enough tragedy to make me cry and bards How could I not love it well I did when I was 14 I really should ualify my sci fi reviews since many of these are from my teenage years and it could be that if I read them now I'd be like huh what is this crap like when you watch a cartoon movie like The Last Unicorn as an adult and think now why does that tree have boobs But I bet that since this is Orson Scott Card and he has so many crown masterpieces in his oeuvre that it is still good even as a jaded older person

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterBut if you are going to do something to someone that causes them terrible pain should the orgasm shouldn't you TELL them about this I don't want to read this book again It's disturbing But mainly because I'm just not sure gay people WORK like thatThis book is like several books crammed into one It's Ender's Game with singing instead of laser tag It has a terrible underlying message about being gay too OSC does NOT understand how gay people work Or straight people for that matter I'm sorry but most people don't look at a kid that way If they do they need help Though there are those older women who want Justin Bieber and Taylor Lautner But they were in their teens at least High teens I don't think it's RIGHT but they were not prepubescent kids Gay dudes don't go ooo look at that kid cringes when he is 15 and frigging looks 11 OR 12 It didn't seem like any of the other dudes he harped on were teens except when he was a teen so WTF was up with this It's so insulting on a lot of level

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterThis book was really nothing like what I expected Its actually a great deal like Ender's Game A young boy grows up as a prodigy a genius and the best of the best among a group of exceptionally talented children He has a great talent for reading and understanding people and even loving his enemies After he has accomplished what is expected of him he is sent away and perhaps there is a little bit of Bean mixed in because he goes on to rule Earth What surprised me the most about this book was that the boy now a teenager has a brief romance with another man about half way through the book and it is uite known that OSC is a colossal homophobe So I was so confused that I had to look into this to try to understand how he could h

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterI wanted to like this book honestly I did I'm a fan of Card's 'Ender' books and the synopsis to Songmaster was one of the most intriguing I've ever come across While reading however I found myself constantly uestioning the point of the plot Songmaster is uite frankly a poor story Poorly composed and poorly told It's little than a series of uninteresting things occurring one after the next with no larger story arc and virtually no entertainment valueThe various sexual themescontent are also rather unnerving mainly because there doesn't seem to be any need for it Anyone who knows anything about Orson Scott Card knows he's a Mormon and huge anti gay whackjob Why he feels the need therefore to inject so much homosexuality into this story is peculiar to say the leas

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterI can't help but find this a remarkable book in many ways The characters really live for me and several are uite complex certainly not simple to evaluate as good or evil And I loved the world Card created of the Songhouse This is a place where even common communications are made by song I fell in love with Orson Scott Card's writing after discovering his Ender books The theme of those books is tolerance and trying to understand the Other And the theme of this one is love of all kinds The children brought to be trained to the Songhouse are orphans; when the young and gifted Ansset who this novel is centered upon is brought there another child comforts him with the house's Love Song which is repeated at key moments“I will never hurt youI will always help youIf you are hungryI'll give you my foodIf you are frightenedI am your friendI love you nowAnd love does not end” Including by the way love between two men and I don't mean platonic Es

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterThis is a very very strange novel I've been a fan of OSC since I was very young and since I was a young teen I've been very disturbed by the almost violent intolerance of homosexuality he expresses in his essays This attitude seemed so at odds with the values woven into the stories of Ender and Bean stories of children who are different but good and catch a lot of crap for it but save their tormentors anywayThis book

    Songmaster characters á 7 SongmasterThis is hands down my favorite fiction book of all time It's unfortunate that it is usally classified and shelved as science fiction which it is not The occasional travel from one planet to another does not science fiction make This book alone made me an Orson Scott Card fan for life and because of it I can forgive him the various other authorial sins which
