I've read lots of excellent books by Orson Scott Card, and lately I've read lots of not-so-good books by Orson Scott Card. This one, about a young man with an "interesting" problem, was one of his better books. It's not quite up there with Ender's Game, but it's well-written and fast-paced. ( )

Mick figured out when he was a child that there was something odd about himself. When angry at someone, he could "kill" them by striking them with cancer. He has tried hard to control this because he does not want to be responsible for killing anyone..

It was o.k. It just didn't live up to the description for me, but it was still o.k., just not as good as I'd hoped. It's very short, though, so it didn't take long to listen to. ( )

Quick fun read. Reminds me a little bit of the Heroes TV show. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812508548, Mass Market Paperback)

Mick Winger is only seventeen -- and already he's killed over a dozen people. Not on purpose; he never meant to hurt anyone. But when Mick gets angry, people die, even the people he loves the most. Now he's on the run from his own terrible talent, and from those who would use his power for their own obscene purposes. But Mick is not alone. There are others like him. And if he will not join them, they will make him pay -- Eye for Eye.

Orson Scott Card is one of the world's best-loved writers, winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards two years in a row. He is author of Ender's Game and many New York Times bestsellers. Card's latest novels are Shadow of the Giant and Magic Street. This recording features Stefan Rudnicki, who has narrated around 100 audiobooks, receiving an Audie for his solo narration on Orson Scott Card's Lost Boys and Earphones Awards for his productions of Card's Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead and Crystal City.
