About this item
"Orson Scott Card brings whimsy to the forefront of his latest novel, A Town Divided by Christmas...One of Card's strengths as a writer is his ability to take intelligent protagonists and make them not only relatable but also humorous through clever dialogue and introspection. From the first page, Spunk pulls readers into a world full of scientific questioning, but in a way that is interesting and compelling for readers of any background. Though the book is more like a novella...it moves swiftly through pages of genetic calculation and data collection through a plot that contains great character quips and quirks, making it feel like a fuller text than it is...A quick and fun read with substance that is certainly worth the while."-- "San Francisco Book Review"
