    Empire: Orson Scott Card(spoilers)

    i have just finsihed OSC's newest book; Empire.

    not as engaging a read as say his memory books or Enderverse, but this si set (here come the spoilers)

    in the here and now, its about how a sencong american civil war could happen and it presents some scary thoughts. this is not a sci fi book by any means of the imagination, it could be called a thriller, there are 3 peices of technology in it that as far as i know do not currently exist but thats it, and they are very easily extrapolated from current sciense(plus 2 of them are known to be under devolpment by the us military, that would be a the battle armor and the highly directional emp generator). the charciters have good devolopment but don't really seem to come alive, they are well rounded not really 2 diemrntional but somethng seems missing from them, i can't tell you what but they don't jump up and kick me. anyway i don't want to give away too much unless someone else who has read it has any comments to make
