Description

Alvin is a Maker, the first to be born in a century. Now a grown man and a journeyman smith, Alvin has returned to his family in the town of Vigor Church. He will share in their isolation, work as a blacksmith, and try to teach anyone who wishes to learn the knack of being a Maker. For Alvin has had a vision of the Crystal City he will build, and he knows that he cannot build it alone. But he has left behind, in Hatrack River, true friends as well as enemies. And his ancient foe, the Unmaker, whose cruel whispers and deadly plots have threatened Alvin's life at every turn, has found new hands to do his work of destruction.

Great Every Time

I've listened to this book (actually the whole series) multiple times. Card is a great writer and the voices are awesome. The Alvin Maker series is one great series worth listening to over and over.

Great series, but Orson tends to get long winded

I just finished Journeyman in this undeniably beuatiful series, but at several places in the book I got itchy and irritated. Orson Scott Card tends to weave more and more pious-sounding religious undertones into the story and, at least to my taste, diverges from his narrrative at several very suspenseful places to long-winded, not really interesting explanations, philosophical analyses and what have you. This is not to say you should stop reading the series, just that I often thought: man, get ON with it!
Nevertheless: a story that captures you.

The 18th Century Age of Exploration Recast

I found this book to be a remarkable and engaging recast of the American Frontier progression across the continent. The mystical fascination of alchemical gifts, 'knacks,' provides some of the actual background that excited the early Mormon movement into a more universal, modern compositon in the Alvin series is an inspiriation for those of us with similar interest if not religious affiliation. A great read years ago and audio revisit now.

Many lose ends tied. Great story set up

The way so many things were tied back together was flawless. Card has a magnificent way of creating personalities and has some true insight into the human psyche.

Multiple readers = little boredom

The part of the story that fascinates me most, is how he twists and turns the plot so there's no way to know what is coming next. I love the historical periodic setting. And I especially love the potential that he builds into each character. I'm really learning to love these guys, it's a great story.

A good addition

All I can say is this is another well wirtten and preformed piece of the Alvin Maker Story. Thou Mr. Card is clearly a master of novels of all kinds, he gives us here something far better than a Journeyman's piece.

Getting better

The story line is improving, but still too much wordiness and too little substance, particularly with Cal

Law & Order: OSC

Basically just Law & Order: Orson Scott Card edition. It was enjoyable enough because of the character personas established in the previous books, but there were too many boring, mostly uneventful parts
