I read "Wyrms" and then "Ender's Game" back when I would read just about any science fiction available, and then never felt any desire to re-read them (which I do with every book that I like) or to read anything else of Card's. My main problems (as I perceive them) with his writing were: a) cardboard characters, except for one main character; b) the undercurrent of sadism. I guess I have to credit him with technique, but I am amazed by how many people seem to consider him a good writer. If I could live my life over again (not that I want to), among many better choices I would make would be to save the couple of bucks I spent on those two paperbacks.
