And besides... I hear it doesn't hold a candle to the original, anyway.
I admit that I've never read any of Card's work, but I always have to wonder whether his (admitted) opinions on social hot-button topics are really
that obvious in his writing... or do people tend to shoe-horn his publicly stated, "real-world" opinions into his fictional work where it otherwise might not exist—without razor-thin analogies and biased analysis?
Either way... it's a perfect example of why I try to be as ignorant of authors personal opinions/politics as I can be. If I find something in their writing that doesn't quite sit right with me, I may stop reading, but I prefer to let their "officially" published words rule my opinions.
