Why read it?

1 author picked Enchantment as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Orson Scott Card is best known for his masterful science fiction books like Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead, but Enchantment is my favorite of his. Enchantment is a modern-day take on Sleeping Beauty that is both breathtakingly exciting and wildly romantic. The interpretation of the fairy tale is so clever and the writing is so good, I find myself coming back to this book again and again. Nobody can write deeply good and complex characters quite like Orson Scott Card. He is a master.
