I recently was taking some time to relax,and picked up Seventh Son by Orson Scott Card. It is historical fiction about the beginning of America. There are some great stories about folklore and little charms and hexes people do, also some ideas about freedom and doing what you’re meant to do. I really enjoyed the book, because the main character, Alvin Miller Jr. is so curious and smart. His seemingly childish thoughts are very intriguing, and lead to very serious consequences. Its a good tale about growing up and trying to be good, and also about figuring out what you know and what you don’t know, and trying to always do your best. The adventures in the book are interesting to read, making good enough for reading over a short time, but the characters are what really shine. My favorite parts are Alvin trying to puzzle out his view of the way things work, and also his teasing with his siblings. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
