Unaccompanied Sonata


An incredibly powerful story. Card relentlessly follows his premise to its logical conclusion. Not for the faint of heart.

Perhaps the most powerful portrayal of the power of music in SF.

My rating system: I begin with one star being equivalent to a rating of "C -". Progressing upwards, I add ½ star for each step, up to the maximum 5 stars, which is equivalent to a rating of "A"+. I reserve ½ star for BOMBS, there being no option of zero or negative stars.
