Product Description

Review

"An affecting novel full of surprises." --"The New York Times Book Review "on "Ender's Game"

"The novels of Orson Scott Card's Ender series are an intriguing combination of action, military and political strategy, elaborate war games and psychology." --"USA Today"

"Card's prose is powerful here, as is his consideration of mystical and quasi-religious themes. Though billed as the final Ender novel, this story leaves enough mysteries unexplored to justify another entry; and Card fans should find that possibility, like this novel, very welcome indeed." "--Publishers Weekly "(starred review) on "Children of the Mind"

"Orson Scott Card made a strong case for being the best writer science fiction has to offer." --"The ""Houston"" Post "on" Xenocide"

"""There aren't too many recent sf novels we can confidently call truly moral works, but "Speaker for the Dead" is one. It's a completely gripping story." --"The Toronto Star""" "An undeniable heavyweight . . . This book combines Card's quirky style with his hard ethical dilemmas and sharply drawn portraits." "--New York Daily News "on "Ender's Game"

"This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard." --"Booklist" on "Ender's Game"

Book Description

The direct sequel to the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning bestseller, ENDER'S GAME.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read if you're a fan of the series 29 Nov. 2008
Format:Hardcover
...Spends more time winding up loose plot threads than it does actually spinning story. Being sandwiched inbetween two chapters of Ender's Game, for the most part, that's somewhat unsurprising, perhaps, but it really doesn't move the story on at all.

Essential if you follow the series, and care about what happens to character like Graff. Fills in the gap at the end of Ender's Game wonderfully.

Just don't expect it to stand on its own merits.

Strictly for fans of the series. Also completely incomprehensible if you haven't read the "Shadow" saga.

That said, I've enjoyed it. Genuinely worth the read. Wish it had a little more story, but that's for Shadows in Flight to wind up, I suppose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 30 Dec. 2008
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Where did Ender disappear to after he saved planet Earth from the formics? What happened to Peter and his bid for world domination, to Valentine in Peter's shadow, and to the human race and its government between ENDER'S GAME and SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD?

Finally, Orson Scott Card provides the missing story in the ENDER series that readers have been waiting for! Card writes with his characteristic straightforward style that, though simple, belies the hidden ethical dilemmas presented to the characters every step of the way. And through it all, the story is as gripping as ENDER'S GAME and will keep you up all night until you reach the book's AWESOME conclusion.

Having saved the world from a race of super intelligent and ruthless fighting formics, Ender is exiled to the far reaches of space under the pretension of governing and developing a new colony for humans on a new planet. As always, the government plays an underhanded game in sending him off and all his doings, as Earth and its countries are still at war and unsettled after Ender and the other children of his Battle School won the war. Seen as "Earth's most deadly weapon," Ender soon guesses he will never return to Earth, his family, or any semblance of the life he once knew.

Instead, he begins to research his new obsession, the formic race he destroyed. The new colony he is going to is built on an old formic planet, so Ender goes willingly into hyperspace, aging only two years while everyone on Earth ages forty years. Valentine escapes the plans of Peter on Earth to join Ender in space and secretly, Ender is relieved to have someone he can trust.

I loved the Ender books and looked forward to reading this with great anticipation, but this was incredibly disappointing. Characters that were previously interesting and strong seemed all of a sudden weak and forgettable.

And I'm sorry but the pictures of the characters after every few chapters were just horrible and ill thought out! When you've read so many Ender books over the years, and given the excellent characterization you build up an image of the characters in your mind, and then to see them illustrated poorly like cartoon characters ruins that image in one fell swoop. Seeing Bean as some cartoon giant just erased the strong somewhat dark image that had been depicted over a number of great books.

While this book might fill in a few gaps I wish I hadn't read it because previously I remember the Ender series as powerful, exciting, sometimes moving - but reading this has nullified that and somewhat spoiled the feel of the whole series.

Sorry to be negative but I don't think OSC did justice to his magnificent serious with this book, quite the opposite in fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great novel 29 Nov. 2009
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Fan's of Card have long called for a direct sequel to Enders Game which he has finally been released by his UK publisher Orbit. Whilst it is, as promised a direct sequel, the novel is one that deals with a great many lose threads from other novels in the series as well as giving the reader the chance to get to know the characters on a more personal level. Each one jumps from the page with the guilt suffered by the principle protagonist weighing heavily on his mind for the Xenocide (Alien Species Genocide) of Earth's Enemies. Beautifully written it's a tale that really will give the readers contemplative thoughts about mankind's attitudes as well as getting to know the emotional contexts faced by survivors of a war that they never wanted to fight. It's a great offering and with Card's humour wrapped into his gorgeous descriptive pieces its definitely been one of my favourite acquisitions of the year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor addition to the Ender series 13 Jan. 2010
By Wibblah
Format:Paperback
I'm not sure whether the author actually wanted to write this book or ultimately gave into pressure from the publisher and fans to at least partially complete the story of Ender. I suspect the latter given there is very little additional plot in this story. Seemingly the writer has taken some of the few remaining open threads from the earlier books and stretched them out with some additional and ultimately pointless dead-end plots. It's quite possible that some of these ancillary characters created in this book may re-appear but they were so dull or predictable I very much doubt that is the intention. Instead we are left with a book that in all honestly could have been reduced to about a dozen pages with the rest seemingly meaningless discussions and debates between characters and plots that just don't matter and frankly would be better suited to a soap opera.

Unsure if this will be the final book on the series, and despite the not so stellar reports I had to read it on the strength of the overall series. That said, I don't think I will have the motivation to pick up the next book in the series if it ever comes out.

Best avoided unless you have a lot of spare time and truly loved the earlier books.

4.0 out of 5 stars read it and enjoy.
A very good read. Follows on directly from Enders Game, a different kind of story, but well worth the effort.

A nice Ender fix for those like me who always want to read more about the characters we know but not up to Enders game or Enders shadow standard.

not as good as Ender's Game but then few sequels are as good as the first book. It is definitely worth buying and reading though.

All the Ender books after "Ender's Game" and "Speaker For The Dead" are disappointing in comparison. They're reasonably entertaining and are of interest to the completist. Read more
