A brilliant book in its own right. A riviting read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ender's Shadow: Book 1 of The Shadow Saga (Hardcover)
Ender's shadow is a book about ender's game but from "Beans" perspective. But it isn't ender's game! It does not detract from the origianl nor pay homage to it. Ender's shadow stands out as a brilliant, inspired, inspirational and riveting read all on it's own, via it's own merit.
It doesn't matter if you've read ender's game or not, you will still love this book. I personally raved about ender's game, but in it's subtle ways I prefer this one. I started reading it at 10am and was still doing so at 4.30am, it was so captivating and spellbinding that i just did not want to put it down until I had finished it.
In all honesty this is probably one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure to read. It is emotional, inspired, enthralling, astounding, spellbinding, a true unmitigated work of art. It is obviously well researched and well loved by the author and deservedly so.
IF YOU ONLY READ ONE BOOK THIS YEAR READ THIS ONE! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED !
