Lots of philosophical ramblings
on 3 May 2017
I very much enjoyed the ended series and was looking forward to this spin off. Enders shadow was very different Friday m the ended series as warned by the author but I did enjoy it. The character development was good and the story fleshed out the world of ender in an interesting way. However I really did not enjoy the follow on books in the series. The characters indulged in an awful lot navel gazing which grew tiresome after a while and the plot grew more and more unbelievable as the complexities of world politics were simplified with silly , and to
My taste mildly offensive stereotypes. The plot surrounding the main "baddy" and also became more and more contrived and unrealistic to the point where I lost interest. I abandoned the last book half way through. That said .... the first book was definitely worth reading.
