I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Bean was always my favorite character. This it was very enjoyable as he discovers what is truly happening in his world!
Having read ender's game, I really enjoyed this book as a complimentary novel that expanded upon the ideas of the first. It's great for readers who want that extra insight into the world that ender, bean, and the buggers call their own!
This is as good as the original. instead of reading speaker for the dead, and following Enders story line, read this much better "sequel" instead. I lost all interest in this universe after speaker for the dead, but this story rekindled my interest. A better story arc, and a better character to follow after the end of Enders game, if you want more of this story universe read this book instead.
I am immortal. I have inside me blood of kings. I have no rivals. No man can be my equal.
You need to read Ender's Game first. The office will tell you different but I disagree. This is a lovely story that takes place during English game. But you really need to have that story first.
Bean is splendid. I particularly enjoyed the parts which involved Bean's interactions with the teachers. A great story and wonderfully told. It couldn't have bean much better.
