This is one of the most thought-provoking sci-fi audiobooks I have listened to because even now, months after I finished listening, I think about what people say about the lives of the dead. What a novel concept to consider the life from the point of dead person.
Ender and his diligence to tell accurate stories.
It is hard to pick one scene. I liked the flow/journey of discovery that Ender endured to come to the point where he could speak for the dead in the context of their entire lives, good bad, mundane, extraordinary events in everybody's life.
The story line keeps you wondering what will happen next. I can not count how many times I have listened to this book, it gets better each time!
Speaker for the Dead is very political, and the story is much more denser and deep than the first book, Ender's Game.
Card has a vivid imagination. Complex characters and plot. Beautifully presented with multiple speakers brings the story to life. Clearly one of my favorite books on tape.
I enjoyed "Ender's Game", so why wouldn't I want to keep listening to the story? At first, though, I wondered if I had made a wise choice. Yet the story sucked me in, nonetheless. And then, at the very end, the author himself explains the reasons behind the story, explanation of the title, and affirmation of my decision to like this book in the extreme.
If you liked "Ender's Game", you'll really like "Speaker for the Dead".
Probably not. Is a nice book to read but no reason to try it again.
Enders Game, the prequel, is inferior to this book.
The voices just give a pleasant feeling but, sometimes, the constant change of voices confused me since they are not acting, just reading.
Just like the ideas and concepts
