Incredible thought provoking book, makes you think and wonder about the threats of man evolving and adopting a god-like perspective on himself. When will progress be enough?
Loved the story, the characters, the setting and everything just as in all of the other books in the Enderverse series, however, it's shortness left a HUGE void... I would have preferred to wait more time for a COMPLETE book.
When Bean discovers that their previous beliefs about the Hive Queens was terribly wrong! This opens up doors and leaves question to be, hopefully, answered in subsequent books.
Excellent as always!
When Bean was able to stand and take a few steps, freed by the knowledge that his children would be OK.
With all due respect to Mr. Card, his explanation about making this book short in order for it to be affordable and therefore bought on impulse is RIDICULOUS, speccially when you consider the fact that this is the most recent book in a series expanding now 10 (yes, TEN!) books... I felt ripped off, and not so much for the money as for the huge expectations created for this book as well as the waiting period for the next one.
This is, undoubtedly, the best book of the trilogy though not for much since all three are exceptional... It is an absolute shame we will never be able to know what happens next with "the girl with the dragon tatoo". The ending was perfect and there were no loose ends, however, Mr. Larsson would have surely delighted us with more adventures of the unlikely couple of Salander and Blomqvist.
Finally, for a great book, a great narrator... It's hard to think of someone better for Larsson's books than Simon Vance. His voice, his accent and his characterizations are right on the mark.
