I loved Ender's Game and Speaker (5 stars each) and I downloaded Xenocide and Children with great anticipation before I had even finished Speaker. Unfortunately, Xenocide is 5% plot and 95% philosophical ramblings on gods, servants, good, and evil. By the end, I found myself fast-forwarding through several passages, which I almost never do. Very disappointing!
This book was wonderful! I was leery of investing my time in such a large book (that follows characters over roughly 40 years) but I found myself wishing that it was longer. I was actually sad when I started the last section of the audio book because I knew that it was almost over. Highly recommended.
