    Story
    (1231)

    Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

    Joshua says: "A Change of Perspective"
    "Weakest Enderverse book yet"
    Overall

    This book is suppose to elaborate the space between Ender's game and Speaker for the Dead and also tie the Ender books to the Shadow saga.
    The book has a few interesting themes but suffers from slow pacing an and a lack of major events occurring. There are also awkward moments of logic and plot progression as the story attempts to tie three very different books together. Orson Scott Card is simply too fettered by his consistency obligations to the other books and the story suffers terribly because of it.
    Ultimately this book never transcends what it is: a filler for hardcore Enderverse fans.
    I would not recommend this book to anyone who has yet to read and enjoyed the other Ender and Shadow saga books.

    Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers - creative and emphatic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't.

    Frank J. Reda says: "On the precipice of genius (not quite)..."
    "Absolutely Awful"
    Overall

    Was completely not what I expected. The glorified pulp self-help book belongs on the rack in a grocery store check-out aisle right beside the Secret and other non-sense peddled by Oprah.
