With Ender's Shadow I have come to a problem, I refer to this as the "Godfather Dilemna" when a sequal is as good if not better then the original, as was Godfather 2 vs the original. THe Godfather Dilemna is essentially, the sequal being as good but what would it have been without the original. Ender's Shadow is a must read for any fan of the series. It gives great insight into of course Bean but also into that of the teachers, other students at battle school and gives an "objective" appraisal of Ender himself.
If you enjoy history, science and/or the combination thereof then this book is a must. Ever wondered where your planet come from? Ever wondered how it got there or where it might be going? Then this book is a resource which you should have. If you are a college science student then you need this to help connect the dots between the who and the why.
