"Thought-provoking, insightful, and powerfully written." (School Library Journal)
"As a storyteller, Card excels in portraying the quiet drama of wars fought not on battlefields but in the hearts and minds of his characters." (Library Journal)
Great cultures and situations for the characters to find themselves. But often they feel artificially produced instead of happening organically.
I like the ender series so far. Interesting story, some intriguing thought experiments. Though there is a little too much foreign language and catholic theology for my tastes.
While the novel may not have twists and turns nor action packed moments, it is an extremely interesting thought experiment, all with Card's delightfully written dialogues and internal monologues. Excellent purchase for any fan of Speaker for the Dead.
really like the Ender stories and looking forward to the next book. i just hppe our species can get past the religion thing in 3000 yrars.... excellent reading by the readers.
If you're like me and you want to keep following Ender Wiggins's life (the guy is straight up awesome), than read this next book. Xenocide is a huge, complex story that dives even deeper into the events of Speaker for the Dead, and I highly recommend it if you enjoyed the last book. I'm excited to read Children of the Mind, which I've come to understand is basically Part 2 of Xenocide.
The amount of Religions and their rules really gets tedious. If there was more than only one spiritual character the religious aspects would have provided contrast instead of tedium. I was disappointed.
Wonderful performance continues from the previous works in the series, Card delves deep into the wonders that a future might have in store for us
I am an avid reader and it is hard to keep me satisfied. Always looking for something new and different to read.
This book was saved by it's characters, and the set of problems they each were trying to find answers for. If not for this, the technical overload would discourage many a listener.
I found myself at times totally zoning as the depth of discussion of scientific ideas were discussed. The ideas were interesting, just took a while to absorb. The characters were solid and interesting as usual with OSC. Almost traded the book in before finishing it, but as I said, the characters saved it.
Too much Technical discussion.
Hard to pick a favorite. Three come to mind. Find out for yourself.
