I think of all the ender books, this is the one I liked the least. It was still good... but... I don't know. I just found it a bit tedious.

Still, I think it's worth reading.

After reading Ender's Game (a classic sci-fi novel), Speaker of the Dead was really a disappointment.

The story really had potential but somehow it got lost in the process of the storytelling. That is not to say that Card is a bad writer. This book just didn't hold my interest or my imagination.

Rarely does a sequel to a path breaking book reach the same heights. Pleasantly enough, this book is an excellent sequel to Ender's Game. It is only nominally related to the original and explores completely different ideas and characters, linked only by Ender Wiggin himself. Science fiction at it's best.
