My Amazon review (yeah, I was pretty pissed):

Subj: Deeply alienated by Card's recent work.

A disappointing, socially unimaginative flattening of a character and a world I once loved very much. This novel was rife with ideologically and spiritually conservative addresses to the reader that seemed to diverge from the far ranging and broad discourses of the other books, at least the way I read them so many years ago. I felt alienated by the Wiggins of this novel, theirs and the narrator's presumptio

I think that Orson Scott Card and George Lucas must have had a meeting at some point and came up with all the ways you can destroy a franchise by adding on useless and clumsy story to your original work.

Card wrote one of my favorite sci-fi books, Ender's Game, and then ruined every good feeling I had towards him by a parade a horrible sequels and tie-ins that either have nothing to do with the original story or repeatedly revise and rehash the original material so much that it's in danger of bec

Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s saga holds the distinction of being one of the only series to win back-to-back Hugo Awards. Both “Ender’s Game” and “Speaker for the Dead” deservedly picked up Hugos when published and now, 30 years and several sequels later, Card revisits the time period between “Game” and “Speaker” in his latest novel in the Ender storyline.

After creating the parallel novel, “Ender’s Shadow” and the subsequent series about Bean, Petra and Peter’s rise to power in the world, Card shif

Whenever anyone asked me what science fiction books were worth reading, I'd always recommend Ender's Game. It is quite simply a magnificent book, well-plotted, full of action, angst, political maneuvering and brilliant characterizations. I felt that way about the second book, Speaker for the Dead as well. So along comes this book 23 years later promising to be a direct sequel to Ender's Game, and tell the story of the "lost years" between the two books. Woo hooo! But wait, all of the plot of End ...more

Ender in Exile is what I wanted as a sequel to Ender's Game when I read Speaker for the Dead many years ago. Instead, Speaker for the Dead seemed to have a completely different Ender and the storyline through the following books (Xenocide and Children of the Mind) was written for people who swim in the deep end of the Sci-Fi genre.

I swim in the shallow end, with the occasional foray into the deep end. Ender's Game is a book I would recommend to anyone, even those who have not even gotten into t

I'll admit that I had high expectations for this book, since I loved the other Ender's Game series books I've read: Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. While I did enjoy the book for the additional history and details it provides, I can't think of anything remarkable it contributed to the Ender storyline.

Although it's called a direct sequel to Ender's Game, most of this book actually takes place between chapters 14 (Ender's victory) and 15 (Ender on a colo

This a prime example of how everything that Orson Scott Card has written since Shadow of the Giant is terrible and going down the tubes. He does not write the way he use to with emotions of characters that you really cared about. I felt no connection to any of the characters, even Ender seemed flat and lifeless in this book. He is know I feel writing to the masses to make a couple of dollars. He is now for me one of the most dissappointed author I have ever read. Shame on him. I feel like I shou ...more

What sets Ender in Exile apart from the the rest of the series is this: it is less than the sum of its parts.

A handful of its chapters had already appeared in short story form on Card's online sci-fi zine, Intergalactic Medicine Show. These stories were interesting and self-contained in their own right. But within the context of a novel, they strike me as being Card's Tom Bombadil: incidentally enriching to the established universe, but irrelevant to the narrative at hand.

Card, Orson Scott. 2008. Ender in Exile.

Ender in Exile is the "new direct sequel" to Ender's Game. And in a way, that's true enough. The novel begins with Ender on Eros. His brother, Peter, and sister, Valentine, are on Earth. One lobbying for his return, the other arguing that he should not be allowed to come home. At all. Ever. If Ender was sent home, so the argument goes, he'd be a pawn for governments and militaries to fight over. He'd be targeted by power-hungry individuals for the rest of

I first read Orson Scott Card’s most recognized novel, Ender’s Game, in my freshman year of high school, and immediately fell in love with it. It’s one novel that withstood the test of time when I read it again as an adult, as it was after all meant for an adult audience, despite the young characters. I eagerly read the rest of the series, but only Ender’s Shadow came close to recapturing characters I loved so much. I picked this up from my library with the hopes that a younger version of Ender ...more

I was skeptical going into this - In fact, I only read it today because it has to go back to the library soon and I didn't want to return it unread. I kept thinking that it couldn't possibly be interesting since we already know what happens. Could it really be worth reading about events that were already discussed in other Ender books? Of course, I had the same type of reservations about Ender's Shadow and ended up being wowed by that one.

Ender in Exile isn't the same sort of homerun that Ender'

I have no idea what this book is. Orson Scott Card needs a direction/categorize for this book like he did with the other Ender books. The basic fact is that he took out all the moral/emotional fact from the original books was what made this book more like any other novel out there. He just needs to clear his head before writing anything now a days. He has lost his magical touch since writing Shadow of the Giant, which to me is his last great book.

Of all the books in the enderverse, my favorites are Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead.
This "midquel" fits right in between those two and did not dissappoint.
For various reasons I find myself drawn, as I am sure many are, to Ender's character; this transition novel between the young, brilliant, "win-at-all-costs" Ender and his adult self that I came to love in the Speaker series fills in some of the gaps in his character and maturation development.

Becuase of the need to reframe the story,

I'm honestly not sure this book needed to exist. While it does tie up all the dangling plotlines from the Shadow series, the book as a whole doesn't really have any driving conflict. It's more just "here's what happened to Ender in the immediate aftermath of the Bugger War." There are two seeming conflicts in the book, but they both seem manufactured, just to give Ender something to do.

Thrilled as I am to have another Ender book, I think it would have been better if the Bean stories had just bee

Part of me is nervous every time Card goes goes back to the Ender well, but again I was not disappointed. This book not being a Bean based book, although I have enjoyed those as well,it was nice to be back with the boy the created the universe. This book takes place between chapter 14-15 of Ender's Game and does a very nice job setting up the following trilogy more than the book alone did twenty years ago. I will say that this book was not truly necessary, it did flush out a little more of Ender ...more

After having been asked to contribute an Essay on the Ender Universe to an upcoming collection of Essays, I realized that Ender in Exile was the only Ender book I hadn’t read, so I picked it up right away. Orson Scott Card can’t write a bad book. At least I haven’t come across one. Ender in Exile follows Ender Wiggins’ “missing years,” and ties up some loose ends that I’m sure have plagued Card for years. For instance, he must be asked constantly by fans “why did the formic queens all gather on ...more

I am really angry that OSC got me so hard, so early, with Ender's Game, such that I want to read about the Wiggin siblings and their world even well past the point where it has become apparent that Card no longer writes books I will enjoy. I think this one, with various meandering digressions (at least one of which I found offensively misguided), lack of emotional payoff at any point in the story, and characters whose behavior seems inconsistent with my memories of them in earlier books, may hav ...more

Orson Scott Card keeps revisiting his Ender universe and churning out more stories about the Battle School kids. This novel returns to Ender, catching him just after the extermination of the Buggers. It’s told through multiple points of view – Ender Wiggin’s, Valentine’s, the Wiggin parents, and other characters – and follows Ender’s journey to Shakespeare colony and his governorship and subsequent travel to Ganges.

I was really impressed by Ender’s Game when I first read it, and subsequent re-re

Very good, I highly enjoyed it. I am glad that the Ender series continues to expand and I hope there is room/scope for at least one more book.

My reflections on reading it:

I felt sorry for Valentine in this book. Her personality was very blah. I hope--if this series continues to grow--that the female characters, such as Val and maybe Jane, will be at least as interesting as the male characters.

OSC has done it before in past books with Petra and, to some extent, Virlomi. It'd be nice to see Val ha

After I finished this novel, I decided I couldn't read Orson Scott Card anymore.

In the few books of his I have read, there was the focus on monogamy as the best possible social configuration, there was the gross characterization of women as important mainly as breeders, and the horrible line in Ender's Game about women not making it into battle school (whose entrance conditions are more about intelligence than physical strength) because of centuries of evolution working against them.

I wish I could give this 2.5 stars... it was between "it's okay" and "i liked it" for me. Here's why:

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Sometimes Orson Scott Card just kills me with his wordiness! And why can't there be a consistent voice? From "she" to "I" willy-nilly!

I am not really a sci-fi fan at all, but I wanted to know what was up with Ender. There, I said it. I am interested in Ender, not romantically, he is, after all, just a child who talks way too much. And he thinks he's pretty great. But I'm over

I enjoyed this book, it kept me reading, even though I know the basic shape of Ender's life. The parallels drawn between the Ender saga and Shakespeare were a little heavy handed, but... overall an entertaining read. I am a bit disturbed at the way Card continues to write female characters - even remarkably intelligent, competent, and strong women - who are only relevant and fulfilled when they find a way to support a man (a brother, a husband, etc.). That might be OK if there were some indicati ...more

Continuing my chronological reread of the Ender books, I've reached this "direct" sequel to the original ENDER'S GAME. It was an enjoyable read, but as a book, it doesn't have much of an identity in and of itself. Much of it is a detailed expansion and revision of the last chapter of ENDER'S GAME. Other parts serve as an epilogue to SHADOW OF THE GIANT, picking up on a dangling plot thread remaining from Bean's series. Still more of it works to justify some of the major cultural changes in the ' ...more

Card can write fantastically in his sleep, although I kind of feel like he snored right through this one a little too much. It fills the same role in the Enderverse as Back to the Future II: a good story in its own right, but kind of just something to fill in the holes between his really great works. It feels like about 3 or 4 short stories that were smooshed together like play-doh.

Card makes Ender too much of a Mary Sue character here. He's always right, always has a plan, and is smarter than e

A filler book in every sense. In the series. In my life. Right now I start reading whatever is closest to my hand when I put down the last book (panic) and then keep reading it (momentum). Yep, that's where I'm at on a lot of levels. As I wade through the plodding prose about ham-handed one-dimensional characters all I do is just wish I were Ender and not a real live human being, and certainly not me. I will finish it on the way to my BABYSITTING job tomorrow. I'm 28! This was not the plan! The ...more

This book serves a weird role in the Ender series. It's both a direct sequel to Ender's Game and the conclusion to the Shadow series, tying up some threads left by Bean, Petra, Peter, and Virlomi. It contradicts the last chapter of Ender's Game, which Card acknowledges in the afterword and future editions of the book will have a revised final chapter. But it also expands on that final chapter, to give more backstory to Speaker for the Dead and more fully explain Ender's time as the governor of ...more

I just wrote a long and semi scathing review and then hit the wrong button. I complained that although I found the book interesting and engaging, I was also angered by his treatment of women. Valentine, though sweet, is shown to be both stupid (relatively) and untrustworthy (going through Ender's correspondence). The mothers in the book are either selfish and wicked, sniveling and weak, or entirely absent. This book made me want to reread Speaker for the Dead and the rest from that line, but I d ...more
