really liked it
Read from June 13 to 15, 2011

A very moving book about the way people are viewed when they are different and how they respond to this and/or can use it to make a difference/ have an influence. Another good addition to the Ender series, and very moving at the end.

Julian Delphiki grew up being called Bean, because he was so very small as a child. But within that tiny body was a mental giant. He was the smallest and youngest student at the Battle School, but he became Ender Wiggin's right hand.

Since then he has grown to be a power on Earth. He serves the Hegemon in the terrible wars that have followed Ender's defeat of the alien empire attacking Earth. But within his genetically modified body is a ticking time bomb - Bean has never stopped growing; from the tiny, brilliant strategist, he ahs grown to be a giant in body as well as mind. Soon, he will not be able to survive in the gravity of his home world.

Soon, he will have to make a terrible choice.
