I was debating between 3 and 4 for a while, because I liked it, but it was a rather sad book, not to mention I liked the first half better than the second. The second felt hurried, and while I was hoping the book would show more of what happened after the point where the short story ended, I was rather disappointed by the happenings themselves. So, 3 it is.
Also, the cover creeps me out. I keep thinking it looks like his life's being sucked out, rather than him just singing. It's something about the way the face is painted. I guess it fits the book though.

Cary It's been ages since I read this, but I remember liking it pretty well. Definitely better than his later stuff (basically beginning with the Homecoming series I thought his writing went downhill - though I have not checked out any of the new Ender universe stuff, so maybe it's better).

LKM Cool. I read the short story and I liked it quite a bit (same I did with Ender- read the short story first), so I'm hoping I'll also like this too. X)
