Ender's Game was very good, but Speaker for the Dead is incredible. A great novel combining philosophy, theology, sociology, anthropology and science. I loved this book and will certainly read / listen to it again.

One note: I listened to the version, and it was not great. There were several narrators, and they switched at seemingly random times. One of the voices sounded like the guy had a serious sinus infection when he read. Another narrator was over-the-top dramatic in her voices. It took me a while to get used to their voices.

But the actual book is phenomenal.
