I didn’t find this as enjoyable as Enders Game. While it deals with a lot of issues that I usually enjoy in a story (religion, technology, sociology), I felt like the story took a back seat to the writers agenda. It is still a well written book as far as I’m concerned, however, and if I had not read Enders Game first, I probably would have rated it higher. It’s amazing how the controversies that Orson Scott Card raises in this series are still relevant today. My husband listened to the book as well, and it sparked some interesting debates. I could see this being a good choice for a book club (that is, if the member s were open to reading sci-fi). Discussing it with another reader allowed me to appreciate better the depth of the story and its characters.
