Waaay different than the first book, but very, very good in its own way. Ender's Game is a tightly written, perfectly turned out story from top to finish, whereas Speaker for the Dead is more philosophical and makes you think.

Quotes Gwen Liked

Orson Scott Card
“This is how humans are: We question all our beliefs, except for the ones that we really believe in, and those we never think to question.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

Orson Scott Card
“No human being, when you understand his desires, is worthless. No one's life is nothing. Even the most evil of men and women, if you understand their hearts, had some generous act that redeems them, at least a little, from their sins.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

Angela That's what I thought! It seemed very different from Ender's Game, but good in the differences.
