Comments: I didn't know that I would love this novel as much as I did. After reading ENDER'S GAME I wasn't interested in the descriptions for the other books about Ender except ENDER'S SHADOW so I stopped there. However, a good friend talked me into reading this one years later and I loved it. It was clean, it was fascinating, and I always love the deep psychological inferences Card fills his books with. You feel like you get smarter just reading his novels.
