Find out about it it felt like Card gave me a piece of canned meat after expecting a nicely grilled steak 45 stars Main problem would be the dull characters expecting a nicely grilled steak 45 stars Main problem would be the dull characters terrible ending Overall though this novel was really great The ourney was good but not enough to garner a 5 star rating I really liked Ender s Game but I m not saying don t read this on the contrary I m also recommending this Not sure if I ll read Xenocide right away because the ending of this one doesn t make me want to know
What S Going To s going to next but I will read it probably next year 2015 When I first read this book I was in middle school and I hated it It was such a disappointment as a follow up to the brilliance of Ender s Game I re read it when in grad school and it was an entirely different experience The book has elements of mystery religionmysticism anthropology albeit fictional anthropology philosophy politics and intrigue But its got a very slow start and there isn t much in the way of action its all about two cultures trying to understand each other Its not a traditional sci fi read but for the right reader it can be a really deep and meaningful experience Speaker for the Dead Ender s Saga 2 Orson Scott CardA 1986 science fiction novel by American writer Orson Scott Card an indirect seuel to the novel Ender s Game The book takes place around the year 5270 some 3000 years after the events in Ender s Game Some years after the xenocide of the Formic species in Ender s Game Ender Wiggin writes a book called The Hive ueen describing the life of the Formics as described to him by the dormant Formic ueen whom he secretly carries As humanity uses light speed travel to establish new colonies Ender and Orson Scott Card has said that Speaker for the Dead is the book he always meant to write and that the only reason he wrote Ender s Game was as a preuel so he felt a little baffled when Ender s Game ended up becoming his most famous and most read work After reading Speaker for the Dead I understand where he s coming from The complexity of issues tackled in Speaker for the Dead are much deeper than those in Ender Likewise The Cultures And Worlds Explored Through Speaker Are Much the cultures and worlds explored through Speaker are much One thing I love about Orson Scott Card which I somehow always end up forgetting when I m not reading him is that despite the fact that he writes fairly hard science fiction his stories are still completely character driven Unlike many SF writers he spends as much time developing his characters as he spends developing his society and the result is a compelling book regardless of the plot Heck I even enjoyed Ender s Shadow which basically had the same plot as Ender s Game except told from a different character s perspectiveDespite my enjoyment of the book there were a few things that annoyed me Although Orson Scott Card s characters are well developed the female characters seemed to have less complexity in particular the principle female character spent about 34 of the book wallowing in her own self pity This may endear her to male readers with a knight in shining armor complex as indeed it endeared her to Ender but as a female reader I wanted her to Alchemy for Women just get over it already Orson Scott Card seems to play the female moral superiority card even as he grapples with some real ambivalence about female leadership the female leaders in this book were either veiled tyrants whom Ender felt compelled to put in their place or rendered ineffective as leaders the moment Ender burst on the scene Finally Ender himself is a main character in this book whom you re almost tempted to despiseust because the author is so clearly in love with him But truth be told that didn t keep me from being a little enad with him myself although the piggies an alien race introduced in this book held my heart and my attention most completely One of my ALL Time Favorites I loved Ender s Game but I think that this novel surpasses it on ust about every level Writing emotional resonance characterization and depth This novel is a much adult read than Ender s Game It impacted me greatly and I found that it stayed with me long after I finished reading it 60 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATIONWinner Hugo Award Best Novel Winner Nebula Award Best Novel Winner Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel Nominee Campbell Award Best SF Novel.

Calling this book the seuel to Ender s Game is like calling Mary Poppins the seuel to Star Wars It s boring overly observational Poppins the seuel to Star Wars It s boring overly observational totally unrelated in style and setting to Ender s Game So great to revisit one of my absolute favorite novels of all time Back when I first read this Andrew Wiggin immediately umped into my heart to become my ultimate role Ian McKellon Ellen DeGeneres Nathan Lane Jim Parsons and Samuel Delany sit in a trendy coffee house in Chelsea and discuss Orson Scott Card s 1985 novel Speaker for the DeadIan Let me begin our book club meeting with a very special thank you to our very gracious host thank you Andre as always your staff have been kind and hospitable and have once again made us all feel at homeall thank the host and serversIan Alright so
speaker for the dead card s seuel tofor the Dead Card s seuel to fine novel Ender s Game any opening remarksNathan Well what can I say I loved itall agreeEllen It reminded me of Ursula Le Guin s writing much so than Ender s Game or any other of his writing that I have experiencedSamuel Yes and Card used Le Guin s ansible the device that allows for instantaneous communication across light years of distanceJim On the set of Big Bang Theory we often talk about the technology as a part of our back story and we have freuently discussed the ansibleSamuel Speaking as a science fiction writer myself I have to say that this may have been his virtuoso performance again so than Ender s Game which has some irony because Card stated that this was the book he intended to write before Ender s Game and Ender s Game was written almost as a preuel and then it became far popularIan Certainly this was the spiritual of the two booksall agreeNathan I think that Card also borrowed from or paid tribute to many other writers in this book Heinlein obviously Le Guin Clarke and also maybe Joe HaldemanJim The lost in time relative time gaps where a traveller in a near light speed vehicle will age less than someone on Earth may be a ubiuitous them in his workSamuel Yes this was reminiscent of his The Worthing Saga stories where one character finds himself centuries even
"millennia older than his peersIan What do you think of his use of "older than his peersIan What do you think of his use of aliens as being described as piggies was this perhaps an allusion to William Golding s brilliant 1954 novel Lord of the FliesEllen I wondered about that too I mean maybe almost in reverse as if they are the alien uveniles to our older but still immature and incomplete adultsNathan Yes I think that was definitely a goal of his to make the piggies into a kind of retro mirror to ourselves although they are certainly alienSamuel The inclusion of the Hive ueen and the Hegemon is also an important inclusion very much like something Frank Herbert would write to offer a path towards redemptionIan So it s unanimous we all like his work and simply must invite him to our next book club meeting Christmas 2010 I realised that I had got stuck in a rut I was re reading old favourites again and again waiting for a few trusted authors to release new works Something had to be doneOn the spur of the moment I set myself a challenge to read every book to have won the Locus Sci Fi award That s 35 books 6 of which I d previously read leaving 29 titles by 14 authors who were new to meWhile working through this reading list I got married went on my honeymoon switched career and became a father As such these stories became imprinted on my memory as the soundtrack to the happiest period in my life so farI really liked this book I ve never read Ender s Game I ve never read any other Orson Scott Card But I will because I really liked this bookThe overall premise is superb mankind s dark history with the buggers their potential for redemption with the piggies the mysterious Descolada plague the precautions taken to protect the xenobiology making understanding the evolutionary leaps impossible it s fascinating stuffBut it s the individuals who populate this world Ender who is the very epitome of his race the killer seeking redemption the last Hive ueen Jane the insecure AI Ender s genius sister Valentine Novinho the brilliant but bitter xenobiologist who Ender is determined to make accept his love her dysfunctional family and finally there are the stars of the show the piggies themselves an alien race who rank up their with Ha.

Milton s Kiint as my personal favourites Lots of sci fi starts with a good idea or two but very few have a cast like thisIt s awkward anguished personal stuff wrapped up as a murder mystery inside a scientific enigma driven along relentlessly by a humble messiah My only complaint is the choice of names the buggers and the piggies Let s face it these are bloody ridiculous names for well crafted alien races One of the ways I udge a book is by how many moments remain behind afterwards resonating with my understanding of the world For Speaker there are dozens and *They Ve Lingered In Vibrant Sparkling FormThe One I Ll *ve lingered in vibrant sparkling formThe one I ll forget is the moment that gives Ender his purpose and the book it s title when he Speaks the Death of Marc o It s a scene that I knew was coming from the get go a scene I tried to guess and second guess and still found surprising still found emotional and couldn t have broken away from had my wife gone into labour while the house was on fireWhen the piggies ask view spoilera brothertree hide spoiler While Ender s Game is a solid piece of modern
Sci Fi The Seuelfi the seuel all too short Speaker is preachy and allegorical and the characters often devolve into simple mouthpieces for the author s opinions which are numerous long and not particularly originalWhile I do respect that every author has his own point of view and that one should be able to glean some understanding from their books such a heavy handed case detracts from the story and characters as a whole The suspension of disbelief should not be broken by the author s message rather the message should be communicated by carefully built characters and situations so th Card Claims That This Is His that this is his He said that he only wrote Ender s Game so that he could write this It s such a shame though that Ender s Game became such a hit and Speaker for the Dead became its shadow Before I start with the serious part of the review let me start with something that I can t seem to erase from my mind while reading this The new alien species are called piggies Piggies The thing running inside my head wasand it stayed like that till the end I m not proud of it but for me Card wrote of a new alien species in which they are pigs Not so new to meAnother thing running in my mind would be the word ramen It kept appearing from time to time Mr Card a ramen for me would be I believe that this is my first time using pictures for my review Might be my last time but who knows what the future might hold Like what 90% of the goodreads people say about this Speaker is of a philosophical novel rather than a hardcore SF war one That didn t bother me to be honest because the issues tackled in the novel were uite interesting There was not a dull moment in the novel so that s a good start The reason why I didn t like this though would be because of the bad ending After such an amazing world building and character development the ending was Alien just terrible for me It felt rushed and incomplete He could ve made the novel a bit longer considering how average the size is It s either the novel was inadeuate in size or I wasust wanting Only two characters from Ender s Game were still present in this novel Ender and Valentine I really liked both characters so I was thrilled to read of the two The novel was 90% Ender of course and probably 5% Valentine I m not complaining much because Ender s one of my favorites but the other characters were ust not interesting to me The main problem would be their names I hated their names They were made up and weird as shit I hate those things it hinders my ability to like a character If I hate the name right from the start odds are I ll hate the character itself Come to think of it though even if the characters had better names I don t think I d like them as much as some characters from Ender s though Most of the characters here were rather flat and boring They contributed a lot in the plot but I couldn t see myself remembering them in the futurePlot wise this novel was above satisfactory It didn t falter off at one point so consistency was present Chapter after chapter I was impatient to know what would happen next and what would be the explosive ending I was expecting I was really disappointed though Even the secret of Pipo was terribly bullshit After reading the whole novel to.
