Earth Unaware

So I just go my hands on the newly-released [i]Earth Unaware[/i], and I cannot wait to start reading it. How many of you guys have read it already? Any thoughts on how this book measures up to the rest of the series?

Re: What's your LEAST favorite Ender/Speaker Book?

I'm going to have to go with Xenocide. In retrospect, I understand that every nuance included in that book was vital to the plot line further down the road in Children of the Mind. Yet at the same time, the first time I read Xenocide it felt a little dry. Lots of information; no action. Not saying I...

Homecoming is a really good series actually. It's about a family who is summoned back to Earth after Earth has been abandoned for centuries. It's very different than Ender's game- less action than the Shadow series, and more science and psychology than the Ender series. But it does no harm to Orson ...

I think that Peter, the one on Earth, altered himself because it was beneficial for his career. I think that the real Peter is a genius. He grew up; he's no longer the bad, big-brother Peter that Ender knew as a young child. The Peter that Ender creates is simply the Peter that Ender knew, a bright ...

once you finish the series completely, I would recommend another series by Orson Scott Card titled Homecoming.
of course, you can also read the extension books of the Ender's Game series-[i] A War of Gifts [/i]and [i]First Meetings[/i].

If by gifted child you mean child prodigy, then yes. Ender is a great example of a child over-achiever. But is he happy with that? Or is he even a child? No. Ender never wanted to be the gifted child. He hated when the other kids in Battleschool looked up to him as a teacher instead of a friend. He ...

this is a clever question. i think, as a young boy with emotions- Ender should be most upset about Bonzo and Stilston. Although they weren't nice, he did know them personally. And unlike those killed as a necesary sacrifice during the third invasion, Bonzo and Stilston didn't consent to their fate. ...
