Whats next?

Postby Froth » Mon Jul 13, 2009 11:04 am

Ive finished EiE. I got it Saturday night at about 9 and finished Sunday at about 5. And that's with a full nights rest of 8 hours and many lunch breaks, a nap, and church. But now I ask all of you OSC fans, what should be my next read by the great author we all love? I havnt read any of the short stories of Ederverse, nor anything outside of the Enderverse. Should I read those? Or should I move onto another one of his series? Or maybe just one of his single novels?...

It's really not as though we can do too much personalizing in recommendations, though I suppose there can be some.

Screw those recommendations; listen to me! Worthing Saga, Maps in a Mirror (collection of short stories), Songmaster. I think I've also heard nothing but universal praise for Pastwatch, though I still have yet to read it myself.

I started to read Pastwatch to glowing recommendations from a friend, but could never get into it. It's a very interesting premise, though, so I normally recommend it.

My bad. >_> Should have read around a bit and looked for those other topics.

Pastwatch is an excellent book and a brilliantly developed idea. It took me a while to get into it but once I did, I was fascinated. The parts that deal exclusively with Columbus can be tedious as Card attempts to weave his story into actual history. When I read this book over, I tend to skip past the Columbus parts as they are less interesting to me. Indeed, the best work of the book shines through in the parts where the two histories meet and this is where the main conflict comes out and is resolved. In my opinion, it is well worth the read if you can get through a bit of boring historical fiction.That said, Worthing Saga is also an amazing read. I very much enjoy the way the stories are told and how they all come together to form a complete narrative. The universe described and the characters that inhabit it are complex and intriguing. One can also taste a hint of Mormon ideology in many of the themes, though, in my opinion, this is minimal and does not detract from the story. Card took the idea of space travel and planetary colonization to a new level and created a series of interweaving plot lines to tell a powerful and complex story that will thrill and delight readers.

I am partial to Treason, Lost Boys, Treasure Box and Empire as well as the aforementioned.

I <3'd Pastwatch. I'm actually a big fan of (well done) historical narrative though, so maybe it makes sense.
