The Ships of Earth was my first OSC book. My parents bought it for me at a thrift shop. And it was also the first book I read cover-to-cover.

My first and favourite book is Songmaster. I am abusing my knowledge of my school's library so I can renew the book over and over until the end of the school year or until I finally get a copy.

I am sorely disappointed there is no topic about Songmaster. Yet.

I only remembered some of the basics, and being out of new Card books at the moment, i just reread it after many years.

I must say i was somewhat disappointed. Didn't even like it quite as well as Ender in Exile, which didn't completely thrill me. :( I suppose since the latter took place back in the original time period, i hoped it would rival the original 3.

I loved Ender's Game....have read it three times over the years.

However, the later fleshed out version of a Planet Called Treason is also truly incredible. I read it twice and am thinking about reading it again.

I would love it if Card would write a sequel to this book!

I'm with the majority here. Ender's Game was the best, but Ender's Shadow is a CLOSE second. I just like the stories based around the original scenes.
Huge Ender's Game fan and a lover of reading. First book due out soon!

My personal favorite is The Pathfinder and its sequel. I just love the characters, even though the books can be kinda "slow" sometimes, to me, the character development makes up for it, in my opinion.

So am I a terrible person if I've never read Alvin Maker? haha or rather does that need to happen soon?
