Speaker for the Dead

11. February, 2013

How would you feel if you had wiped out an entire civilization? Luckily, this is an academic question for most of us. For Ender, the¬†Xenocide, it’s a very real problem and Orson Scott Card again does a wonderful job of letting us share a few years with Andrew Wiggins, his doubts and decisions, his dedication. moral¬†dilemmas and brilliant mind.

Speaker for the Dead” is the sequel to “Ender’s Game” and as captivating as the first book. As usual, every character is driven by a deep motivation and it’s great fun to try to fit the pieces of the many puzzles before Card reveals the solution.

I found scenes like the signing of the Covenant between humans and piggies incredibly moving.

Recommendation: Must buy.
