Read full description of the books Ender's War (The Ender Quintet, #1-2):This is two books in one: Ender's Game, & the sequel, Speaker for the Dead. Having already read & reviewed Ender's Game, this review is for, Speaker for the Dead.
Murder mystery in space! That's my over simplified summary of this story. Or rather, a murder mystery set on distant planet, being colonized by humans, but also inhabited by native creatures & possibly other aliens... And since I love a good murder mystery, this was pretty enjoyable, even with some formulaic mystery elements. But this story also shows a nice progression of Ender's maturity, from the first book, & his ability for compassion & empathy allowing him great wisdom.
As much as I liked it, I have one beef. Card just couldn't help himself. It wasn't enough to create new & strange names for places & creatures of his imagination. He had to throw in a human language, Portuguese, just to make the names that much more confusing & unpronounceable. Yeah, yeah, I got the point, & how it fits in with your story, but it was still tiresome to my little brain.
