#SpeakerfortheDead (Ender’s Saga, #2): I used to be an idiot.

Speaker for the Dead
Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

In 2011 I bought this book and and started reading it.

I hadn’t even finished the first chapter before deciding it wasn’t worth my time.

I returned it and got my money back.

Apparently, I used to be an idiot.

After re-reading Ender’s Game and discovering layers of meaning that I’d missed the first two times I read it, I thought I’d better give the rest of the Ender’s saga another look.

I’m so glad I did.

Ender’s story continues in this touching book about the definition of family, the healing of broken lives, the power of the truth, and the capacity we have to love despite differences.

Of course, that’s woven into a cool science fiction mystery about aliens and humans colonizing space.

Don’t be an idiot.

Read Ender’s Game. Then read Speaker for the Dead.

Happy Reading!
