    It always ticks me off when the sequal to Ender's Game is usually shown as Ender's Shadow. That spin off of Card's was alright, but Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind are my all time favorite books. THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!! The depth of the character developments, and explinations of other worlds and alien species - I cannot even begin to put into words what an expeirience it is to read these books.

The depth of the character developments, and explinations of other worlds and alien species - I cannot even begin to put into words what an expeirience it is to read these books. Card has you thinking about so many aspects of life and where our spirits come from and where we go after death. He dives into issues of being human and what that means in the face of extermination, or even the fear of it, how far a race will go to protect themselves to keep on living. Love these more than I could express! I hope Card keeps filling in the 3,000 year gap between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. I just can't get enough!!!!

    Go to the end of imagination, and then go beyond. It's mystical. It's philosophical. It's asking questions about definitions and differences between humanity and being human. It's thoughtful, organised and well-written. It I was forced to chose one book as my absolute favorite - you know this ridiculous question - Ender's Saga would be probably the choice.

    book reads didnt have each book seperatly so this was my only option. I read Enders Game in 9th grade for the group books unit and I enjoyed the first book. it wasnt until a few months ago that i realized that there were more books to the series. I thought it was a very good book because in itself it was a complete story which I think makes a good series. i dont like books that just have clif hangers and stretch their story till all is left is putty. There are four books in the series and the fi book reads didnt have each book seperatly so this was my only option.

I thought it was a very good book because in itself it was a complete story which I think makes a good series. i dont like books that just have clif hangers and stretch their story till all is left is putty. There are four books in the series and the first one was called Speaker for the Dead. SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD: it was a jump because the setting was different since the book takes place in the future, and the main character, Andrew Wiggins, is not a kid anymore, he is much older. this book also brings up the character of Andrews sister which we only saw for a little bit in the beginning and it was cool to see how she was more of an enemy than anything else. the relationship they had when they were children were still the same because of their different ideas. XENOCIDE: in this book we see that the story line ties back to the first book where he trained the whole time, and his whole life in the battle rooms to eliminate the alien buggers that are in the humans way in different planets. we have a back and forth story line between two planets of lusitania and path. we see that all of the training in the first book paid off to eliminate aliens in these two planets. we are also given the point of view of the aliens and shown why the book is called xenocide. I searched what xeno means and that means alien, and the word cide means killing, so we see the killing of aliens that arent bad in this world of enders game. CHILDREN OF THE MIND: We see more of other characters in this book and the absense of Andrew is like taking a huge peice of the cake. He is there but he isnt the focal of the book. This book focuses around Jane which is a computer thaty wants to become human. this is the major conflict but there is still some fighting between the buggers and humans. this book is more of a resolution because ender is getting old so his soul was transfered into a character named peter. I enjoyed the book but i didnt feel like it was as good as the others. all of the books work well with each other. They give a sort of star wars saga vibe because each one gives to the other which i really liked. i recommend all of the books. I think the flow was really good which made me like the books a lot more.

    I absolutely ENJOYED Enders game and speaker of the dead was good too but I really wish that orson Scott card hasn't rushed the series too much like all of a sudden you see ender in the first book all young and then in the next one he is 35!!! Like seriously but speaker of the dead was good too but xenocide and children of the mind disappointed me deeply! I have NEVER been more disappointed about a series as much as this! I'm still reading children of the mind but I wish the series was less dial I absolutely ENJOYED Enders game and speaker of the dead was good too but I really wish that orson Scott card hasn't rushed the series too much like all of a sudden you see ender in the first book all young and then in the next one he is 35!!! Like seriously but speaker of the dead was good too but xenocide and children of the mind disappointed me deeply! I have NEVER been more disappointed about a series as much as this! I'm still reading children of the mind but I wish the series was less dialogue and more interesting and intriguing and maybe more action. I wish ender was more of a major character in the last few books but I liked how Peter came back but I don't like how alot of the characters misjudged ender and I seriously didn't like how ender got married especially to novinha! It ruined alot of the plot because ender was more worried about pleasing his wife than saving humanity. Novinha also was making a big deal about Jane I hate how ender cut her off and how he also cut off valentine and everyone else. I just wish that after Enders game orson Scott card told more about what ender did instead of skipping three thousand years into the future but I'm looking forward to reading ender in exile to see what happened and I really want to read shadow series and first formic wars! I do like orson Scott card don't get me wrong he is an amazing writer but he ruined his best series by focusing too much on virtue , religion , love, future, and everyone else instead of ender so if anyone is reading this please read Enders game and maybe speaker of the dead but nothing after but maybe try the other books like ender in exile cuz that wouldn't hurt and war of gifts and shadow series and mazer in prison! I'm still a fan of Enders game no matter what and am looking forward to the movie!

    Please see my review for Ender's Game (Ender Book 1), Ender's Shadow (Ender Book 5), and Shadow of the Hegemon (Ender Book 6). I think that those books--and the rest of the Shadow series, and then First Meetings in the Enderverse--ought to be read before Speaker for the Dead (Ender Book 2), Xenocide (Ender Book 3), and Children of the Mind (Ender Book 4), because even though the three books in this boxed set were written before the Shadow books, the Shadow-series action takes places long before Please see my review for Ender's Game (Ender Book 1), Ender's Shadow (Ender Book 5), and Shadow of the Hegemon (Ender Book 6). I think that those books--and the rest of the Shadow series, and then First Meetings in the Enderverse--ought to be read before Speaker for the Dead (Ender Book 2), Xenocide (Ender Book 3), and Children of the Mind (Ender Book 4), because even though the three books in this boxed set were written before the Shadow books, the Shadow-series action takes places long before the events in Ender's later life, the events chronicled in Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. I have to say that I think that I prefer the Shadow series right now, but that may be only because they're fresher in my mind. The Ender's-series sequels in this boxed set still rate five stars, though, even though in my opinion Xenocide and Children of God aren't *quite* up to the very high standards of Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. I've recently read Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow and Children of God, which deal with the same kinds of societal and personal tragedies consequent upon well-meaning assumptions about new cultures. Both authors tackle similar subjects in different but satisfying ways, and neither shrinks from depicting the horrors of the universe or the personal agony of difficult moral choices and the consequences of those choices. Both also deal with religion in novel ways--in Xenocide, for example, the relationship of obsessive-compulsive disorder to religious experience is an ancillary theme. All three of these books are well worth the read. Very highly recommended!

At the start I was a little troubled at the introduction first of a whole new set of characters , and ultimately, the book is primarily about them, For the first 3rd or so of the book Ender is simply a catalyst in the system, but its interesting to see how he becomes the primary character (well one of them) by 3'rd of the way through. It was also nice how the previous books event weren't referenced to constantly - especially considering how caustic to the main character they were. [ I was going to put a synopsis here, but theres just too many things going on to make a short and sweet version of it thats not spoilerized - even the back cover doesn't do that.] In short, I enjoyed it, and again, like the first book, finished it in maybe 3 sittings (all of which, again, kept me awake when I should have been sleeping). If you liked the first book, I think you will like this one, but its not something I think you might expect. Stick with it through the first 2 chapters, if you make it, I'm sure you will like the remainder. On to Book Three: Xenocide! (Perhaps I will just tack the reviews of the other volumes to this..)

Ender, who should be have died of old age, is still alive, though he is 35 years old. Ender was able to accomplish this by some sort of time traveling device that allowed him to go to the future. in this future he goes by the name Andrew, (his birth name) or his alias "the speaker of the dead". This novel brings back all the action and strategic tactics from the first, except now there is a mysterious twist to things. i recommend this book to all those Ender's Game reader's or everyone who likes strategic action.

    as much as i loved ender's game when it was required reading in our 9th grade english class, i became obsessed with orson scott card's other works and read each of the sequels several times over the following few years. my favorite would have to be children of the mind/xenocide, mostly because i was enthralled by jane, and also those piglet characters who spoke portuguese. part of the Publisher's Weekly review from amazon said: "The plot is sometimes compelling, but the novel's many flaws make t as much as i loved ender's game when it was required reading in our 9th grade english class, i became obsessed with orson scott card's other works and read each of the sequels several times over the following few years. my favorite would have to be children of the mind/xenocide, mostly because i was enthralled by jane, and also those piglet characters who spoke portuguese. part of the Publisher's Weekly review from amazon said: "The plot is sometimes compelling, but the novel's many flaws make the book more often dull and irritating. Card's style is openly didactic, and when his characters do veer away from lengthy philosophical and scientific ruminations, they venture into contrived personality conflicts and endless self-deprecation. Some, notably Ender, Valentine and the wonderchild Wang-mu, are simply too good to be true--too smart, too reasonable, too kind and generous. The reader quickly tires of such impossible perfection." in response, while i may feel the same if i were to re-read these books today, as a precocious young teen who enjoyed "lengthy philosophical and scientific ruminations," i for one never tired of their impossible perfection. :)

    I read these as a young girl, right after Ender's Game. While I enjoyed them, they were much more "hard science fiction" and I didn't really love them like I did Ender's Game. I have reread them a few times since then, but I think I am still somewhat influenced by my initial bias and they are just drier on the whole. I have heard from many people who read them as adults, that they really enjoyed them, so that's something to note.

It's interesting since this jumps many years, after Ender's Game, we start to toy with the Science Ficiton concepts of what a government spanning a galaxy looks like. The politics of control were really interesting, and the checks and balances a government might try to put on different peoples and systems were a fascinating read. Many of the character's and their relationships felt true and human and were heartbreaking because of it. I thought that was a really good sign, that the author could make characters whose actions you hated still seem relatable and understandable. While I unreservedly recommend Ender's Game to anyone, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind might not be for everyone.

    Finished the Speaker of the Dead. A must read if you are or have read Ender's Game. This book dives into the life after Ender had destroyed a whole race and his obligation to fix the wrong which he did. If you watched the movie, please read Ender's Game prior to this, since there is a lot of character development which of course the movie did not have time to achieve leaving many fans of the book lacking.

    For the most part, I really liked these. Card uses these books to explore relationships and interactions with other (in this case, alien) races.

    I listened to the Audio CD's of these books, but since I can't find the CD's grouped together and I don't want to write the same review over and over, I will write it here. I read these all quite a few years ago after I had read Ender's game. I remember that I had thought they were ok but not great. As I have been listening to books as I drive to and from work each day I thought I would try these out. Listening to them was great - they have been very well done.

    Whever you do, take these books in measured doses and don't read them all at once. Enders game is good, but they get very long and drawn out after that. Children of the mind was fascinating, to see a society built around reverence for OCD. I wasn't all that enthralled with Jane's story, though it was the second-most interesting part of the storyline for me. The others were, at best, filler for me. I was pretty dissapointed.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Novinha is a horribly irritating, irrational, unlikeable character, and I dislike adult Ender as well. She is extremely catty and he's kind of a whiner. Valentine is a whiner too. Ooh, and I really, truly, hate Han Qing-jao. I hate Novinha the most, more than any other fictional person. I might be biased because I'm in love with Peter, and I'm very partial to Si Wang-mu. I do love the Pequeninos. It's probably really racist/horrible to say I want one.

    It took me awhile to get past the fact that this is a very different book than the first one. I kept hanging in there, trying to shift gears, trusting the many people who promised it was going to be worth it. And it was. Once I settled in to the story I was hooked. Beautifully written. This book can stand on its own. But I want to know what happens next. I'll be reading the next one. It took me awhile to get past the fact that this is a very different book than the first one.

    It's been a while since I read this trilogy. The story is compelling, though I remember it being crazy philosophical at times. The books kept me guessing and things never turned out the way I expected (in a good way). I think they are too deep for me to pick and read through completely again, but I am glad I read it through once. It's been a while since I read this trilogy.

    I really like the beginning of the Ender's Game Series. I'm not much of a young adult reader but these books are of interest to adults too. He has a very interesting way of exploring religion and science in a way that really makes you think. His characters are kind of goofy (like the "buggers") but it gives it a child like tone that I think allows you to be more receptive his thought process.

    I think the reason why I really enjoyed reading these books is because they were so different from the books that I usually choose to read. I listened to the audio with my husband on a road trip. I wonder if I would have loved it as much if I read it myself. He is a great author though, so probably.

    This branch of the Ender series is not as fun a read as Ender's game or the shadow series. Although the story goes a little slower, the ideas that are presented take more thought. The use of philotes is an interesting idea used in an interesting way. These aren't a fast or easy read, but I think they are still worthwhile.

    sheesh, this took awhile. Can't tell if I wasn't terribly interested or if it was because I have been busy with other things lately. In a way, I liked it better than Ender's Game because of the lack of swearing and violence. But, I found most of the parts interesting. A few parts were boring, but not many. sheesh, this took awhile. Can't tell if I wasn't terribly interested or if it was because I have been busy with other things lately.

    The first of the series is really the best. Probably just stick to Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow. The rest of the series is an intriging enough to get through the thick books but it get weird really quick. The first of the series is really the best.

    The three sequels to Ender's Game are nothing like Ender's Game. They were okay I guess, but were more philosophical than they were about war. I was kind of bored, but I finished them because once I start a series I have to finish it. The three sequels to Ender's Game are nothing like Ender's Game.

    One of the few Sci-Fi that I go for...beautiful way of addressing race/genocide and integrating futuristic technology that is compatible with current science. However, the reading was slow and he often got bogged down in the details and complicated explanations. Interesting read anyway.

    I got Ender's Game from a friend for my birthday. It was such a great book that it got me hooked into the series. I am now reading the last book: Children of the Mind. It is going well but I find it is not as enthralling as Engers Game. I got Ender's Game from a friend for my birthday. It was such a great book that it got me hooked into the series.

    I really dug this whole Speaker series and wrapping up with Children of the Mind definitely did not disappoint. I don't know why I can only find it in this three pack thing, but the whole thing is good.

    These were not quite as good as Enders Game, only because it was one of the best books ever. I always hate when a character has to change or grow up because you get so used to them the way they are, but they were all great books.

    Great series of sci-fi books. Two parallel story lines. 4 books in each. My personal preference is down the Ender's Shadow line. The books down the Ender's Saga line get a little bit weird after Book 1, but still worth it. Great series of sci-fi books. Two parallel story lines. 4 books in each.
