    This book really surprised me due to its overall lack of action. It was the sequel to Ender's Game and I expected more of the same. However, I think this book is even better than the first. The ideas in this book and the thought-provoking plotline are enough to make me say this is the best science fiction book I have personally read. Give it a shot!

    A real let-down after Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow.
