Yeah, I think I might go for that next. I haven't read any of the non-sequels yet, so I'm curious.

I loved Speaker for the Dead. I hate Ender's Shadow.

i can lend you speaker for the dead, xenocide, and children of the mind (although i'd seriously recommend skipping the last one), if you don't have them already.

Huh. I loved Ender's Game; it spoke directly to me in seventh grade. I still think it's quite good, but these days I think Speaker is a much better book. More ambitious, I think, and equally successful.

I thought Ender's Shadow was good, but not great. Couldn't stand Shadow of the Hegemon; never read the third. My ex read it and actually refused to have it in the house anymore when she was done.

Xenocide and Children of the Mind ramble a lot. I was unimpressed with both of them. It's been several years, though; I might like them more today.

I own and have read all of the sequels. Yeah, Speaker for the Dead is an awesome book.
