Ender's Shadow could be viewed as a fill in for Ender's Game. It follows practically the same structure and time frame, following the main character

I find it fascinating for 2 main reasons:
1. I get to see the dynamics of Battle School and the wider global impact of poverty, the power plays between various characters, from the analytical and sharply observant Bean;
2. seeing Ender's vulnerability shine through in Bean's perspective is something new. It was not imparted in Ender's Game and adds another dimension to the enigma that is Ender.

I think the Ender Series has been so successful because of Scott's powerful, tense and pithy writing style, and his engagement with concepts such as young innocent children being manipulated and used by their more knowing adult counterparts.

The book "Ender's Shadow" is one of the only books I have not been able to put down. After reading "Ender's Game" I fell in love with the way Card writes, and the story he is telling. Bean is an extremely easy character to like and to connect with. This book, after reading Game, is definately a must read.

I love to read books, although, no book I ever had read could describe the way I feel. Once I picked up the book Ender's Shadow, I knew that this book would be my all-time favorite, as it is, and will be. From the very first page, I fell in love with Bean, and I found myself regretting when I had to put the book down because I was finished. I would very much like to know of sequels that go on to follow Bean's life, and what is to become of him. If there is any sequels PLEASE e-mail me at the Internet address shown above, and inform me of a sequel, or two if there are. Thanks!
