I read SFTD after i had read Ender's Game for school in my freshman year in high school. I absolutely loved EG and have read it six times at least. The story of Bean in the shadow series is just as amazing as EG is and reading SFTD(I have read twice so far), which follows Ender as an adult, furthers my love of Ender's story. SFTD is a thought provoking novel that is a slightly rougher and more thought requiring read than EG, but is also a great supplement. The reader can now see how Ender finds redemption and regains the love of those who see Ender as the xenocide and the most evil of all humans. I highly recommend this book to any reader that has enjoyed the depth of Ender's game and wishes to continue delving. SFTD is more philosophic than EG, which i find to be a very good quality. it deals with morality, human nature, coexistence issues and much more. I know that this review is not very well written but the book can seak for itself and does not really need a review, all you need to do is open to the first page and you will have an intense experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
