Earth Afire (2013)
language
English
4.16 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Not quite as engaging as the first in the First Formic War series, but very close. The first book had more character development and depth and the second book had more action. It has been fun to see the developments play out that cause the world to become the bleak place it is ...

review 1: Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the Shadow series, maybe even more than the final books of the original Ender series, but the ending of this book completely ruined this particular installment for me. It seemed to end just as anything real started to happen and the "conclusio...

review 1: I loved the Ender's Game series from a long time ago, still enjoy it despite the controversy in recent years over the author's political views, and look forward to my kids reading Ender's Game when they get older. This prequel series was not essential but was still fun for its r...

review 1: Thoroughly enjoyed this Star Trek-esque sci fi tale of a kids' battle school of the future. Clever interweaving of invented slang words, back story and believable characterisation. Listened to the audible version, which was excellent, much more of a dramatisation than a mere narr...

review 1: whether Prince or pretty, cold water to make king wise, greater fool wise who does not know he is wise or wise who does not think wise, philosopher first and Saint, spirits in heaven or hell, don’t fear opinions of fools, a better father than you know, certainty as feeling right ...
Ender's World: Fresh Perspectives on the SF Classic Ender's Game (2013)

English

review 1: This book is full of spoilers, so don't read it if you haven't already read Ender's Game. In fact, I would suggest re-reading Ender's Game just before reading Ender's World. (Read it in print, rather than audio. See my reasons below.) If you do, the characters, dialog, and plot w...

review 1: I have the strong feeling that I've read this before feom the plot, but the characters aren't at all familiar. Maybe it's just the whole space theme thing, and training children, and the Givers, all of which aren't particularly uncommon themes in science fiction. Anyway, I was a ...

review 1: I can't say this was a real pager turner for me. I found myself waiting till I didn't have much to do to read this book. I liked the previous two books more than this one and am a bit disappointed in this final book of the series. The book is 578 pages of double spaced text. Kind...

review 1: The Ender's Game is a si-fi mind twisting book.It's a book where your just tring to wrap your finger on just one topic.While the book does get confusing it gets better as the book goes along.If you are'nt ready for a rollercoster ride I would'nt purchase this book.Also for younge...

review 1: When I ordered this book, I was unaware that this is a comic book. But having read just about everything else in the Ender-verse, I wasn't going to send it back. And I wasn't disappointed in the least. This is really a very entertaining book and an excellent read. Now, I'll have ...

review 1: This book is simply incredible. I loved every minute reading it, for I could feel the tension and excitement unfolding throughout the entire book. I could not put it down; it kept me mesmerized. All of these characters that Card had so exquisitely written, you get emotional attac...

review 1: Maybe it's because I'm growing up. Maybe it's because of the manga wannabe art. Maybe it's because I read Ender's Game first. I like scifi, I like anime, I enjoyed Laddertop. But even with all that on the table I couldn't get the bad taste out of my mouth after reading it. It's b...

review 1: very different. Ender is picked on from a very small age. The world is under attack. they monitor the smart kids and if they pass they send them off to "camps" to train to someday fight the "bugger's". They need the kids to find a way to beat the buggers before they invade a...

review 1: completely different than what I expected but still great. more unprecedented deaths of significant characters, more political manipulations, and an interesting twist at the end.For those who think this is a right wing book, you are a democrat. if you this this is a book about ...

review 1: Wow.For my first foray into graphic novels, I'd say I lucked out. I always loved Ender's Game (the original book), but this was an excellent adaptation.The illustrations were superb, and the story told quite well for only scenes and dialogue. Especially considering so much of the...
