Speaker of the Dead is the best book Card ever wrote. I had hoped this would exceed it, but it didn't. It was good, but not as thought provoking as Speaker, and it seemed to go on just a bit too long. I was happy to finish it although I usually am sad when I close a book for the last time.

Ender in Exile is a book set in the Ender’s Game universe which takes place between the first and second book of the original Ender’s Game quartet. The story follows Ender directly after the events of Ender’s Game. The book gives more insight on Ender’s character and ties up loose ends left from some of the other books in the Ender’s Game universe (which I won’t discuss due to spoilers). The book ties I with the rest of the universe very nicely building on previous books while also setting the foundation for some future books. Although this book is slow for the series (as it is more of a psychological suspense story than full-blown action), it does have an interesting story of its own, with plenty of memorable moments, most notably Ender’s transformation into the Speaker for the Dead and the origin of “Ender the Xenocide” (although these events shouldn’t be a surprise if you read the other books). A great story if you can manage through the slower pacing. 4/5 Stars - @Fulton of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Not as enjoyable as Ender's Game, though it was very informative on many things.

SPOILER ALERT!!
This book, like most, cannot match the brilliance and glory of predecessors. However, the book does offer insights to aspects of Ender's character, and also fills in a few gaps that were left by earlier books. For example, in the series about Bean, we learn that Bean's final child with Anton's Key turned was not able to be found before Bean fled to the stars. This created a scene that was pretty interesting.

Having only read Ender's Game before this one I can only say that this book is a good read, a good sequel, somewhat boring compared to Ender's Game. A similar series I read a long time ago is Piers Anthony: Bio of a space tyrant. Similar themes running from that series to this one so maybe if you feel this series is a bit flat try the Piers Anthony books. Its about a boy from the slums that, with the aid of a sister, rises to power from an agrigultural food supply belt to being ruler of the known universe.. Maybe Orson Scott Card read this series too. (That was sarcasm incase you didn't notice.)

This is my third Ender's book after Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead... maybe it's Orson Scott Card fatigue but I enjoyed this book less than the first 2 I've read. It was still enjoyable and I will eventually continue reading books from this Universe.

This book was not as good as Ender's Game. But it is an interesting sequel. A good read. As one of the many sequels after Ender's Game, you don't have to read this one directly after EG before reading the other Ender books. The plot was rather flat, with not a whole lot of intensive action that EG has. But still a good book.

The majority of this book is an expansion on the last couple chapters of "Ender's Game." If you like the Ender series, this is another good one, though I'd recommend reading Ender's Shadow and its sequels before reading this.

A good literary comparison here would be to C.S. Lewis's Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Take that comparison lightly, but it's still accurate. It's a series of smaller plots opening and closing as the main characters embark on a long journey.

"What I understand now is this: There is no harder job than parenting. There is no [other] human relationship with such potential for great achievement and awful destructiveness, and despite all the experts who write about it, no one has the slightest idea whether any decision will be right or best or even not-horrible for any particular child. It is a job that simply cannot be done right."
