    One thought on “The Shadow Saga Omnibus”

    1. Great series, explored life and death, politics and war in the realm of childhood and young adulthood.

    2. I finished and liked Ender s Game It had a good semi twist ending I m not sure that Card really managed to capture the mindset of a young child, if you suspend your disbelieve and remember that Ender is supposed to be extraordinary, it works I finished Speaker for the Dead, and it was still good, but kind of repetitive It covered a lot of the same themes and ideas Also, there were sections that dragged on a little bit than Ender s Game I thought Card did an exceptional job of linking the two bo [...]

    3. I loved these Reading them felt like watching two really good players play Risk Card has always done his homework, no matter the subject material for his books, and so it s a really neat bit of speculative fiction If the world were to be dominated united under a single head, how would the power struggle play out I also liked the ending to the series view spoiler Petra and Bean don t get to live happily ever after together, but it was in a beautifully tragic kind of way instead of a now I hate th [...]

    4. I actually really enjoyed reading this series, but not necessarily because the story lines were terribly original It was just a fun, engaging thriller of a read, mostly because I m a fan of Orson Scott Card and I tend to agree with most of his moralizing I did find that throughout the series all the characters started having similar voices there was little deviation in their collective thought processes But overall, a good continuation for anyone who wasn t completely sated by the Ender s Game s [...]

    5. Some of my favourite books of all time I m not usually a big fan of sci fi, but Card is able to use the spacey futuristic setting as a tool for an epic story These books are ultimately brilliant because of the way that they incorporate political, psychological, and ethical issues in a way that isn t preachy or contrived, but gives the story and characters depth and interest I was particularly engaged by the possibilities he creates regarding world politics in such an extreme situation.

    6. This review is meant to apply to books 2 4 of the Ender s Shadow Series Book 1 was phenomenal The subsequent books focus on politics and military strategy, with some smatterings of romance and genetic philosophy I always find myself losing interest the further I get into books 3 and 4.

    7. I liked the Shadow series better overall than the Ender s Game series, though Speaker for the Dead is still my favorite individual book This series was plot driven and had enough to keep it interesting through all four books We also got to see the development of Bean, Petra, and others.

    8. Great series of sci fi books Two parallel story lines 4 books in each My personal preference is down the Ender s Shadow line The books down the Ender s Saga line get a little bit weird after Book 1, but still worth it.
