Last Saturday, when I was down in the city centre shopping, I found a bargain in a bookshop, when I found two packages of three books each in the Ender’s Game series, by author Orson Scott Card, for a total of just above 500 Norwegian kroner (about 60 euro). I did borrow the first book from my brother some years ago, and got caught in it, but I didn’t know then that there were this many more books in the series.
I now started by reading Ender’s Shadow, which takes place in parallel to the plot in the first book. Since it has been a couple of years since I read the first book, I thought it’d make a good point of entry, especially since the direct sequel Speaker for the Dead takes place a long time after the first one. And even though I know how it will end, although I can’t remember every small detail, it is a book I have a hard time stopping reading. To be able to write two books whose plot is more or less the same, making both of them fascinating in their own right, is something that really should be commended.
I haven’t had time to read all the six books yet, but I can, at least, recommend the what I have read so far. If you like sci-fi, I’m sure you’ll like these books!
