Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card

Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card -- 382 pages

Ender is now 35 years old and on earth 3,000 years have passed since the xenocide of the buggers. But he hears about another alien species who has begun killing humans, and he knows that he must go to them, not only to help people understand this new ramen, but also for the young girl who called for a Speaker for the Dead, a girl who is faced with so much guilt that she denies herself any pleasure.

This book is part of the Ender Quartet. While it is very detailed and sometimes confusing, it is also intriguing and thought provoking. If you are going to read this book, then take your time reading each paragraph and be prepared to be wowed. Orson Scott Card has a brilliant mind that is fascinating to explore if you take the time to do so.

This book won the Hugo Award and Nebula Award.
