In that time his name has become anathema, for he is the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings. No other has been found - until Lusitania is discovered. The young race there offers mankind a chance to redeem the previous destruction. The only humans allowed near are trained xenobiologists. But once again there are tragic misunderstandings. And when Ender, as Andrew Wiggin, is called to Lusitania to speak for the dead - to present to the community the terrible truth of why men have been killed by aliens - his actions can, and will, reverberate through an entire galactic empire.Read Less

This is a sequel to "Ender's Game", an excellent sci-fi novel. "Speaker for the Dead" has a very different premise than "Game" and ingenious plotting. Be sure to read "Ender's Game" first. The rest of the Enders books are not worth bothering about; not one of them comes close to "Ender's Game" or "Speaker for the Dead."

This second installment in Card's famous series is almost as good as its predecessor. This book takes the tale of Ender even further. It is slightly more complex in its plot line but it is a truly rewarding read. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first book and for all fans of science fiction.
