  1. 5.0 stars Sometimes love is not a strong enough word so I am going to borrow from Woody Allen, I LURVE THIS BOOK This is my second favorite book in both Ender series behind only Speaker for the Dead In fact, like Speaker for the Dead, I thought this book significantly surpassed its predecessor, Ender s Shadow which I loved by the way This story takes place in the latter half of the 22nd century so my poster above is for the 2208 elections , soon after the end of the Formic aka Bugger War when al [...]


  2. I m tired of you Orson Scott Card.Ender s Game was fun Ender s Shadow was a similar kind of fun in the same setting I had hoped Shadow of the Hegemon would follow the nifty character of Bean back to Earth.It does sort of.Have you ever met one of those nerds who owns multiple editions of Risk Who had complete DVD series spanning half a wall that s entirely about World War 2 Who owns board games relating to a single historical battle That s how Card seems to roll these days.This book scrapped the [...]


  3. I enjoyed Shadow of the Hegemon but not nearly as much as Ender s Shadow, the first in the Shadow series.I don t know, and I had this same problem after finishing Speaker for the Dead Book 2 in the main Ender series , but I just feel like this series is getting beat to death I m not the only one right As good as these sequels are, I still think Ender s Game with possible addition of Ender s Shadow should have been left that way, on its own, no sequels I know, now I m beating a dead horse.I still [...]


  4. This is my second book by Orson Scott Card born 1951 and he is still to disappoint I think he is a born storyteller as I haven t met anyone like him who wrote a book Ender s Game in 1985 and after 25 years, it is now a full length series branching into several two excellent sagas, i.e The Ender s Saga 7 books, 9 short stories and The Shadow Saga 4 books published called Bean Quartet, 2 forthcoming So 11 books so far with related 9 short stories is something that I have not seen yet done successf [...]

  6. I didn t enjoy this one as much as Ender s Game or Ender s Shadow As in those two, the plot and action were just backdrop The book was really about people deducing what other people were thinking In the previous books, this was used for character development and I enjoyed it In this one, it seemed like the author used it as a gimmick Rather than use it as a tool to accomplish something else, he just trotted it out to do tricks over and over It accounted for most of the book and got old The whol [...]


  7. I hope I can finish this book I liked the Ender quartet and Ender s Shadow too much not to try Yet it is difficult to actually believe the same person wrote Shadow of the Hegemon and the others Ender s Game is a fun fast paced book of adventure while the other three books in the Ender quartet borderline on genius The formulations of issues of xenophobia are uncanny in SFTD, Xenocide, COTM and integration of Christian beliefs into the mix yield an unparallel argument for empathy being central in [...]


  8. Listened to the audiobook 2 stars for the book, one for the audio production.First, the audio production After the excellent production of Ender s Shadow, this book returns with the same actors, but gets everything wrong The volume is too soft Many of the actors mispronounce hegemon and in some places this is crudely dubbed over by a different actor Achilles name is pronounced inconsistently throughout The music is terrible and too long Overall, it sounds like a high school project and not a pro [...]


  9. God I d been having an Orson Scott Card s books marathon these last few weeks So far, since there is nothing left of his books in my hand that I haven t read yet, I ll have to take a pause reading his books and resume till I find his other books then especially the sequels of this book After checking the rating details of this book on , I found out that I belong to those people who are twenty two percent addicted at this Unfortunately, since before reading a book, I always refer the rating detai [...]


  10. Honestly, if I hadn t read the third book in this series out of order and enjoyed it, I don t know that I would ve continued the Shadow series There were just so many things about this audiobook and book that annoyed me Now, I know that a lot of OSC s religious views and misogyny come out in his books but this is the first one that has really annoyed me A lot of his characters always seem to know what is best and it is frustrating to listen to In addition, this particular audiobook is poorly don [...]


  11. This book moved along at a pretty good clip It was easy to read and kind of entertaining I like Bean So it was OK.Except that it was really pretty terrible All the Battle School kids are back on earth and they are basically shunted away as being just children That means that all the kids who won the war for mankind s survival now have subordinate roles And that s just fine.But then there s Achilles He got into Battle School, and was there for a couple of weeks He got kicked out and sent to a men [...]


  12. Compared to other scifi fantasy books, Orson Scott Card s Ender series is pretty good I ve read three of the four on the Ender series Ender s Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide , and two from the Shadow series Ender s Shadow and this one Shadow of the Hegemon doesn t totally ruin the series like Xenocide did, and the characters all seem true to themselves and are developed decently Besides that, the book is marred with the usual flaws unrealistic intelligence for young teenagers, writing that [...]


  13. This was fascinating As I am sure I have said in reviews for previous additions to the Ender series, I love seeing how the characters minds work They are all so genius This addition was a particular treat because the earthly war was something not previously visited in this series So far, two books had been set in Battle School, and three had been regarding the planet Lusitania and saving the native species, the Pequeninos I was surprised to see the characters caught in this new and exciting situ [...]


  14. MINI REVIEW I am sure that were I given an opportunity to converse with author Orson Scott Card regarding the vast empires, rulers kings and military leaders that the world has seen rise and fall, from Alexander the Great to the great Caesars, from Charlemagne to Charles V, from Napoleon to Hitler and Stalin and Churchill and Roosevelt, we d have an engaging time I m boring that way in fact that that s how I once caught the attention of a former, handsome yet equally boring boyfriend, with a lon [...]



  15. Not nearly as ambitious as Ender s Game or Speaker for the Dead, or even Ender s Shadow, but just as well done There s nothing Earth shatteringly poetic or profound, it s just good clean fun And what fun it is, featuring political intrigue, nonstop action, and always intelligent, occasionally hilarious dialogue Needless to say, I enjoyed this entry in the Ender series immensely, and found myself wishing that I had found it years ago Thirteen year old me would have eaten this up.Despite what I sa [...]


  16. Orson Scott Card has a natural talent for stretching a novella into a novel Pages and pages of dialogue simply regurgitate things we already know Ideas and themes are thoroughly beat into your brain by sheer repitition I find myself skipping entires pages without consequence because there is no content there Between the fluff, however, is an engaging story The consequences of sending all the student of Battle School back to Earth is fascinating and Card capitalizes on this Poltiics and military [...]


  17. A very smart, engaging read though without the mass appeal of its predecessor, Ender s Shadow, mainly due to Card s decision to drop virtually all the sci fi aspects, as well as to cut down on the amount of action contained in the story What you end up getting is a lot of political intrigue and strategizingke one of those alternate history novels, but taking place in the future This would be a very difficult novel to pull off, seeing as how most of the characters in the story are geniuses who co [...]


  18. This is the second book I ve read in the series in the same universe as the Ender Quartet I read it basically in 24 hours, which speaks to its fast pace and readability I m starting to like this series possibly even than the quartet There are a lot of really interesting characters the complex Bean, the ambiguous Peter, etc Plus I really like the theme of genius kids who aren t cutely precocious, etc This book deals a lot with military strategy, which doesn t tend to be my thing, but I was never [...]


  19. Kind of similar to Robert Jordan s last few books in the Wheel of Time series, where he tries to write political intrigue, but doesn t do a great job I think that real political intrigue doesn t get conveyed well in a page turner format, since the only way to explain everything is through a ton of exposition.We re constantly being told to appreciate how smart Bean and Petra are, with no real option other than taking the author s hand waving as evidence.I think I m slowly realizing that despite t [...]




  20. Originally posted on SpecFic Junkie.Ender s Shadow was fine, if not great This book is bad and should feel wrong Orson Scott Card decides to get weirdly preachy and weird moments, he keeps emphasizing how nothing but children matter, he s incredibly offensive to people with genetic disorders cough ME , and he seriously says at the end that Guns, Germs, and Steel laid the ground rules for him And everyone should read it Oh, and he can t write women Spoilers everywhere.Wow That was a lot to pack i [...]


  21. Genial continuaci n de La Sombra de Ender que, en mi opini n, la supera por mucho Un tira y afloja geoestrat gico fabuloso en el que no falta la evoluci n de los personajes, haci ndolos muy reales y ayudando al lector a empatizar con ellos.


  22. This actually deserves a 3.5 rather than a 4 Hello Give me half stars I m tearing through this series at a rate of about one a day, which must mean something I m following the two storylines in parallel chronology ish, as they move at different rates of speed , by which I mean that I ve read Ender 1, Bean 1, Ender 2, and now Bean 2 I like the Bean storyline because it deals with things that seem very real the problems left behind on Earth after the globalizing external foe has been defeated The [...]


  23. March 2010Previously Ender s ShadowWith the Bugger Formic War over and humanity triumphant, the children of Battle School are no longer needed Everyone gets sent home to their families in their respective countries which, due to the absense of any external enemy, maintain an uneasy truce But hey, at least everyone s united, right The world is at peace, right Everyone is going to live happily ever after and nothing will possibly go wrongright Wrong Remember the end of Ender s Game, where we learn [...]


  24. The follow up to Ender s Shadow, this unfortunately showcases Card s tendency to write sequels for the sake of growing a successful franchise, even when the stories don t quite merit it This is not a bad book, but it suffers in comparison to its predecessor Again, this book showcases many of Card s strengths internal character monologoues reveal mostly well developed characters with psychological foibles moral and religious discussions debates strong young adults But, as with the first book, Bea [...]


  25. This sequel to Ender s Shadow continues the story of Bean, while bringing over some plot that started in Ender s Game The members of Ender s Jeesh or group who fought with him in the invasion of the formics are held in the highest esteem of battle school graduates They are considered the elites or the best to come out of Battle School, and every country jockeying for world leadership wants one, or all, of them to lead their armies All members of the Jeesh are kidnapped by one ambitious nation al [...]


  26. I was underwhelmed by Ender s Shadow, but this book was much better The characters are fully developed, and we learn about their thoughts through their conversations and internal dialogues There are plenty of action packed scenes that quicken the story s pace.This book takes place after Ender s Game and Ender s Shadow, when the kids from Battle School have returned to Earth Now that the threat of the Buggers is gone, the nations have begun vying for political and military supremacy, exploiting [...]


  27. My Rating Scale 1 Star Horrible book, It was so bad I stopped reading it I have not read the whole book and wont2 Star Bad book, I forced myself to finish it and do NOT recommend I can t believe I read it once3 Star Average book, Was entertaining but nothing special No plans to ever re read4 Star Good Book, Was a really good book and I would recommend I am Likely to re read this book5 Star GREAT book, A great story and well written I can t wait for the next book I Will Re Read this one or times [...]
