    Just picked this up today. I haven't read much science fiction since I was a teen but I love the Ender series. A friend suggested reading Ender's Game and I was hooked. Since that I've read Speaker For the Dead, Xenocide and now this one. I plan on reading Ender In Exile after this. If anyone has read the Shadow series, I'd love to hear what you think of them.

    I'm re-reading my priceless (to me) collection of Rex Stout paperbacks. 'Fer-de-Lance' is the first...

    I'm reading Galapagos, by Kurt Vonnegut. Somehow it just doesn't grab me the way his books usually do, but out of immense respect for Mr. V. I shall bore on through.

    I read that last summer, I pretty much had the same reaction to it that you are having.

    I keep meaning to pick up some of his work, just haven't figured out where to begin. I do spend hours at a time watching him speak on you tube.

    I am close to finishing No Easy Day. It is a fast read, and worthwhile IMO.

    As do I. Love his candid recollections. Feel sorry for Marlon though. A real well written portrait of the man behind the legend, by the man, and pleasantly surprised at his intelligence and emotional depth.

    I'm not an avid reader but got started with the REH Conan series early on from a friend's recommendation.
    He recommended King Conan (I'm pretty sure) and my interest never waned since that reading.......I was in sixth grade at that time.:)
    Just prior to the discovery of dirt.

    Back to topic....carry on.

    They're much better than they have any right to be. Just very good.

    I've been reading The Rebel by Albert Camus for about six months, and I'm already sixty pages into it!
