When I first read this book I was in middle school and I hated it It was such a disappointment as a follow up to the brilliance of Ender s Game I re read it when in grad school and it was an entirely different experience The book has elements of mystery religionmysticism anthropology albeit fictional anthropology philosophy politics and intrigue But its got a very slow start and there isn t much in the way of action its all about two cultures trying to understand each other Its not a traditional sci fi read but for the right reader it can be a really deep and meaningful experience

Orson Scott Card has said that Speaker for the Dead is the book he always meant to write and that the only reason he wrote Ender s Game was as a preuel so he felt a little baffled when Ender s Game ended up becoming his most famous and most read work After reading Speaker for the Dead I understand where he s coming from The complexity of issues tackled in Speaker for the Dead are much deeper than those in Ender likewise the cultures and worlds explored through Speaker are much intricate One thing I love about Orson Scott Card which I somehow always end up forgetting when I m not reading him is that despite the fact that he writes fairly hard science fiction his stories are still completely character driven Unlike many SF writers he spends as much time developing his characters as he spends developing his society and the result is a compelling book regardless of the plot Heck I even enjoyed Ender s Shadow which basically had the same plot as Ender s Game except told from a different character s perspectiveDespite my enjoyment of the book there were a few things that annoyed me Although Orson Scott Card s characters are well developed the female characters seemed to have less complexity in particular the principle female character spent about 34 of the book wallowing in her own self pity This may endear her to male readers with a knight in shining armor complex as indeed it endeared her to Ender but as a female reader I wanted her to just get over it already Orson Scott Card seems to play the female moral superiority card even as he grapples with some real ambivalence about female leadership the female leaders in this book were either veiled tyrants whom Ender felt compelled to put in their place or rendered ineffective as leaders the moment Ender burst on the scene Finally Ender himself is a main character in this book whom you re almost tempted to despise just because the author is so clearly in love with him But truth be told that didn t keep me from being a little enad with him myself although the piggies an alien race introduced in this book held my heart and my attention most completely
