Anthem is a must read, and very enternaining. Then The Fountainhead. If you like that, you can attack Atlas Shrugged, but not before.
We the Living is also excellent, but VERY dark, not like the rest of her stuff.

Finished Ender's Game. Not sure what I think of the ending yet, but it certainly was a surprising turn of events.
I did want more on the Earth society and on the supporting characters. It looks like Ender's Shadow might do this for me. Maybe it will explain the whole population control and suppression of religion stuff. It seems like if you are at war with the aliens, you'd want as much population as possible and you'd pray like crazy.

I love ENDER'S GAME, but the ending really threw me for a loop.

Masha, the Shadow series is more political/military, so you may get what you are looking for. While the original Ender series is more science/family and some politics thrown in. Both are great on it's own merits.

I thought the ending for Ender's Game was amazing. It's fun seeing how Bean gets to that same conclusion.
