I agree that this one reads at times like Atlas Shrugged...a bunch of boring philosophy, going nowhere.
This could be the end for me with this series. I'm near the end, maybe 40 pages or less. The Asian connection is not called for.
Ask me about DEAN KOONTZ Forum T-shirts. Cool.

I have about 10 or so pages left and agree with you Gene. I did like the Asian thing at first but it got old quick. I have the 5th book in this series though.......
(a very nice man sent it to me)
and you do too, don't you?

We need to ask Snowman about the next one in the series, you never know it could be good, it could be better than Ender's Game.

I finished it last night and absolutely hated the ending! It was nothing but a blatant set-up for a sequel. Before reading the ending I would have given it a 7/10 or an 8/10 but now it'll get a 5/10 which on my scale is average and I skimmed over parts of it due to monotony, otherwise I would have put it down.

I completely loved the entire series, but the last two definitely not even close to the greatness of the first two.

The SHADOW series is much more action / military goodies. Less philosophy and science.

ENDER'S SHADOW
SHADOW OF THE HEGEMON
SHADOW PUPPETS
SHADOW OF THE GIANT

I thought ENDER'S SHADOW was #5 in the series. Is it a completely different series?
