ENDER'S SHADOW reviewed - TPL Teens

Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card isn’t exactly a sequel to Ender’s Game. It’s more of a parallel to the book, filling in its gaps from Ender’s friend, Bean’s, point of view. It covers Bean’s backstory and how he got into the space program along with how he eventually got put into Ender’s team. It even covers a lot of coincidences that Ender had been to naïve to realize until too late.

I really enjoyed the book because it had a lot of interesting information that paired well with Ender’s game. I’d recommend this book to whoever who likes Sci-fi with a lot of adventure. Reading Ender’s Game beforehand is optional, since most of the necessary information from Ender’s Game is covered in Ender’s Shadow too.
