Ender's Shadow, by Orson Scott Card (Tor, New York, 1999)
Having read Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead while visiting one son-in-law's library for the birth of a grandchild, it seems only fair to read Ender's Shadow while visiting the other son-in-law's library for the birth of the next grandchild.
Although I liked Ender's Game a lot, I was disappointed by the sequel and thus did not pursue the series any further. But Ender's Shadow is Ender's Game as seen from the point of view of Bean, one of my favorite characters, and was recommended to me, so when I found it on the bookshelves here I couldn't resist.
It's good. Maybe better than the original. Not great, but fun to read and hard to put down for anything less than a grandchild.
