Publisher Description

Speaker for the Dead, the second novel in Orson Scott Card's The Ender Saga, is the winner of the 1986 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1987 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: The Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War.

Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered, but again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

Choreosophiac ,

Great concepts, but lacklustre performance

The constant mispronunciation of “hegemon” throughout the series is painful, but the voice acting is okay otherwise. It’s not terribly bad, but it would be nice to hear a reading by actors on par with the quality of the material. To their credit, they generally read in a way that maintains the picture of the story in my mind. There do seem to be a few mistakes here and there, which makes me wonder if they were written that way or misspoken. The book itself does a great job transitioning from the original ENDER’S GAME setting and introduces new characters and concepts seamlessly. XENOCIDE and CHILDREN OF THE MIND make equally-welcome follow-up additions to finish the series. Read or listen to those titles next if you enjoy the book.
