After those I plan on reading Card's Empire.


yay no life ;_;

Emphatically, go the other direction on that series. Instead of the Empire quadrilogy or whatever it's gotten to be, read Children of the Mind etc. Those three books are a hell of a lot better than Ender's Game.

Yes. Emphatically yes. I do not want to argue opinion with you. I am merely letting (Poon) know that there is differing opinions.

Honestly, it's irrelevant, because I read somewhere that he's linking the two sections whenever he gets around to writing the next book. So to understand it, you need to have read all seven or eight of his Ender "universe" novels anyway.

I absolutely cannot fathom your opinion that the Bean plotline is better than the Ender plotline, though. Whatevs.

EDIT: Lovin' the Hurley celebration though.

I just finished reading Mr. Tuckett by Gary Paulson. Very good book, but the climax could have been a tad better.

Lots of Rand lovers here. Ayn Rand was a "monster," not Kant. Her work was earth shattering. Now it is middling.

You're going to have to explain the meaning of this to me, very slowly. I cannot even begin to comprehend how you came up with such an idea.

I hope that was slow enough.

I can confirm Tannah's statement, since every other person here at NYU is a friggin hipster. Also, have you guys seen Skyline talk on IRC? He uses double spaces.

I found it ponderous, but parts were superb. You know what sucks? We're still, five years later, waiting on the companion novel or whatever you want to call it. The next one.
