The End of Ender's Game

I finally finished the Ender's Game quartet last night. It was
an excellent series, it was filled with interesting characters
and interesting ethical dilemas. The last book came across as
much more talky than the previous three, although he warns you
about that in the prologue to Speaker for the Dead.

If you've never read Ender's Game, I highly recommend it. It's
one of the best books I've read. The last three books are very
different than Ender's game, although they build upon the story
and elaborate on the ethical dilemas in a much more detailed
way.

After finishing Children of the Mind, I started reading Angels &
Demons by Dan Brown. If you don't know, Dan Brown is the author
who wrote the Davinci Code. This book is the first in the
Robert Langdon series, it's about the Brotherhood of the
Illuminati. It's been very interesting so far. I really like
how he puts science into the book as well, he's had a decent
discussion of the X33 transport plane, and the first part of the
book takes place at CERN, so he gets some good instruction on
particle physics as well.
