i struggled between four and five stars. i grew a bit antsy during some sections. all in all, though it was brilliant and beautiful. i was very effected and moved by the ending and wanted to choose five stars based on the last chapter and how it colored the whole book. however, it was a bit too neat and tidy. still... i didn't really mind. if i based my rating purely on enjoyment throughout... i would choose four stars. plus, there were some sections that seemed a bit forced. but this book strikes me as one that i should read over and over and that will mean more each time. i think there is much to learn and discussions to be had based on this book... the many descriptions of battle maneuvers and what not make me unsure as to whether i'll do that. maybe this is a good bookclub pick? defintely a god book to write about. Read the second time in january 2010 - I only did it because my bookclub made me... And I almost skipped it altogether. I think the first time I read the book I felt slightly disappointed. Somehow the way people spoke about the book set me up for a let down upon the actual reading. However, going into the book with my expectations lowered the second time made it a totally different experience. I LOVED it. I loved Ender. I even found the battles interesting this time. Really beautiful book. Totally worth the second read.
