#ChildrenoftheMind (Ender’s Saga, #4): My thinker needs a break…


Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot of thinking going on here…

It took me a decade to read the rest of Ender’s story after he unwittingly destroyed the Buggers. In the end, I’m glad I finally did. I’m probably done with OSC for a long while though…he writes in the deep end, but I’m more comfortable splashing in the shallows.

Children of the Mind is a wonderful send off to a character as great as Ender. If you’ve gotten this far, you’re going to want to read it. I expect you’ll be pleased.

I’m happy to be finished. After 4 books heavy with ethical dilemma, studies of emotion, discourses on the responsibility of humans in the universe, and determining the value of life, I’m ready to read something that allows me to put my thinker on autopilot.

Happy reading!

    • Try the Shadow series too, beginning with Ender’s Shadow. It tells the story of Ender’s Game, but from Bean’s POV. The series then flows Bean and the rest of Ender’s friends back to Earth where they become military leaders for their respective countries around the world. It’s very, very cool.
