Not my favorite, but is leading to great things. Heavy on political aspects and lacking on the sci-fi parts of the first Ender's books

Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

I didn't start off wanting to read about Bean, but now I see that was a biased opinion from watching the movie first. Amazing book, and once again well read

Wasn't my favorite so far, hoping for more from the next. Very good though, a lot of philosophy.
