5.0 von 5 Sternen A fitting conclusion to one of the great series 19. Juli 2000
"Children of the Mind" finishes the story of EnderWiggins, as he finally reaches reconciliation with his past and present. A dazzling array of ideas and conflicts, the novel comes to a very satisfying conclusion. Starting "Children of the Mind" was a tremendous relief, because the ending of "Xenocide" had angered me with what seemed like an arbitrary escape from the plot complications. Rather, the introduction of Peter and Valentine from the combination of Ender's mind and the new mode of instantaneous travel come to fruition in this novel, and prove to be the point of Card's entire quartet. As always, this deeply religious man uses science fiction and fantasy as allegories to study the human spirit in all its facets. Essentially, Card is proposing the divine nature of the universe, and its identification with each and every mind as part of that divinity. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau proposed much the same thing, as did Robert Heinlein in "Stranger in a Strange Land." But Card takes these concepts to their broadest reaches in his recreation of the very structure of the universe, hinging the entire plot and character development of his entire series on this discovery. Like all endings should, this novel moves much faster than the previous two books; in many ways, it's the easiest to read of the series after "Ender's Game." Anybody who professes to be a science fiction fan needs to read this series; it's one of the classics of the genre

3.0 von 5 Sternen Thankfully, this is the end. 21. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Personally, I am glad that this is the end of the "EnderSaga". Basically every character has already been exploited tothe fullest, and addition of any more characters would seem artificial and contrived. It is particularly sad that Card doesn't seem to intend to flesh out the characters fully - in some places (particularly Grace Drinker's house) the chracters don't seem to think, but rather blurt out pieces of the plot. They are either omniscient or Card chose to leave out the wonderful passages delineating the characters' train of thought that were the key features of the earlier books. Likewise, the imagery is quite lacking. Despite the fact that the characters hop from planet to planet I felt little difference. The very idea that each nationality settled a single planet that is exactly like their homeland seems "a bit" contrived. The superscience (exchanges of soul, instant travel, etc.) is poorly handled, at least in my opinion. Card seems to use Jane's "teleportation" just like Ender's incredible intelligence in Ender's Game, to surpise and overwhelm foes. But unlike Ender's Game, where the reader cheers for Ender, in CotM I found myself thinking that Wang Mu and Peter were exploiting someone else's resources. It is truly a sad sight to see one's once-favorite character's die down. The plot is somewhat naive. The character's are either tangled up in their personal relationships or are very crude in their means (once again, Peter and Wang Mu). All in all, I am happy that this is the end. Any more would be stupid.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Book that should not have been written 26. März 2000
It's sad to see the Ender saga fizzle away in ever-increasing complexities and meta-physics which are not substitutes for new concepts and plot directions. Sometimes when you have painted yourself into a corner it's better to jump out a window and forget the little bit that is left to tidy up. I feel that it is at least two books ("Children" and "Shadow") past the point that this series should have been left to stand on its undoubted early merit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Only Regret: Wish it wouldn't End. 26. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
As a reader, I didn't find Ender's Game to be particularly great or noteworthy when I first read it. The plot just seemed like your standard "Ohhh, Big Bad Alien Insects invade and good ol' humans have to defend themselves" kind of theme. Card's characterization of Ender Wiggin, however, was truly extraordinary in both his depth and pyschological accuracy. Through the eyes of a scared, yet iron-willed 5 yr. old Card creates the essence of what humanity was feeling after the first two Bugger invasions: we fear you, and it is our fear that drives our will to survive, even if the price is Xenocide.
Ender's Game establishes the platform for the lead-in with Speaker for the Dead where Ender attempts to speak not only for those who call upon him, but partly for himself, the self that has tried to atone for humanity's, his sins. He never finds the peace he seeks among the stars until he travels to Luistania and becomes the father of another man's broken family. His role as adoptive father allows him to finally heal his own childhood scars and at last provide him some semblance of peace.
In Children of the Mind Card may attempt too much in such a short book, but he does attempt, and in that effort I praise him for what he does succeed in doing. A little bit overpreachy towards the end, but nevertheless, Card brings up important questions as to how and why we are the way we are. In Children of the Mind he gives an overview of where humanity started from in Ender's Game, glimpes of how humans reflected upon themselves in Speaker for the Dead, an examination of human/alien interactions in Xenocide, and a glimpse of where we might go in his final endeavor.

ENDERS GAME and ENDERS SHADOW are two of the best science fiction books ever. The other books in the series are bubble gum for the brain
