Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Ender's Shadow is being dubbed as a parallel novel to Orson Scott Card's Hugo and Nebula Award-winning book Ender's Game. By "parallel" Card means that Shadow begins and ends at roughly the same time as Game, and it chronicles many of the same events. In fact, the two books tell an almost identical story of brilliant children being trained in the orbiting Battle School to lead humanity's fleets in the final war against alien invaders known as the Buggers. The most brilliant of these young recruits is Ender Wiggin, an unparalleled commander and tactician who can surely defeat the Buggers if only he can overcome his own inner turmoil.

Second among the children is Bean, who becomes Ender's lieutenant despite the fact that he is the smallest and youngest of the Battle School students. Bean is the central character of Shadow, and we pick up his story when he is just a two-year-old starving on the streets of a future Rotterdam that has become a hell on Earth. Bean is unnaturally intelligent for his age, which is the only thing that allows him to escape--though not unscathed--the streets and eventually end up in Battle School. Despite his brilliance, however, Bean is doomed to live his life as an also-ran to the more famous and in many ways more brilliant Ender. Nonetheless, Bean learns things that Ender cannot or will not understand, and it falls to this once pathetic street urchin to carry the weight of a terrible burden that Ender must not be allowed to know.

Although it may seem like Shadow is merely an attempt by Card to cash in on the success of his justly famous Ender's Game, that suspicion will dissipate once you turn the first few pages of this engrossing novel. It's clear that Bean has a story worth telling, and that Card (who started the project with a co-writer but later decided he wanted it all to himself) is driven to tell it. And though much of Ender's Game hinges on a surprise ending that Card fans are likely well acquainted with, Shadow manages to capitalise on that same surprise and even turn the table on readers. In the end it seems a shame that Shadow, like Bean himself, will forever be eclipsed by the myth of Ender, because this is a novel that can easily stand on its own. Luckily for readers, Card has left plenty of room for a sequel, so we may well be seeing more of Bean in the near future. --Craig E. Engler, Amazon.com

4.0 von 5 Sternen Slightly redundant, but insightful 19. September 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although the story line is exactly the same as Ender's Game - and the ending is somewhat spoiled since you already know the outcome (at least if you've read Ender's Game) - the book remains interesting due to the unique perspective of Bean. I really enjoyed seeing the story from a different angle. Other people I have recommended the book to have skipped the parts they think they already know - but I recommend reading them. You may see something you missed before.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Be cautioned if you loved the original. 13. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Had I never read "Ender's Game," I would have high praise to give to this novel, but I caution those who have a strong attachment to that original to approach "Ender's Shadow" with full knowledge of what you may find. Not only was I ultimately disappointed, but I almost wish I could un-read this book because of the diminishing light it cast upon the original for me.
The first third (or so) of the book, before Bean meets Ender, is a fine story and well-done. The plot of Bean's story is much the same as Ender's Game, and at times I found it a bit repetitive -- seeming sometimes to be merely a re-telling of Ender's early days with different names and places. Still, it was compelling and invoked enough of the original feel of "Ender's Game" for those very reasons that I enjoyed it considerably that far and was optimistic.
Thereafter, however, my impression changed sharply. From this point, the story builds itself by diminishing the original. Although I have read reviews by others who found it a wonderful tale of how Bean and Ender complimented each other, I found it a story of the true hero of the Formic War (the new politically-corrected name) -- Bean -- and the figurehead who was Ender Wiggin. This is, to an extent, and exaggeration, but I felt cheated out of the original story that I enjoyed so much, as if it had been torn down by this new re-telling and its magic forever tarnished. Be forewarned of this, if you cherise the original, and approach "Ender's Shadow" with caution. I, for one, wish now that I had never read this book and fear that "Ender's Game" will no longer hold for me the same magic it once did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Done 5. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Many of the reviewers here have only read four chapters, and a small number of people claim that this has led to misleading interpretations of the novel; that the book as a whole does not live up to its beginning. This is wrong.
I've read the entire novel(in one sitting). Ender's Game and Speaker For The Dead had an energy that Card seemed to have lost as he continued into Xenocide and Children of The Mind(Which I was too disgusted with to finish, by the way). In Ender's Shadow I was skeptical at first. Why, I asked myself, had Card returned for yet ANOTHER Ender book? After reading it, I know why.
Ender's Shadow is from a different presepective--obviously Bean's--and as such, it gives the reader not only a clearer picture of some of the events in the original and explanations for elements Card had neglected, but it also somehow manages to hold an interest in a character whose fate we already know from reading the first. Ender's Shadow was a daring and very risky piece to write, but Card has accomplished it brilliantly.
Whether or not it can effectively stand alone, I don't know. Is it as good as Ender's Game? No, it isn't. But, then Ender's Game--in my humble opinion--is one of the best books ever written. However, Ender's Shadow is a stunning read and one that will resonate with anyone who was drawn into the Battle School and anyone respected Card for his refusal to "dumb down" children. Buy it, read it, and you will understand what I mean.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ender's Game only scratched the surface... 19. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
To begin, the four stars do not mean that this is four-fifths as good as Ender's Game; I'm merely pointing out that it's not quite as good. But I suspect that someone who read this first might have the opposite reaction...anyway, here's my justification.
Ender's Game can never be repeated. It is unique. It is so simple yet so profound that it defies description. One does not read it; for a few hours, one lives it. That indefinable surreal quality is what Ender's shadow lacks, but I wouldn't ask for it again. This book has a fascinating story, well told, intense, and gripping. I don't want to give away detail, but the amount of depth it adds to the character of Bean, and the entire story, is amazing. I have noticed a decline in Card's recent books (Children of the Mind, Pastwatch, etc.), so I was pleasantly surprised by this. However, it isn't written in quite the same style. It's not as immediate or intense. (Still can't find the right words. If you read Ender's Game, you know what I'm talking about.)
And I wish he had refrained from making Bean so much smarter than Ender. Part of the appeal of Ender's Game was the mystique of "the one," alone. Suddenly we find out that Bean can do everything Ender can, except he's not likable enough. Hmm... Also, the idea that Ender was the only one in Battle School who hadn't heard about Bean--and no one bothered to tell him!--is a bit implausible.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gotta love the Battle School 1. August 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Here's the deal with Ender's Shadow: it's nearly as good as Ender's Game. In fact, if this novel came first, and there were subsequent stories about Bean and family, I may consider it better than Ender's Game. As a huge fan of the first novel about the Battle School participants, I had enormous expectations for 'Shadow,' and I must say that those expectations were indeed fulfilled.
