Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In Shadow Puppets, Orson Scott Card continues the storyline of Shadow of the Hegemon, following the exploits of the Battle School children, prodigies who have returned to an Earth thrown into chaos after the unifying force of the alien invasion they stopped in Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow has dissipated.

Foremost among these whiz kids is the brilliant Bean who, in Shadow of the Hegemon, rescued his comrades from his nemesis--the dastardly Achilles. Now, the down-but-not-out evil genius is again scheming towards global domination and vengeance against the irrepressible Bean. It's up to Bean and his newfound love, Petra, to outwit the young psychopath and save the world. Meanwhile, the other Battle School children are called to serve again as an expansionist China threatens the stability of post-Bugger War Earth.

Shadow Puppets is, for better or worse, exactly what readers have come to expect from Card. There are thought-provoking musings on geopolitics, war, courage, arrogance, good versus evil, and the concept of children wise beyond their years dealing with grave responsibility. Unfortunately, many of these furnishings are looking a little frayed around the edges, but fans will enjoy an exciting, fast-paced plot and a suspense-filled conclusion. --Jeremy Pugh

I like Orson Scott Card as author but I din't like this book very much. I loved Ender's saga:
Enders Game=excellent, Speaker for the Dead = genial - I personally prefer it to Ender's game for it's deeper psychological plot, Xenocide and Chldren of the Mind= is actually one large book but very good anyway
Shadow's Saga:
Enders Shadow = also excellent but of course not as revolutionary as EG, Shadow of the Hegemon = mediocre,Shadow Puppets= it's even worse. This two books remind me little bit of Tom Clancy's thrillers - lot of computer game like military action and political chessgames - ok psychological profile is probably better, but on the other hand the knowledge about countries depicted like Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, is relatively shallow. The story itself has it's psychological and logical flows as well:
*****Spoiler******
Love story between Bean and Petra and her child wish - very young (15?) I didn't buy it. Why do they go to Mollescu - the same guy who killed 22 of Bean's siblings - for in-vitro fertillization? Why does Peter behave so foolishly towards Achilles? By the way the change of personalities through the Ender's and Shadow saga is sometimes non credible: Peter from sadistic genial people manipulator to the average and naive politician, who had to be helped by his parents,..etc. The other point is that OSC wants to transfer "higher" ideas but it's not doing it very subtly. Those are e.g.: the marriage between man and women is sacred, even gays (Anton) and lesbian should marry opposite sex and raise children, in-vitro fertillization is wrong, embryo consisting of two cells is already human, people shouldn't change the human genes because it's God's work,.. The problem isn't me agreeing or disagreeing with those Christian (Mormon) ideas of OSC, but that they are stated too plainly and too didacticly like in the children text book and that's not worth of such excellent writer.

War der Vorgängerroman "Shadow of the Hegemon" noch recht interessant, geht es hier in der direkten Fortsetzung steil bergab.

Besonders schafft es Card diesmal nicht, seine Figuren glaubwürdig darzustellen. Sie wirken seltsam unnatürlich, was auch den zum Teil schlechten Dialogen geschuldet ist.

Ebensowenig wird die weltpolitische Situation, die eine der Triebfedern der ganzen Geschichte ist, nachvollziehbar dargestellt. Der Leser fühlt sich wie im luftleeren Raum und kann mangels tiefgehenderen Beschreibungen weder zu den Figuren noch zum Hintergrund eine echte Verbindung herstellen.

Die Krönung des ganzen ist die Beschreibung, wie es zur "Wall of India" kommt. An dieser Stelle hätte ich das Buch am liebsten in der Luft zurissen, so - Verzeihung - dämlich war die Idee (wer's gelesen hat, weiss, was ich meine).

Ich kann jetzt verstehen, dass dieser Band der Ender-Saga nicht mehr auf Deutsch erschienen ist.

In this novel the author, Orson Scott Card, focuses on secondary characters from ENDER'S GAME.
Peter Wiggin (a.k.a. the Hegemon, among other alias names), Julian Delphiki (a.k.a. "Bean"), and Petra Arkanian must deal with Achilles de Flandres. Achilles, if you recall from the previous books, was a genius. Mentally, however, he was very unstable. He wanted nothing more than the deaths of Peter, Bean, and Petra. Second on Achilles's list of things-to-do was to conquer all, starting with the Hegemony!
Suriyawong, Virlomi, Hyrum Graff, and Volescu appear as secondary characters. They were not just for show or used as "fillers" though. Each had vital roles in the book and possibly in the next. (My hope springs eternal.)
***** If you have not read the previous books, I highly recommend that you begin at the beginning, with ENDER'S GAME. Not only because all in this series is fantastic, but also because you when previous characters or events are mentioned, you would totally understand the reference and feel more a part of Card's vast universe. This author does not insult the intelligence of his readers; therefore, he will not go into deep detail on past events. He just mentions a person or event and carries on with the current story. I love that in an author!
Orson Scott Card made a fan of me with ENDER'S GAME. Of course, since I enjoyed it so much, I handed it over to my husband and the "Ender's Bug" (as I call it) bit him too. Card quickly made his way from my list of "Good Authors", to my list of "Favorite Authors", and currently resides on my "Elite List" which contains only four names (and one of them are deceased). I tell you that so you may understand that I do NOT consider myself to be overly dramatic when I say, "If you love Sci-Fi, you MUST read this series!"
Orson Scott Card rules the Sci-Fi universe! *****

I love the first two books of the Shadow saga, but i was kind of disappointed by this shallow ending. maybe i was hoping for an absolute climax way too hard ...
The story seems quite idealess, not as elaborate as the others, even the the caracters seem quite blurred sometimes. i think it was quite impossible to find a still more powerfull ending.
but, all in all, its not a bad book and worth reading if you already started the trilogy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favorites 28. Mai 2015
Von M. Bickle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've been reading these books since I was a child, and recently started rereading them. The books are very good, and the only bad thing I would have to say is that the description of the wars can be ... Long winded to say the least. I literally had to pull up a map of the world on my phone to be able to comprehend what Card was saying. I love these books, and I give this book 4 stars because I think it could be better. I'd say more like 4.5, because it was not excellent, and I think the first two were better, more like this was an in-between filler book between books 2 and 4, like Card was promised to create 4 books in the series like in the Ender's series and had to put in enough information here to lead to the last book, even if all of the information wasn't completely permanent.

All in all, a good read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes intellectual books that aren't terribly hard to read, and someone who accepts other cultures and religions. I believe, however, that this book is not aimed at teenagers very easily because of the sheer amount of history and previous knowledge that is almost required to be able to comprehend half of the references.

I hope my review has helped.
2.0 von 5 Sternen too much filler and fluff 25. Juli 2014
Von Andi Trowbridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read the original Ender books years ago and recently started from the Formic Wars and plan on reading through the the end of the original series again. This was by far not Cards best book. I understand that he is a religious person, indeed religion is sprinkled throughout his entire Ender Universe books, but this in more than others was very preachy. He was trying to convey the message that family is important, but I feel he could have done it much quicker than he did. It was almost like he was just trying to fill space to make the book longer. He could have taken out a lot of the fluff, divided the remaining material in half and put part at the end of the last book and the rest and the beginning of the next. With that said, on to the next book!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite as good as the previous books 30. November 2013
Von Bugs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
3rd book in 3 weeks. Shadow Puppets is a different type of book from the rest. Very in-depth in the relationship of Indo-China, and Muslim/ Arab relationships in Post-Formic Wars. Here's the struggles of how Peter Wiggin delas with his power of Hegemon, involving the rest of the characters of Bean's Enderverse.

There's a lot of spots for confusion, but and for the first time, I felt that Card got stuck in the mud in a few spots. However, I did enjoy the book... it read quickly again... and for the most part, remained a page turner!

Although this is my first 4 star review of this series, I would still recommend this book. Yet, I didn't finish this book with the drive to dive into #4, as I had diving into the previous books of this series

5.0 von 5 Sternen LOVE the ENDER SERIES! 29. September 2012
Von terster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have read every book in this series on the main timeline, not the spin off's. '

I found these to be a very quick read, entertaining, well written and memorable.

I'm a big fan.

I do not agree though where at times the author says that you don't have to read them in order. You do.

Some people have also commented on this author's political stance.

I wish so badly that stars and people in the public light would just keep quiet for there are more stars that i refuse to patronize now because they open their mouths. So i made a point NOT to read too much more about this author because i so much like the Ender/Puppet series. I love these books.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Slow moving continuation of the Ender/Bean series 22. August 2002
Von Gary M. Greenbaum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The genesis of the Bean/Achilles interaction was clear. Two telegenic, winning characters (to the other characters, not necessarily to the readers). One with a tragic physical flaw that is likely to kill him, the other with a tragic moral flaw, ditto.
The problem is that the writing, especially in this book, doesn't rise to the level that Card seeks.
Unless you enjoy endless conversations about minor issues, or five-page musings by minor characters, you are likely to find this book very slow moving indeed. This book resoves the Eastern crisis that Card set up in the last book. But it does it in almost a storybook fashion. After a drop by drop setup (Chinese water torture, maybe?), we are told of tremendous military manoevers that I really don't find convincing. Sure, maybe the Muslims can do all the things that Card has them do. But the denouement relies on all the things being UNDETECTED, it is never explained how that is possible. What happened to radar, satellite imagery, intelligence (in more ways than one)?
The whole military plot relies on the Chinese being slightly stupider than a comic book villian and little weapons advancement beyond 1949. Very strange.
The Bean/Achilles conflict reaches its resolution in this book as well, I will not say how. But by the time we finally get to it, it is difficult to care. In my opinion, this is due to Card's failure to make us feel anything except irritation when it comes to Achilles, however much we may like Bean. Shadow of the Hegemon gave Card the opportunity to make Achilles interesting, rather than just an almost hypnotically alluring (to the other characters) villian. It didn't work.
We get to see more of Peter Wiggin in this book. But he comes across more as a sullen teenager, who (no fewer than twice!) has to be forcibly woken up by his parents than the titular ruler of the world. If you're hoping to see how Peter transforms himself and his job into what we see at the end of Ender's Game, well, don't hold your breath, but if this is what you care about, hold on to your bucks until the next book. For there will be one.
A great present for the insatiable Card or Ender fan.
