As good if not better than Ender's game.
It explores the same story as the original but from the perspective of Bean.
If you're familiar with Ender's Game then there's not really anything I can tell you about the story, but you should read Shadow. You won't regret it.
If you're not familiar with either then you're in for a treat. I wish I could live the journey that is this book (and Ender's game) again.

This is another one of those books that I will not give a summary to. Just read it without knowing anything. You really don't want anything about this adventure spoiled.

Both this and Ender's Game are excellent and I could not recommend them more. Don't be reluctant that it shares it's plot with Ender's Game, it will not bore you in any way.

Orson wrote this book after Enders Game as a way to see events through the eyes of others. He starts the book by saying it doesn't matter if you read it before or after Ender's Game but I think it should absolutely be after. This book is far more "complete", it reveals many angles that I think would spoil Ender's Game for anyone that hasn't read it. If you have read it this adds a rich layer of understanding on top, it makes you feel like a part of that world.

Absolutely amazing, one of the best books I've ever read.

I hesitated once I read some reviews that it was the same story as the original, but from a different perspective. Well I should not have because it was as good even almost better. The story is from a different angle and character and was brilliantly told. The intelligence behind characters combined with the main character of Bean is simply brilliant and entertaining. Glad that I picked up this book and will continue reading the others.

Got one for my younger brother and one for myself.

First of all, I can't believe how cheap these are. They are hard cover, in stores would have cost us three times as much. Shipped with in a week, very impressed!

We finished the book with in 4 days, amazing read. If you enjoyed Ender's Game, you will love this.

Great buy

I find it strange that Poke took so much importance in Beans mind...the author did not make me feel this in the beginning of the book.

Very well constructed story. Events flow well. Keeps you turning the pages faster and faster. Just found out it is not the first of the series...uukh! But good to find out there is more to read....Next!

Just as the title says... this book does incredible justice to it's namesake, forget that it's set in a parallel world to Ender. Bean is my Ender...

I have just finished listening to the Audio Book of Ender's Shadow and I was completely impressed with the professionalism of the production and the quality of the writing.
Ender's Shadow is not a sequel or a prequel. It's the same story as Ender's Game but told from the viewpoint of a different charactor, Bean. I was so amazed at the new insight into the original story that I found myself rereading passages of Ender's Game.
The quality of the production on the audio book is amazing. The producers wisely decided to use a full cast to read the story. When the story switched viewpoints and during certain dialogue pieces, it helped to keep the charactors straight and the audio book lively.
Orson Scott Card decided to add a special treat at the end of the audio book. On the final CD, there is a passage where he explains what has been holding up the Ender's Game move. (Yes, there will be an Ender's Game movie) He tells you of the obsticles that had to be overcome, how he overcame them, and why there will be an Ender's Game movie out soon. The insight that he provided is amazing and surprising.
If you are wanting to read Ender's Shadow, I challenge you to listen to it on audio book instead. I listened to it on at the gym and in the car. I'm sure that you will feel the same way I did; that it was well worth the unique experience.

I've always enjoyed Bean's character in Ender's Game and I was excited to learn more about Bean's past, his thoughts, etc. This book offered a different perspective of the Battle School, the games and the war. Overall, it was a good read.
