It's certainly a more cerebral story than Ender and nowhere near the action - but also more enjoyable due to the complexity of issues faced by each character.
Story mostly focuses on the politics behind a Star Trek-ish 'prime directive' regarding contact with alien species, but also delves in the subtlities that shape a human character etc.
Add to this a 'who dunnit' murder and there's lots to keep you interested.
You don't need to have read Ender to enjoy this.
