Speaker for the Dead (Ender's Saga, #2) by Orson Scott Card

RATING: 5/5

Brilliantly woven, I mean, really. I'm not sure about the science, but it was good enough. Whether or not the "piggies" could have that level of sophistication of abstract ideas, I'm less convinced. I'm also not a big fan of the underlying assumption that it is every intelligent species' right to conquer and plunder as many planets as they can, bending 'lesser' species to their will. I'm still giving it five stars though, because it was a superbly crafted story.
