I wasn't a huge fan of the ending. And when I say ending I mean the VERY ending. Not the fact that he was actually fighting the Buggers when he thought it was a simulation. That was great. I just felt like he could have set up the ending really well for the sequels. I really wanted him to use the time change and have it so Peter was evil/ruling the Earth and Ender had to go back and kick his ass or something. I feel like that would have been way more bad ass.
Didn't see this post until now. I read somewhere that he wasn't happy with the ending of Ender's Game or how the rest of the series unfolded, and that's why he wrong the "new" sequel to Ender's Game. I don't blame him really.. Speaker for the Dead was okay, but the other two were kinda snoozefests.

Haha yeah. It was a great book and I loved it, don't get me wrong. I just think the potential for this book if the ending was done differently would have been through the roof.

My favorite book of all time. I can recite entire pages from memory at this point.

Any book suggestions with a great, surprising twist?

Outside of YA fiction I'm having trouble thinking of books that have twist endings. But the book I always suggest for anything is The Stranger by Albert Camus. It's probably my favorite book and it's a very quick read too.

I'm reading the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfield. I like it a lot. It's sort of a science-fictional re-telling of World War I. It's pretty awesome.
