Continuing my Ender's Shadow series reread with book 2. This book focuses on what happens in the aftermath of Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow on earth. What should be done with the military genius kids that are no longer needed to save the planet? What happens when earth no longer has a reason to remain unified against alien invasion?

This book is noteworthy for pulling off being a successful side-quel, not retelling Ender's Game, but telling a new, compelling story that just happens to share a timeline and characters.
I'm re-reading this, though it's my first time on audio. I'd forgotten how brutal the beginning is as Bean tries to survive on the streets of Rotterdam...before he meets Ender and before he finds a new future that changes the world.

This is a reread, but first time on audio. Gladwell narrates the audio and proves to be quite good. The book has been out the better part of 10 years now and amazes me how much it has penetrated the cultural awareness. It popularized the "10,000 hour rule" for becoming an expert in a skill or talent. Recommended reading.
