Orson Scott Card's Speaker For The Dead Book Review

Ok, I have read the second book in the series, Speaker for the Dead. Well, Card did it again. And this time he gave us a great story, although perhaps difficult to totally believe at first, but then, well it is supposed to happen in the future, and it is a book. First, so many characters, which at first I thought would be hard to follow, but none of them are flat or stale. You can reasonably be thrown into this book and first hand meet all of these people and know them. It is simply good. And the story has so many plot twists and turns, just like the original you almost don't want to put it down. I loved this book and the ending is perfect. That's all I can say, and did I mention, it also won a Hugo and a Nebula.
