Orson meets Marvel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ender's Game: Formic Wars: Burning Earth (Hardcover)
I love just about all the Enders books. This one is way different. In place of the wonderful humanity Card works into his prose, you have Marvel illustrations of characters and their facial and body expressions. Feels cheaper and shallower than his other novels but there's an adrenaline and morbid facscination with seeing the formics, hot and not-so-hot humans, and lots of fighting and forms previously left to your imagination. So it's a good cheap thrill rather than his more soulfully satisfying tales... so far. which brings up the worst part, it's only the first volumn of the i-don't-know-how-many series and leaves you with "to be continued." hope the next volumes come out quick! there any schedule for them?
