Présentation de l'éditeur
A PLANET LIES OPEN TO ATTACK. THERE IS STILL HOPE - BUT TIME IS RUNNING OUT
The Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy the planet Lusitania. Once again the human race has grown fearful.
Jane, the evolved computer intelligence, can save the world' three sentient races. She has learned how to move ships outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light-speed limit.
But it takes all the processing power available to her. With Starways Congress shutting down the Net, world by world, soon Jane will not be able to move the ships. Ender's children must save her if they are to save themselves.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

I have to say, I was very surprised by the plot twists in Xenocide and Children, and this book gives the resolution that Xenocide withheld. It is not as dense in terms of philosophy as Xenocide was, but it gives a good response to those questions that were raised and fretted over in it.
There are a few typos as there are in Xenocide, but they are not very troublesome. The characters of this book atone, and grow from the flaws that we see in the previous book, and the ending has a great climax like we see in Ender and Speaker. It's masterfully written, as are all of the books in the series and for all the same reasons, and despite its flaws, it's a truly great book.
As a whole, you cannot really judge Children without the previous books - whereas Speaker or Ender could be read without having read any of the other books, you can't really enjoy Xenocide or Children without the previous two books, and you certainly can't appreciate either Xenocide or Children to the full intended effect without getting to the end of this particular book. I am sure if you truly loved the characters of Speaker, then you will come to full satisfaction by the end of this book. Just consider Xenocide and Children as one very large novel, and I think you'll find you love them both on an even greater level.
The piggies and the hive queen take a back seat and are basically a side item in the story. Ender is a nobody who withers away as if he was never the hero of the series. Jane becomes a less loveable character, and Novina and her kids all become unbearable to read about.
I don't know why Plikt was ever introduced to the series- she has literally no purpose. Everything either concludes in the dullest or most undesirable way imaginable, or it doesn't even conclude at all. One reviewer said the last 100 pages pick up the story a bit, so I struggled onward to reach the 'climax' only to realize I made it all the way to the end of the book with no such feeling that the book ever got better.
I would say to read books 1 & 2 for sure- amazing! Read book 3 if your bored, then either read a spoiler for book 4, or make up the ending you would have liked this book to have and pretend THAT'S what happened!
