Harika bir başlangıç, ancak yolun 2 / 3'ünü fısıldar. Çok şaşırtıcı değil, biraz monoton oluyor.
I mean, granted, it's been awhile since I read all the way through the Shadow books. But I did think this was better than the majority of those, if nowhere even in the same ballpark as Ender's Shadow. That speaks more to the badness of the Shadow series than to Exile's goodness, though. The character development was shoddy, the pacing bizarre, and the overall "scope" of what happened dull. The only thing of real interest (to me) was the expanded relationship between Ender and the young boy from the end of Ender's Game -- but this was underdeveloped. And the completely weird subplot (if it can be called that, since the characters pop up for a lesson in morals and then disappear never to matter again) with the scientist and his lab assistant was frustrating and blatantly reeking of An Agenda. I don't need to be preached at, I just want to read a story. So just Tell the story. It breaks my heart to know that OSC considers this one of the best of his works.
Many interesting insights into Japan... loved the bits about "monoganashii," loosely translated as, "feeling nostalgic for the moment." Wish we had a word for that in English!
