I agree with several of the comments by previous reviewers. This book is very complicated, it started slow and it slowly picks up. The use of Portuguese and the lengthy and unfamiliar names at times further complicated the book. The transformation a Piggie goes through in their several lives is so foreign that it is hard to grasp. The very special relationship between Ender and Human, one of the key Piggies, was very well done. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
