Speaker for the Dead
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 9:21 PM.
I just finished my third Ender book, Speaker for the Dead. permalink
It's sooooo good, so rich -- what a story and what characters! Oh my god. permalink
Anyway, the part I'm thinking about right now is where the speaker tells the truth and how the story keeps unfolding and twisting and turning, and we're hearing some of it for the first time along with the other characters, and some of it we already know (but they don't). permalink
A picture named piggie.jpgWhat's remarkable is how transformative the truth is. How perspectives shift, and how people who were stuck become unstuck. No need to say any more than that, don't want to be a spoiler. But this is an idea everyone should consider. How are you not speaking your own truth, what are you not telling yourself. As much as you don't want to look at it, you will be better off if you do. permalink
What's next? Xenocide, of course. :-) permalink
