Three thousand years have passed since Ender Wiggin won humanity's war with the Buggers. Ender remains young, travelling the stars at the speed of relativity; a hundred years or more might pass on Earth while he experiences a month-long voyage. In three thousand years, Ender's name has become anathema: he is the Xenocide, the one who killed the only other sapient race humankind had found in all the galaxy. The only ones, that is, until the planet called Lusitania was discovered and colonized. The discovery was seen as a gift to humanity, a chance to redeem the destruction of the Buggers. Ender, now known only as the Speaker for the Dead, comes to Lusitania to speak for those who have died and discovers that in order to tell the truth about them, he must unravel the secrets of Lusitania.

It was a fun to reread this book. I like the concept of having a Speaker for the Dead. A non-editorialized account of the deceased is appealing.
