Set 3,000 years after the events of ENDER'S GAME, Card's SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD follows Ender Wiggins to Lusitania, a Brazilian colony on a distant planet where intelligent extraterrestrial life has been found for the first time since Earth's initial encounter with--and destruction of--the "buggers." An ensemble cast of performers explores the mystery of the culture and the biology of the pequeninos, the gentle natives of the planet who seem to ruthlessly murder their most valued members. The cast includes David Birney, Scott Brick, Gabrielle de Cuir, Amanda Karr, Lisa Nemacheck, John Rubenstein, Stefan Rudnicki, and Don Schlossman, who read alternating sections with little interaction, staying true to Portuguese pronunciations, and giving life to the emotional and intellectual challenge of the story. Brilliant and compelling. S.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
