Oh god, can't someone make him stop. Of course, having invested so much 
time already, I'll have to read them :-/

"Ender's Game" and "Speaker for the Dead" are award winning books and 
two of my favourite novels ever. The other two in the Ender series are OK.

Ender's Shadow is really interesting, and a very original idea - a great 
read if you've read the Ender Series. The rest of the books in the 
Shadow series are, IMO, appalling; I'm not much into the future history 
of the worlds religions, there is very little SF in there.

I read the short story first, long before it was a novel, and loved it. 
It's probably better as a short story, you still get the full impact of 
the central idea.
