philosophizing on life

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game series gets better and deeper with each book. Xenocide is very much a philosophical exploration of life and physics. Scott raises questions about whether and how life is designed, as well as the implications of having an ultimate designer. What works about the novel is that it's subtle. Scott weaves his themes into different parts of the story, like the same melody play on different notes. I particularly liked how the discussions between the Buggers and Pequeninos provides a sort of ironic commentary between chapters. While astute readers will note the connections, it takes at least a second reading to fully appreciate Scotts intricate web.
