Speaker for the Dead starts out very slow, but picks up just before the halfway point. The characters are very well developed, including the piggies. The use of so much Portuguese was pretty unnecessary and sometimes distracting. The last about 1/3 was excellent. I recommend reading this book to anyone who loved Ender’s Game.
