I've read 8 of the books but haven't seen the movie.

If you've read the book, you won't like the "rushed" feeling of the movie. They also took quite a bit of the secondary storylines out (Peter, Valentine, Launchies, colonization)...

Overall I didn't really care for it.

I went and saw it with a mix of people who had and had not read the books. I thought they did a good job of distilling the spirit and main plot of the book without losing any of the set piece moments. Really, the book is all about the payoff and reveal of the major plot twist, which the movie did pretty well. As it was, I think the book was sort of unfilmable as it was, so they did a good job synthesizing a version that worked as a movie.

I do lament the loss of a lot of the subplots and details though. The Peter/Valentine bit was especially missed since they essentially wasted Abigail Breslin in the movie. I do think they could have done more with it in series form, but I think they got more right than they did wrong. Which is good, because the movie had the potential to br a train wreck...in space.

Lets just say there's a reason Card said they could never make Ender's Game into a movie and it took 20 years to do it.

I pretty much agree with all the above sentiments. It was a decent flick, but a horrible rendition of one of my favorite books from childhood.

Imagine Speaker for the Dead as a movie. Is my favorite one, but oy. Talk about your unfilmable novels.
