There can be a problem when an author writes a book which is sequel to an earlier book, but which is completely different in style. I was very disappointed when I first read "Speaker for the Dead" after having read "Ender's Game". I can now read "Speaker for the Dead" and enjoy it as an excellent book in its own right, but at the time I was expecting a true sequel to "Ender's Game" (ie military SF) and so was disappointed.
