These are great stories that make fine additions to the Enderverse. However at the beginning and end of each story there is this overpowering loud vaguely oriental music that drowns out the narrator. Another drawback, the chapter breaks don't match up with the book WTF they don't even match up with the beginning and end of each story
Great story! But the beginnings and endings are drowned out by music that is louder than the story teller.
I enjoyed the short stories very much and the narrators did a great job. However, the schizophrenic music that played at integral parts was so loud and distracting, it made it impossible to focus on the spoken words.
Reference: ch. 2 @ 1:15:30, ch. 3 @ 2:28:30, ch. 4 @ 3:42:17, ch. 5 @ 5:13:24
All except the music. The characters were well portrayed by the actors, but the music was distracting and poorly done. Sometimes it was so loud that you couldn't hear the voices clearly.
Ender's Game because it gives back story
Get rid of the music and make the transition between the three sections a bit more clear. Perhaps in the introduction a statement that this is three different mini-books.
I've feasted on the full story set of Andrew, and Valentine's history filling lives with shadows of undisclosed dramas brought to light here. Knowing Ender's parents gives him a depth as a real being, a person comming out of human people.
This review of "Ender's Game" helped, with reminding me how legends grow, & change focus a culture grows forgetful of how it was back before later, Thank you SCOTT, thank you.!
I loved the stories. the talents were fabulous. the production needs work, as the music overwhelms the voices. but otherwise, Great!
