Never liked reading, but pretty good at listening!
After listening to all the other major "Enderverse" titles, this was my final (until the next comes out). Knowing the rest of the story made this short couple of stories a real treat. With the entire storyline to draw on, Card was able to makes some fun foreshadowing scenes for us to round out some of the side characters. This gives the "Enderverse" a bit more depth and clarity. Just enough that is reminded me how I had missed these characters. A quick jaunt down memory lane without launching into another saga makes these feel appropriately short, but still leaves me wanting more. The original Ender short is included as well to experience what started all of this.
These audiobooks define for me why this medium is so good. The details and words of the actual printed boom, with the pronunciation and accuracy from proven professionals.
This book, even a short, is just so good at the highlights.
Overall interesting thread in the ender verse, just had to complain about the stupid music they insist on putting in these books, coupled with the horribly mix job making it very hard to hear the dialogue! Enough already!
Great book, this is a must listen if you've read Enders Game and Speaker for the Dead. My only complaint, dear god, they need to stop playing so much background music! I had to re listen to a couple parts because the music was so distracting!!!! Agh!!

When you read a book, sometimes you want to know how things came to be. First Meetings is the how it came to be you may be looking for.
There was no need for the short story 'Ender's Game' because by the time you read this you've practically memorised the Book version. Or, like myself, the entire series and the shadow series as well.
Ah well like I said delightfully whimsical!
Yes I would.
I think a couple more pages for each story.
Yes, I like multiple performers.
Continuity in details.
These two short books are a joke. They seem like the chapters of the original books that were edited out…Do not waste time or money…Go straight to Ender in Exile. I love this series, but this was not ok.
