Well done, but.... Even though it does well as a side story that does well in filling in knowledge of the over all story, I felt it had a little to much profanity for a story about mostly young people. I realize some of them had lives that hardened them but I still felt the level of profanity was high. Other then that it was a good story that was well read.
I love to read! And audiobooks are wonderful for my long commutes.
I would recommend this book to a friend. Both this book and Enders Game stand on their own as great works of art. Together they are a wonderful way to spend time.
I love Bean, his thoughts, his wisdom and questioning of all of humanity. The blending of Enders Game within "Enders Shadow" is a masterpiece.
All of the narrators are wonderful.
Yes, the extreme reaction(s) came throughout the story.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Bean was always my favorite character. This it was very enjoyable as he discovers what is truly happening in his world!
Having read ender's game, I really enjoyed this book as a complimentary novel that expanded upon the ideas of the first. It's great for readers who want that extra insight into the world that ender, bean, and the buggers call their own!
This is as good as the original. instead of reading speaker for the dead, and following Enders story line, read this much better "sequel" instead. I lost all interest in this universe after speaker for the dead, but this story rekindled my interest. A better story arc, and a better character to follow after the end of Enders game, if you want more of this story universe read this book instead.
