This book finished the story of Ender's but with an unexpected continuation. I will now move into the Ender's Shadow series.
I have read many books by Orson Scott Card and enjoyed them all! Read Pathfinder!
i loved the series but this was a little hard to finish. it seemed like some of the conversations were unnecessarily repetitive and drawn out
Since the narration is done by the same people who perform "Xenocide," it is quite easy to get into the flow. The vocal characterizations are brilliant, expressing even more than the words themselves do. There are so many great moments, it is hard to come up with one. If I have a favorite, it is Peter's soliloquy when he and Wang Mu deliver the Molecular Disruption Device to the hold of the flagship of the Lusitania fleet. I am looking forward to the coming-together of the Ender and Shadow series for a resolution of the phylotic threads created in those two brilliant series.
Excellent performance. A bit too philosophical. Felt out of place in the series. A number of facts and conversations were repeated from previous books. Found that boring. Overall, I continued to enjoy the characters and I enjoyed the sense of discovery that was carried on from Xenocide.
Card and the performers truly please with the story and captured emotion in the reading of this epic classic finale to the Ender Saga. I cannot wait to listen to Enders Shadow as I continue to learn more about the Universe Card has created, in a way I've literally never heard before. Growing up reading these books was amazing to me, but being able to listen to them again and live the same story in a whole new way is truly an experience I cherish. I can't wait to go to work so I can listen to more of these books.
Love a good story that is unpredictable, keeps my figuring things out, and is unique. I am a logical thinker and thus love books with logic.
Overall the book gave me an introverted perspective on myself through the science explained throughout the story. Very interesting storyline
I never would have been able to finish this book if I had to read it. I was compelled to finish the series however. I'm glad I did. But this story was overly maudlin.
I like the Ender series that deals with dynamic of human nature, fear, conflict with a less emotional view point - the female characters in this book (not as bad in the other) are over the top emotional. I took a serious dislike to many of them.
