I absolutely love listening to books as well as reading print. Audible is crucial to getting through my day.
This is one of those stories that I think everyone needs to listen to. The voice acting is incredible and makes this one of the best novels I have ever listened to. This is the only book I have ever read/listened to that had my jaw on the floor at multiple times, not just the climax of the plot.It's the kind of novel that you wouldn't be able to stop listening to. Remember: The enemies gate is down.
I have loved Ender's game since I was 11 years old, now I am 24! I liked the use of multiple narrators for the different subplots. I couldn't really get used to Valentine's narrator, however. She sounded way too haughty, not the way I imagined Valentine. I found myself getting very annoyed with Valentine.
The narrators are what grab you at first until the story gets intense that you forget the narrators and are completely into the story. Great audible book - would recommend it to anyone.
Great story, even better when you consider how long ago the book was written.
Worth the download.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, hooked on it from start to finish. What a great story, very well narrated too. As soon as you realize that the main characters are very young and highly intelligent children you know you're getting your sought after sci-fi story.
It is full of emotions, gripping battles and side plots important to the development of Ender.
I want more!
Is Ender's Game... one of the best books of this era.. excellent and brilliant for anyone and everyone... BRAVO Orson Scott Card BRAVO!
You could sum up this story as..."Harry Potter goes to Hogwarts in space and learns lots of cool stuff so he can save humanity from the evil one". It's a great story, with good pace and fantastic voices. Lots of fun to listen to.
There is a "vocal resonance" technique that is akin to over-pronouncing words, the female narrator hammers one over the head with it.
O.S. Card, though full of himself (listen to his epilogue) wrote a book that absolutely blasts off about 2/3 through. Really great stuff, wish I had read it instead of listened.
This was a very entertaining story and the casting for the voices could not have been better.
