entertaining, gripping and great characters
This is a unique story like none other in its genre
They both made the characters come alive and made it fun to listen to the story, enhancing the listener experience.

How did i miss this one!? I would've loved to hear this book when I was younger, but as a twentysomething in the age of post-Harry Potter and Wheel of Time fantasy 'boy-hero' epics, this was a breath of fresh air that was totally engrossing and enjoyable! My only complaint is that with the cast of readers, they tend to switch narrators at seemingly random moments. Other than that, I would still recommend this book 100%!
This narrator sounded like he was new to reading out loud. I couldn't get into the story because he was so awful and gave up on the book a third of the way in. Too bad too, it seemed interesting. Guess I'll wait for the movie.
Unabashedly asking for more.
As the title says, I waited a long time before ever reading/listening to this book. I'm not sure why I waited though... I actually own several signed OSC books that I was able to obtain when I met him last year at a speaking arrangement. It wasn't until I returned a rather boring/poorly thought out book to Audible that I decide to make the trade for Ender's Game. I'm glad I did. The book's overall story, plus the performance were both excellent!
Ender Wiggin is a character that will stick with you. Long after the story has finished, Ender's emotional childhood will linger. He'll make you question what it means to be heroic- what it means to be the person to "save the world". Ender's Game is truly thought out book that I highly recommend.
I rarely re-read a book, but this may be an exception. The story arc is one that relies on the suspense of not knowing.
The ending was very well paced and tied everything up in a surprisingly open but satisfying way.
Probably not. It was a so-so book, although my other friends really liked it.
It is becoming a movie with Harrison Ford.
I will probably skipped the remainder of the books.
A very engaging and deep book. Worthy of all the praise its received. I hope the movie adaption stays true to this incredible story.
No I think the audio version was good.
Yes there were certain part where I didnt want to stop listening.
Smart, Awesome, And Witty
Spoiler won't say
The Guy was great!!!! and the Women was ok but kind of annoying how she did everyone but Valentines voice.
Watch This Film!!!!
I am a very picky audible acount user if you saw the amount I tried to return stuff you would believe me that this is a solid book and way more than I was expecting.
Ender's Game is an interesting story about super smart kids in an adult world. I let my teenager listen but not my younger kids. It's not really a children's book. Ender is taken to a battle school where he excels in all the training and has a hard time socially because of it. This is definitely an underdog story. It also raises a lot of ethical questions that are good discussion points. If this were a movie it would probably be rated R because there is a lot of graphic violence, some nudity and some cussing. I believe a movie is being made and I hope they take out the words and nudity because the story is a good story and I think my kids would like to see it.
