I am an OTR truck driver. My opinion is if its worth listening to all the way thru once then listen twice. The miles just disappear.
I would not know I did not read the print version
Of course ender is the one character who wins everyone heart but Petra is my favorite because she needs everyone to believe she is so tough and she really has a heart of gold.
my favorite scene is when Ender enters the shuttle to go to battle school.
At almost the end of the book when Ender tells his crew that he no longer wants to be their commander.
Listening to this one book turned three teenage boys, my son, my newphew and a co workers son into avid listeners.
I would definitely listen to Ender's Game again sometime. The voice acting on this edition is excellent. The story is compelling to all ages.
Ender's Game is all memorable! The setting Card creates, the characters, the events that lead to the climax of the story. All are rare and wonderful!
The main readers cause the characters to come alive and help the listener get the full experience of the story.
A Little Child Shall Lead Them
Rarely do I feel a book is a must read. This is one!
Brilliant, space, reality
This is not a normal story. No love story and not trying to be smart. It is a smart book! I think it is smart by making the characters do really smart things but no unrealistic and it gives the readers full information. Everything becomes very clean simple and elegant. It doesn't try to complicate anything.
They read the book in a way that made you think about the story and not that someone was reading. No anoying voices and all was very clear.
The final test and one particular moment: when main character (Ender) fought a bully without confronting him. I thought that was really smart and a fantastic way of dealing with the situation.
good phenom story with nice twist at the end. enoyed most of the book and fighting scenes but did think the "speaking to the dead" ending was a little out there. If you can accept some wierdness its a cool read.
I've already purchased this as a gift for one friend and recommended it to another. The production is very well done but the story is superb.
The character development and storyline combined with the great production led to fantastic mental imagery.
I laughed out loud a couple of time, winced often, and even cheered once.
Highly recommend. It's a great listen.
great story line
went well with story
it will be hard to find another read as good as this one...
haven't finished this book on audio yet, but it follows the actual book that I can easily say this book is wonderful and I understand why the Marines encourage their personnel to read it. driving for long distances makes it hard to read sometimes and being able to hear this book on audible is great. the narrators are amazing and bring the story to life without making it into a movie (which I would go see if they did).
I read this series when I was 11 years old and I loved it and I am glad that I discovered this series again. I can see why Ender's Game won Nebula and Hugo Awards, the story shows that how can humanity can lose it moral compass when it threaten. (the end justified the mean)
This is easily one of my favorite reads. I read it then bought the audio book
And the performances were great. I've listen to this book countless times and I never get tired of it. Enders wiggins carries the weight of human salvation on his shoulders and you can't help but feel for him as he is pushed beyond the limits of a normal person, only he is just a child but he never is given the chance to be one. This book does not disappoint and I can't recommend it enough!
I don't know who the female narrator is who begins reading the Valentine scenes in Part 1 (Kate Reading, maybe?), but all I can say is, thank goodness I have a Kindle. I love this book, and am loathe to ruin it with her whiney, melodramatic, very un-Valentine portrayal. Which is unfortunate, because the other dramatized narration by Rudnicki and Ellison is fantastic and really pulled me into this exciting story.
