Ender Wiggin. Fascinating transformation from quiet genius to Battle Commander
The battle room
This book has a reserved spot on my ipod. I can listen to this book any time. The performance is excellent.
I enjoy, epic and modern fantasy, science fiction, business, historical mystery, and technology books. Fav. series: Game of Thrones, Vampire Earth, Dresden, Iron Druid, Falco mysteries, Chris Anderson titles, Peaceful Warrior, and the Way of Kings (and more, of course;)
A superb story about a boy who is manipulated/ guided by the adults around him into being (hopefully) the savior of the planet from an invading race of aliens. Earth has twice been invaded and barely survived, and now is training its youth to form the best gallactic battle force it can to defend against a third attack. Ender is tagged as the future general, and the story poses some interesting questions about the limits to the price victory, and about knowing your enemy.
Great character development, and an exciting story for teens and adults alike. The narration cast is fantastic, and bring real depth to the story. This is a story that I think is better narrated, than on the page. I strongly recommend Ender's Shadow next.
I really enjoyed the occasional in character first person narrations we got to hear from Graff and some of the other teachers and Fleet personnel.
A book I've enjoyed for years and keep getting out again, this was a great way to enjoy it another time, and perfect for a long road trip.
It was fun remembering all the characters and meeting them again as Ender does.
Humanity needs its Hero for the Third Bugger War
Altough this is not a new book, the plot is definitely actual. Loved the caracter development and the reading was amazing. Great voices.
The most enjoyable feature of this recording is the cast of voices that add a dramatic effect to the listening that is far beyond the normal and spectacular in execution.
Certian characteristics about Ender Wiggins' personality come to the story for a pivitol understanding of why he succeeds in this unique and vital mission.
Absolutely -- it is spellbinding.
The very cool plot twist.
I agree with the author in that this was a story best done as an audio book.
dyslexics with a heightened power of listening
The arthur claims that his writing style is made to be listened to, and oh baby was he right! I would have to say that the audio version was better then the print. Plus my reading is terrible so I alway think the print is less appealing.
The boys thought process. ( Sherlock Holmes ish ) I spent the whole week over annualizing everything.
These two know how to narrate, and in my opinion the most importent part is the narraters. they were fantastic and did a great job with al the voices and expressions.
The Enemy's Gate Is Down ( cope out there is already a movie :P )
If you like this book an you will, you need to check out Enders Shadow, I would say even better. You might be asking yourself, why would i wanna "read" a book that is in the same timeline and repets some of the same story plots. well I "read" both in the same week and the small amount of repetition is necessary and not annoying.
I'm late to the game reading this series. A friend's son lent them to me and I only needed the first one to tell me I wanted to own them all. I'm now in the middle of the Shadow series which is equally good. The performances are easily the best of any series. These narrators are true professionals.
I did not really have a favorite.
They are absolutely the best! There are no better!
Absolutely, but impossible to do. I listen on my to and from commutes. Many nights I wished I had the paper copies.
I'm glad to have The Shadow Series to continue this amazing story!
