This whole series is absolutely fantastic! I have now heard all the Ender books available on Audible and can't wait for more.
As a died in the wool espionage novel reader this book and its summary would never have intrigued me. Having read nothing but Ludlum, Clancy, Littel, Koontz and other espionage/mystery authors over the past year or two I decided to try something new. Relying on best seller lists and reader reviews the high rating of this virtually jumped from the page. Why not take a plunge? This was simply one of the best investments I have made! Running back to get more in this series.
Great use of different readers to adequately project the characters (always hate when one reader tries to do all of the characters including characters of the opposite sex). Story development thorough and intriguing. Never lost my interest. Couldn't wait to get back to it.
Outstanding work. Its not a 4.7, 4.8 or 4.9, a full 5.0!
Man - I am having a great time with audible.com and my OTIS thingy. I have listened to about 10 books so far during commutes and only one was a stinker. Enders Game is wonderful, and I don't really dig Science Fiction much any more. I did as a kid, but now I am really into political intrigue and legal intrigue novels. This book is great and you will enjoy it.
This book grabbed me right away. Very entertaining. The only problem is that Audible doesn't carry the 3rd or 4th books in the series. Speaker for the Dead is a must read after Ender's Game. Then you are left with buying paper books for the rest of the series.
I'm not a big fan of most of Orscon Scott Card's books, but this one is a real gem. Much better than anything else that I've read. If you like Sci-Fi, and you like "prodigal son" types of stories, then this is your book!
This is now high on my list of all time favorite books. The plot is very well done and the characters are engaging. It kept my attention throughout and rewarded me at the end with a very thought provoking ending. An intelligently written book. (Well read, too).
Enders Game, a story that makes you cuss when your batteries die, or some other interfearence pushs your concentration elsewhere. Makes you ready for the real story which is Speaker for the dead. Ender Wiggins and family will entertain you.
