This is one of my new favorite books. Scott Card puts so many elements into Enders Game that it seems real. I have also read several other of the Ender's Game series books and loved every one. I would recomend this book to anyone! If you have not listened to it or read it...I recommend you get it right now!
Normally I only read non-fiction. I was so hooked on The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches by Robert Stanek that I snatched up Ender's Game as soon as I saw it on my recommended list. I never knew listening to fiction could be so much fun!
Quite simply fantastic, so far the best book I have listened to. I cant believe I missed this book before. Great story with great narration.
I think a certain Harry Potter had his foundings here.
I was apprehensive downloading this type of work, as I usually prefer mysteries, romance, etc. but not science fiction. Based on audible reviews I went with it. I must say I am pleased and suprised. I loved this from beginning to end! Definitely one to download and listen to again and again!
An amazing, amazing book. I would say one of the best sci-fi books ever. A fascinating story that pulls you in and holds you tight. Also an interesting discussion of manipulating people and of gaining power. I would highly recomend this book to anyone who even mildly enjoys sci-fi, and maybe even those who do not. I would also recomend the books that come after this, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. These go in a different direction than Ender's Game, and many people do not enjoy them as much, but I found them to be just as interesting, if for diferent reasons.
I loved this book, and I'm happy I discovered it thanks to Audible. I loved Ender from the very beginning, I loved the story, I loved the narrators and the dramatization. Why not 5 stars then? For two reasons: the fact that the Author could have done a better job in defining the other characters (may be that has been left for the other books in the series?) and that the story, at times, was a little bit too predictable. However, a great book and I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the saga.
