Loved every minute of this. The type of books i like take you away from 'normal' life (why do i want to read about normal life when i can live it?). This is total escapism. multiple readers kept the pace enjoyable. Would definaltly recommend to any sci-fi buffs out there.
I read this book ten years ago to the month, I absolutly loved it. What a great lesson on leadership and will power. Listening to it even made it better!
If you've ever read the book you'll know what to expect from this recording. My comments are more about the voice production. For the most part these are good, though some of the better voices seen underused. However, the woman who reads the part of Valetine is terrible, she removes all sense of caring from the role. Fortunately in this book this is a minor role, I just hope Audible never use her again as I would have to avoid her.
This book has the best story I have heard thus far. The author has my attention and I will look for his books from now on. The audible version of this story was one of the best performances I have listened to up to now. With an excellent story with the excellent reading made it hard to stop listening and I was always anxious to get back to the story as soon as possible. It is not as predictable as most authors and this helped the excitement even more. I would recommend this and suggest it as a must for anyone that enjoys audible scifi.
I totally got into this book. This is a great listen from begining to end. I have listened to quite a few audio books, and this is one that I recommend to everyone.
I fell in love with orson scott card when I read Wyrms. For a long time that was my favorite all-time book... Then I read enders game, pure genius.
Ender's Game is one of the most phenomenal books of the sci-fi genre. You will fall in love with Ender, ache when he aches, laugh when he laughs, and learn to share his terrible burden. I read this first, and then when I saw it offered on Audible, bought immediately. The only problem I have with this version is the narrator. Ender is six when the book begins and there is a lot of inner monologue - the reader has a very deep voice and it is hard to reconcile the child's words with the adult voice. It shouldn't keep anyone from buying this book, but it is my one disapointment. The whole series is on audible now. Just type in 'Ender's Game' and you should get the other titles in the series. Enjoy.
I was told to check out this book by person after person around me. I finally made the decision to pick it up and it is a decision I will not regret.
It is well narrated, and greatly written. From the very beginning you become a fan of Ender, and cheerleader in his war against the buggers. It is exiting and very refreshing, and original.
