Orson Scott Card is firmly one of the 10 greatest Sci-FI authors that has ever lived and everyone of the Ender series books are just masterpieces worth being read and in this case listened too repeatedly.
If you are looking for a great audio books to listen too this should be in your top 15 for Sci-Fi. If you have never had the pleasure of experiencing Ender's universe you have my sympathies for your loss and jealously as you get to experience it unfold for the first time. ENJOY!!!!
i thought the hole ender plot had to run dry sooner than later, so i had low expectations for this book, i was wrong. its one of my fav in the series. it is much more on the political side then the others, but i liked that. very inteligent. i listened to it twice in one month just to make sure that i got in all the details. and i will probibly listen to it again. the naration is very well done as well.
A beautiful and tragic tale that wraps through political mystery and intrigue w/in the confounds of science. This is a work of OSC that will be remembered as a marquee experience in the genree.
this audiobook was an awesome finish to this awesome series. I have enjoyed this series immensely and inbite you to enjoy it as welll.

It's hard to write a cogent review of this book because it's really just a 'tweener between Shadow Puppets and Shadow in Flight. In this one the continual reminders that Bean is dying are annoying. Interesting insight on Islam (from a Mormon?) As are the continual search for Bean's babies...as if OSC couldn't loose one and then have him/her resurrected in the next book? The geopolitical conflicts were interesting and you have to wonder where OSC obtained those ideas? This completes the "Shadow" series for me...read them all. Liked the first one best.
This is Orson Scott Card at his best. Great story arc and complex characters without the overly simplistic plot devices of alien invasion or super genius pathological killer antagonist.
