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.
Bean is beyond what a fictional character can be, elevated by the words of Orson Scott Card into a life of nobility. There are few characters which transcend the boundaries of the page to emerge in the mind of the reader so alive, but Bean does. Mr Card will not read this, but I must say thank you to him for such a wonderful journey through such a brilliantly written series. The vocal talents which brought this to life, did so with the skills of true artists.
There were 2 points in the story that 2 voices overlapped each other reading the same passage but clearly unintentional. Don't remember where exactly, but both in the audiobook's chapter 10.
I wouldn't call this a bad book, because it was interesting to see what happens to all the characters. It just didn't have the exciting build ups and payoffs of the others.
This book was an amazing read (or listen in this case). It is a very realistic and entertaining book that I would recommend to readers of all cultures and ages, provided that they have a large vocabulary or a dictionary.
One of my favorite writings by Orson Scott Card.
A truly refreshing book to have listened to. The readers are all top notch
There were a couple times where the audio overlapped. It wasn't too bad that u couldn't understand what was being said, but it did interrupt the visual of the store by making u concentrate on the twin audio. Overall the the book was good. I found a few parts were dragged out & became a lil frustrated to get the story moving along. However, it was a good listen & I enjoyed it.
