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.
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.
Renewed love for the series! Also would strongly encourage readers to read the book of short stories released before this book. Gave a lot more insight into the parents.
A book addict just listening my way through work and graduate school.
I like this book much better than the one that comes just before it. There are still a few problems occasionally with the audio, but nothing that I remember being too distracting. Another great book by Orson Scott Card!
Ive been listening to these books in the order they were printed and the series just keeps getting better and better. At first I didnt know if I would enjoy the story without Ender in it, especially if it focused on Peter, but Scott makes you live all his characters. Powerful ending to the current set of books. I will miss these characters greatly. Sad the ride is over, but wouldnt want to miss it for anything. Dont miss this one!!!
