If you enjoyed Ender's Game - give this one a miss - awful plot and none of the charm of the original - laughably bad in places - a great shame.
Another great chapter in the Ender seres. You find out what happens to Ender after his incounter at command school, and as a young man he finaly finds a place for him and the "Buggers".
I like that you got to see the other side of Ender and how he has taken control of his life over the last 3000 years and pretty much accepted who he was is and become.
Shorten it up a lot
It inspired me not to get the next one. especially after reading the other reviews. It's like a waterfall and it has hit the bottom for me.
Can I get my money back? This has to be the WORST book I have listened to EVER!
First you need to come down off of the high of Ender's Game. it might be a shocker to see what kind of story Speaker of the Dead turns out to be. A slow story about family, religion and politics across the vast Enderverse.
It was a terrible decision of the director to have so many different narrators for this audiobook. It is totally irritating and distracting. What's worse, one of the women's voices is unbearably bad, with her constant soothing, longing, whining tone for everything she says, like everything was a cheesy love letter. I can't understand how any director in his/her right mind can cast a narrator like that.
i have read other books in the series, enders games was the only one i liked
the raspy voice was too much for the younger people in the series
i would have not passed it to the publisher
read enders game
i love storys about magic with adult humor in the storys like Piers Anthony and Orson Scott Card i also like some sci-fi storys. The storys i like best is : On a Pale Horse, The Lost Gate, Ender's Game, Split Infinity. i do not like short storys.
i liked enders game but this was boreing from start to end.
vary little to like here for me.
nothing like enders game. so if your hopeing for it to be anything like enders game forget that. i cant beleave there was so miny that did like it.
but to each there own. but if you get it and get bored dont say you was not warned.
if you can find out what others liked about it you may find you will like it to.
but if you bore easy dont bother.
This was a complete waste of time. It should have been filed under philosophy or psychology, not sci-fi. The fact that it takes place on a different planet and deals with talking pigs doesn't make it good, interesting or sci-fi. Enders game was pretty good, this is just boring.
The narrators of this book do a fantastic job of making the characters come to life. The different voices bring up the story and interaction better than a sole narrator. This book was my favorite of the Ender's game series. This book really has the ability to capture you and take you into the universe where Earth and humanity is not the central theme; even though, they are the central players.
