This is an awsome companion book to the entire enderverse story. It fills a very important gap that the enders game series skipped but that had a very large impact on ender and valentines decision process for the future. Much of enders life was based on what happened here and is the reason he wanted a home so badly.
I agree this book addresses loose ends from other related books, but it is rather slow and a bit tedious. I found the actual performances on the audio book to be less impressive than other titles I have listened to, and a spoken version of futuristic email addresses (for example) just sounds silly.
I love how this book (even though it replaces a chapter of enders game) takes on and finished up left off inqiries. like what happened to graff? the last delphici child and so forth. a great addition to enders universe!!!
I didn't thought it can get better than the first one, but I was wrong. While in the first I felt gollowi
G the fight of a boy, in this one I forgot about the kid Ender and listened to the adult Andrew telling about his views, ways, believes and fights with a mich more mature takeover of the history.
I absolutely enjoyed the performance which was matching the one of the play Ender's game and especially Graff's and Valentine's voices.
Well done and totally worth it!
I have listened to the Ender series many times and never get tired of Card's writing or the audible production. Great choice of voices.
I came from the movie Ender's Game to hear it spoken and I have grown to love Orson's style and how he takes us along his adventure in the universe of so many people. my next listen is Shadows of The Giant! Thank you for these books.
