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.
Once again, the seamless and seemingly effortless way in which he writes for so many different characters and gives them different perspectives, emotions, desires, and fears is amazing. well done once again. Highly recommended if you desire more information about post war Ender. Listen to the afterward first though, no spoilers and helps nullify any discrepancy with EG.
Ender in exile is a book that I can listen to over and over and still get something new out of it. it may have a few slow parts but what book or story doesn't. If you are reading this to see if it is worth the purchase my suggestion is yes.
Perfectly narrated, expertly written. This was a joy to hear. I couldn't stop listening once I started, and it seems to me that the story of Ender was made to be heard, to be told around the campfire rather than read in a book. Twelve hours is a steal for a story of this caliber
What is there to say. If you have read Ender's Game you already have an idea of what the story is all about. It is an expanded version of the final chapters of that book. That said, I loved this audiobook, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any of the Ender Wiggins saga. I was riveted by the narrators' outstanding performances. They cost me many hours of much needed sleep, but it was so very worth it. If you liked Ender's Game you will like Ender in Exile.
The complete history that Card continues to develop is addictingly astonishing. Each volume adds more depths and connection and is woven to seamlessly to be mere fiction. It's a history from somewhere.
