All the whining of the original book, with out any of the new creative ideas. Card is doing to Ender walk Lucas did to Anikin. Nothing in this book will surprise you.
This it an exultant patch between Enders game and Speaker For The Dead. Even with the few discrepancies like Coronal Graft living longer than Enders brother Peter. It was very well written as is all the Ender books are. Always thought provoking on the inter workings of peoples minds and how they came to be that way. As always their is a variety that will not disappoint you, you will see people you know in some of his character and you may find one that reminds you of yourself. Be careful you may not like them.
The writer is so great at telling the story and this sequel was so enjoyable. I could not stop listening to it until it was finished! Thank you, OSC, for using your talents for others to enjoy!
With Narrators like Stefan Rudnicki, Scott Brick, and Gabrielle De Cuer its hard not to like listening to the stories as they are read with great passion and move along very nicely. This does a good job of filling in time blanks in the other stories of the Enderverse
Bachelor Chef and Mathematician. I don't bother with books shorter than 20 hours, not worth the effort.
After listening to this installment of the Ender story, I believe that this is one of the better tales. Though at times it is a bit confusing to those of us who have listened to or read the earlier episodes of the Ender series, this book does fill in some of the blanks from the other books.
Orson Scott Card is one of the authors whom I sincerely enjoy. Though he can be a bit preachy at times he does spin imaginative scenes and has obviously thought through MOST of his stories.
An 84 mister Clark, it has a good beat but you just can't dance to it.
For someone who has listened to every single book in the Ender & Bean series I loved this book.
I thought it was great and hope that Orson does more of these 'Ender' spin-offs
I also love the fact that Orson himself 'explains' all his books in the end. It really helps you understand where he is coming from and why he wrote each book
This is a great addition to the Ender books and I highly recommend it if you have enjoyed the other Ender books. The narrator and audio quality seemed identical to the other Ender books. I highly suggest finishing the Shadow series (starting with Ender's Shadow and ending with Shadow of the Giant, I think) before reading this. It isn't required to understand Ender in Exile, but this book would contain some spoilers and some of the impact of significant minor characters would be lost without having finished the Shadow series as this functions partially as a conclusion to the series. At an absolute minimum, I would suggest reading Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow first.
I have been a lover of science fiction all my life. But somehow I missed out on the Ender series. As a result, I had no idea what Ender in Exile was all about -- except that the really good parts were covered in other books. Don't even think about downloading this selection unless you're up to speed on the prior offerings. That would be like starting the Dune series with a book about sand worms.
Great book! Unbelievable the way Card was able to tell this story and keep all of his fact straight with all of the other Ender books out there.
Fun to listen to! This book provides a lot of insight to the overall story of Ender.
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.
