I enjoyed this book.. It has a lot of great material discussing Enders world after the Games..
It grate tie in to speaker of the dead and the after accounts of Enders Game. It has some moments that were drawn out but really gets into how the characters reconnect and grow.
Well some of the subject was changed to fit the book from Enders Game to this as for the age of Ender on the Colony when he found the Hive queen. Just a few subtle changes..
Parts of it did. I found some areas funny and some very interesting..
Very worth the time..Must read after Enders Game
Listening to Ender in Exile was a pure enjoyment as we begin to see Andrew emerge. The things left unsaid until the story requires that the plot was far more complicated than it first appears. What fun to see the back story appear with such clear and final end to such posers as Morgan and Dorabella. Just that one portion would be reason enough to re read this book.
My favorite overall is Ender but I more than enjoyed Graff's development. To be able to "see" who he has become and being fallible is touching. Andrew's parents in this installment are my favorites. Children beware parents may be more than you realize.;)
This book made me both laugh and cry.
Great Sci-fi. Describes the aftermath of "Ender's Game" from Andrew "Ender" Wiggin's perspective. Wrapped in the old story: soldier finishes his duty and goes home...but Ender can't go home, so what does he do? Having read some of the pre/sequels, I can begin to see the author setting up future events that approach Ender's concern with genocide question of "Ender's Game." Additionally, this book seems to resolve some issues with Bean's life. Fascinating and twisty, can't wait for my next download/listen.
It's a Communication Thing
In this book is the authors fills in some of the gaps while Ender progresses towards the Speaker for the Dead segment in the series. I have not listened to speaker for the dead yet and am looking forward to it. I had only listened to the first book in the Enders Shadow series and this book threw in a few spoilers for future books in that series. Nothing big but it will take a few of the suppresses out. I am now going back to listen to the rest of the Enders Shadow series before I move on to Speaker for the Dead.
Ender really grows up in this book, and so does Graff. There were other stand out characters as well but I don't want to give anything up.
The performance of this book was well done. The diverse cast made it easy to follow the character separation.
This book really opens up the character of ender as he matures.
The varying narrators made it quite fun to listen to.
Looking ahead to the upcoming movie that has the entire Ender series to use for source material, I thought it would be worth my time to read the immediate sequel to "Ender's Game" and see if I could fill in a few gaps of what I know happened to Ender between that book and "Speaker for the Dead." As a fan of the original books and Card I dove in with enthusiasm. Sadly, the book did not meet expectations. I learned little more of Ender's life than what I'd already gleaned from the original books and common sense. While the e-mail conversations at the beginning of each chapter are interesting, the rest of the book tires under the weight of Card talking at length about what people are thinking, why they are thinking it and what their intentions are as if I couldn't figure it out on my own. It drags the pace of the novel to a staggering crawl. The challenges Ender face in each chapter pale miserably in comparison to the other books, and I found myself bored by the third Act to the point I didn't care much any more. I already knew what would happen next. Stefan Rudnicki remains the king of science fiction audiobooks, and his fellow cast helped shape an uninteresting tale into an audio play that made my time worthwhile. If you're a fan of the Enderverse, by all means dive in. If you're looking for action, stick to the Shadow series. My best suggestion is to skip this one and just re-read the original series again and then enjoy the movie.
Be warned not to read this book before the first four Shadow books, it continues some storylines from those books, and therefore has major spoilers. It can certainly be read before or after the Speaker books. I very much enjoyed this interim story in the Ender saga, and recommend it. It would be nice if this producer would clean up and update the other audiobooks in this series. (Well, Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow were fine, but Speaker for the Dead and Shadow of the Hegemon were poorly produced, unfortunately.)
Great book in the Ender series. Should be read between Ender's game and the Speaker for the dead.
Excellent team throughout the Ender series.
READ THIS SECOND IN THE ENDER SERIES.
I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.
This was an enjoyable reminiscence into the Ender Wiggins story. This book fills in the details immediately after Ender ended the Bugger War.
Although written years after the original Ender's Game and even Speaker for the Dead, etc. the rest in the series, this book is a nice fit. I'm happy that the author chose to revisit this part of Ender's life. It wasn't just an author looking to rehash an old hero, you can tell that Orson Scott Card put a lot of thought into this work and I for one thank him for it.
I would easily recommend this book to anyone, provided they read Ender's Game first. (with 'read' in both the present and past tense - sorry for the pun, I couldn't resist.)
