Yes, he likes to leave story lines hanging so I want to find out what happens.
The female performers have a drawn-out airy quality to their voices, often annoying. The performer who reads Ender's parts has a mechanical voice, but still my favorite of all.
Orson Scott Card churns out book after book. This one was written to cover up what he had messed up in the story line. He mentions in his interview he does not re-read his material to make sure the story line makes sense. He will however, have you pay another $25 or so to get the picture straight. Not cool.
I may have no idea what the question actually is but I'm still positive the answer is "42"
I would recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the Ender series. It Could still be a good story for someone else but you would be missing so much back story that I think the full impact of the book would be kinda lost.
Over all I did like this book, and for Ender fans its def a 4 star book. Though I think that a non Ender fan or someone that hasn't read atleast Ender's Game might rate it lower.
The story and the characters were true to Ender's Game. I love to read anything in the Enderverse and Card does an excellent job in this book.
Just like all the rest, the conflicts and interactions between characters are phenomenal.
The narration was superb.
Ender can't be matched.
I felt like this was written just to "fill in" and tie up loose ends, too many threads of story, not enough single main plot/conflict. I was disappointed.
Tell us about yourself! Retired School Principal and love mysteries, thrillers, and science fiction print and audio books.
Fantastic, Fun, Engaging
I love all the areas where the reader can get into Ender's mind and how he plays situations and outwits others.
Clear voice with proper amount of excitement and enthusiasm
Yes, yes, yes,........ Never wanted to stop when I got to work or home. I listened to this book during my daily commute to work. Couldn't wait to get back into the car to listen.
Nicely fills in the some blanks between other Ender stories. The pace is a little slow sometimes but worth listening to. If you're not an Ender fan, don't bother.
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
