I think Ender's Game will always be OSC best..both book, and audible performance. Ender's Shadow was great also, and all the remaining 'Ender' series were very good. This one really hooks you in from the start and keeps your interest. I had read the book before listening and enjoyed it, and was looking forward to reading the rest of this series by OSC, and was surprised to see this available so soon. I think it's his best since the original Ender book. I almost always like multiple performer books better than single narrated ones. That's my take on it ...enjoy!
Great all the way through to the last chapter, then its cut short, like the author forgot to include the last chaper. Infact it could have had a few more chapters. Waist of time, and frankly, it pissed me off.
I ended this book wanting more.....thats the best feeling. As long as the author comes out with another.
I am a small business owner, writer and frequent traveler. Audio books are my constant companions
This is part of a great story. It starts slow and leads right up to the very edge of a great chasm. Then, it pushes you in turns out the lights and goes home. Would that Mr. Card finished the story or at least found a better stopping point, the reader would be satisfied. As it is, I felt as if I was waiting for the ending to hit the printer. The performances on all Mr. Cards books are excellent.
Excellent book of urban fantasy. As always, from OSC, a thick and intricate plot with deep characters and an exciting story.
this is a book to read. i almost always enjoy reading his books. the system of magic in this world is interesting. though i like the whole story, Danny's behavours are a bit irritating to me. Wad's side got more attention than of Danny and i would like to read more of his. i look forward to reading a sequence soon.
This is a well written, fun and thoughtful book from Orson Scott Card. I enjoyed it and recommend it for anyone 10 through adult.
I have been through this book twice. The story is an engaging blend of mythology and modern times, and Card's ability to weave a new world and craft realistic and magnetic characters is richly satisfying.
Excellent book. Some minor discrepancies that don’t influence the story much, which is compelling and entertaining. The characters are lively and likeable. It reminds me a bit of another excellent series namely the “Dark Sword” by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Good narrators. Definitively worth reading/hearing. Can’t wait for the sequel.
This book started out extremely confusing, and then, just as it starts to sort out and get interesting, it turns completely boring. I don't even have a desire to finish it. The characters are not believable, and completely uninteresting, and at this point, I don't really care to listen to more hours of some stupid kid who steals and robs.
