    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Overall

    I don't usually read sci-fi and maybe this is why if this is supposed to be one of the best of all time. It was boring and more than contrived. I never really cared about any of the characters and couldn't stand listening to the voice of Val, Ender's sister, with it's constant mournful droning and sounds of lament. If she sighed one more time I would have puked.

    The surprise was that you were at the end and didn't even know it but it came none too soon.

    Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

    Karen says: "Clever and interesting."
    "Exceptional"
    Overall

    This was the first book I had listened to and withheld my review until I heard at least one other. I can now say the experience was totally enjoyable and highly recommend this book. I could relate to the main character and although the situation was somewhat unbelievable, it was not hard to get past the premise and become involved in the situation. A real "page turner".

    Barbara Holloway has a reputation for taking on the toughest cases - and winning them. But this time she's up against an unbeatable opponent - her father, the lawyer who taught her all she knows.

    Reed says: "Better than the first"
    "Contrived Plot"
    Overall

    I listeened through the whole book but really had a hard time geting involved until 2/3 of the way through. And the ending was equally disappointing. Many of the characters were two-dimensional. To paraphrase the movie "Amadeus", there were too many words. Perhaps the unabridged version would have been better for me.
