    Best selling SF author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender's Earth.

    Earth and its society have been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics. The unity forced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would say that listening was time well spent. But not because the book was great or greatly interesting. I saw it as merely a stepping stone to get to the next book in the Ender's Shadow series. It was a HUGE stretch of my imagination to relate to the characters in this book. The obsession with procreation is thrown at the reader. It almost made me embarassed just to listen to the endless talk of babies. I understand that due to the nature of Bean's condition, his life is a bit rushed, however, I couldn't quite digest how quickly his and Petra's relationship progressed. It almost ruined the story for me. The only break from it is the political and military maneuvering, which bored me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Orson Scott Card again?

    Yes, I would listen to Card again. I am very interested in the Enderverse and want to see how everything pans out. I hope my disinterest in this book doesn't interfere with the rest of the series.


    Did David Birney and Stefan Rudnicki do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narration is good and that's a welcome relief! The mispronunciations and crazy editing heard in the previous book, Shadow of the Hegemon, are absent in Shadow Puppets.
