I wasn't expecting a lot from this one for some reason and just wanted something different after doing te Ender's Game Trilogy. This was a pleasant surprise. Great Historical backstory, good character's and well read. I will purchase more will adams in the future.
If you like Clive Cussler because of the historical aspects more than the action itself, you will like this book. It has action, but more history. I actually learned a lot about macedonia that I did not know.
I decided to give EG a try and was amazed how solid the story was. You are rooting for Ender from the get go and I found myself amazed that I had never heard of Ender prior to looking for something new on Audible. It has something for everyone, it's action packed while being introspective.
If there was one audibook that I would recommend to someone, this would be it.
By far more a philisphicol book than Speaker and obviously way more than Ender's Game.
I actually skipped several chapters and felt like I didn't miss much. I suggest hiring asian actors for the asian roles, the accents were tough to listen to and the voice of the Hive was just weird (almost silly).
A good conclusion to the trilogy, but continues the departure from action as Speaker did when compared to EG. But it was worth it to know what happened to good old Ender.
It's more introspective than ender's game. It's not the "action" story that EG is, however it moves a long well and Card does a great job with the characters. I enjoy the reader who does Ender, but they need some more variation with the female roles.
Story is good, but if you like EG for the action you are not going to get it in Speaker.
Martin does a great job of developing characters at a timely pace and not getting bogged down in particular storylines. Great pace. Dotrice is awesome. I put off listening for several months not sure of enduring the length. But it is a no brainer purchase.
