    The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.

    Story
    (1206)

    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

    What did you love best about Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 - 5)?

    Story and characters drew me into the story quickly


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Minnie Goode?

    Anyone but Minnie.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions.


    Any additional comments?

    I hated the narrator, i felt like her performance of the voices made the story come across as an infantile childs story and distracted from the story line.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    finished the story


    What about Tom Weiner’s performance did you like?

    Tom was great, he has a great voice


    Was The Cat Who Walks through Walls worth the listening time?

    no it was a waste


    Any additional comments?

    Heinlein seemed to start out with a purpose and then left off the last half of the book. Set the reader up for a sequel but never delivered. Lost his mind, died?
