    At Battle School, there is only one purpose, only one curriculum: the strategy and tactics of war. The children are drawn from all nations, all races, all religions. There is no room for cultural differences, no room for religious observances, and certainly no room for Santa Claus.

    Jonathon says: "not bad no good either"
    "A War of Gifts is an excelent surprise!"

    Would you listen to A War of Gifts again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this story again. I suggest that you listen to Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow and then A War of Gifts. It is an extra story that adds details to the lives of the battle school brats. I love the different points of view and hearing more about the other children who grew up with Ender and Bean. It is a great adventure!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A War of Gifts?

    This is yet again another point of view of Ender's unforgettable personality.


    What about Scott Brick and Stefan Rudnicki ???s performance did you like?

    The voices are great and always fit what is going on and really express the feelings and emotions that make this such a great story.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    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.

    "What a Great series! I love the Ender Books!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! The book is great and the readers put so much into their reading that all the characters come to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Everyone comes to life in this book.


    What about Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ???s performance did you like?

    What great voices! I love the expression and emotions that they put into their reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! As soon as I listened to this book I had to get all the rest of the books in the series and listen to them too!


    Any additional comments?

    I would read these books in this order Ender???s Game, Ender???s Shadow, A War of Gifts. From here the books branch off and follow Ender and Bean on their separate paths. You follow Ender in Speaker of the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. The books then switch to Bean and the others with Shadow of the Hegemon, Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant, Ender in Exile, Shadows in Flight, and Shadows in flight. There is also First Meetings, which is a group of short stories that add depth and more details to the Ender World.
