    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.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Serious literature it's not"
    Overall

    Don't be fooled by the other reviews claiming this is serious literature; this is lightweight and formulaic stuff. Still, it rolls along quite nicely and it's a fine drive-time listen. However, grown-ups who were reminded by Margaret Atwood's "Oryx and Crake" how much they liked Sci-Fi as a teenager should look elsewhere.
