    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.

    "An instant classic!"

    This should be required reading in AP English courses, if Asimov and Bradbury fit in, so does Card! I will re-read and re-listen for your years to come. This goes for the entire series. Card is awesome and the readers are very very good!

    An island born in fire and thunder when the Earth was young is the setting for this adventure with Jon Michaels and his marine-biologist mother. Join Jon as he explores the incredible barrier reef surrounding Moratonga. He feeds an octopus, encounters sharks, and dives to one of the strangest and most dangerous places on the planet: 20,000 feet down to hydrothermal vents, a world of black-smokers, huge tubeworms, and creatures who live without ever seeing the light of the sun.

    My 5 year old son goes to bed to this book almost daily! Sound effects are great and the narration is good. A bit short but overall it's like taking a trip under water!

    Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step's new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and 8-year-old Stevie's school is worse. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers' concern turns to terror.

    Overall

    I can care less about religion and what not since I'm an agnostic but I do love a great story. I loved the Ender's series so i picked this one up on audible. I also picked it because I love how the author narrates along with the rest of the Ender's cast. Anyway, it is different...it can drag at some points...but boy did I get slammed in the face with the ending. So much that I couldn't stop thinking about it for days. Even now i get goose bumps when i see the title or someone reminds of the book. Check it out for yourself.
