    Best selling SF author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender's Earth.

    Earth and its society have been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics. The unity forced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School.

    "Anti-Gay Marriage Propaganda"
    Overall

    This is my seventh book in the Ender saga (Speaker for the Dead is my favorite) and although I haven't loved all of them, this book is by far the worst. I don't believe in judging works based on the author's belief but this book just seems like a platform for Orson Scott Card to advertise the Mormon Church. He so vehemently argues that marriage is only between a man and a women and that having children is the most important thing in life. Shadow Puppets does not fit gracefully into the series and this book is barely sci-fiction. Card is an activist for the prevention of same-sex marriage. There would be no reason for me to know that if his writing in this book didn't prompt me to look it up.

    Thirteen-year-old Lizzie Hood and her next-door neighbor Evie Verver are inseparable, best friends who swap clothes, bathing suits, and field-hockey sticks and between whom—presumably—there are no secrets. Then one afternoon, Evie disappears, and as a rabid, giddy panic spreads through the balmy suburban community, everyone turns to Lizzie for answers. Was Evie unhappy, troubled, or upset? Had she mentioned being followed? Would she have gotten into the car of a stranger?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is literally the worst book I have ever listened to. I do not recommend it to anyone and I will never recommend it to anyone. It was absolutely awful. DO NOT PURCHASE!!! I AM SO SERIOUS, IT IS TERRIBLE!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing by this author ever again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It wasn't really the narrator's fault the book was just so bad.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The End of Everything?

    This isn't a question I can answer because I never would have allowed this to be published.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot stress enough how horrid this book was.
