As I very much enjoyed Ender's Game (even thought it wasn't the type of book I normally pick), I was disappointed in this 2nd book. By itself, it is probably a pretty good book, which is why I rated it as high as a 3. But I found listening to it soon after finishing Ender's Game pretty boring. Save your money. Though I still have about an hour left until the end, alot of the book is near identical to Ender's game from just a bit of a different viewpoint. While some people have complained that it is TOO abridged ... I feel like only the 1st hour (maybe 2) and last is worth calling a new book.
I don't think so. The story seems interesting, but the reader's screaming is driving me crazy. A good choice for Whispersync.
So far, how annoying the 'screaming scenes' were.
Heaven forbid no!
Hoping there aren't TOO many instances where the reader feels the to 'act' instead of READ.
If you are a John Grisham fan you will be sadly disappointed ... unless perhaps you are a football fan. It is rare that I come across a book that I don't finish but getting through this one has been a real challenge. Boring ramblings of aging college jocks about sums it up.
