    As the bloody Human-Covenant War rages on Halo, the fate of humankind may rest with one warrior, the lone SPARTAN survivor of another legendary battle...the desperate, take-no-prisoners struggle that led humanity to Halo: the fall of the planet Reach. Now, brought to life for the first time, here is the full story of that glorious, doomed conflict.

    Story
    If you could sum up Halo in three words, what would they be?

    Halo can be summed up with the words: vast, intense, and militaristic. This book was great for understanding the vast Halo universe. I've played the games with a certain disregard that Halo was just like any other shooter. I've since played that latest Halo game and was intrigued by its rich history and Master Chief's backstory. This book does not disappoint. The Fall of Reach immerses the listener to the notable figures in the Halo universe and John 117's first encounter with Dr. Halsey.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I particularly enjoyed the part of the book where John 117 reunites with Keyes. Since their first meeting, they have had journeyed military careers in their respective positions.

    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"
    "Never read it, but I'm glad I heard it."

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

    This is a science fiction book through and through. I've been told that this is a great book to read. My problem is that I have a hard time getting into universes that I am unfamiliar with. Which is why it is so hard for me to read fiction of any kind. I downloaded the audiobook thinking it was a way to get into the story with having the time commitment of reading. I'm very happy I did. Immediately, the story takes off and your finding out about a world that is very different from the one we live in. Ender, a young child who had been genetically altered and hand-picked to be the world's greatest general and to defeat the bugger threat. Ender is sent off into battle school and is quickly proving himself. The ending to this story was truly my favorite part, but I won't spoil that for you. It becomes filled with thought provoking insight as to how their world works.
