    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"
    "Love the story, but the reader isn't great"
    Overall

    This is one of my all-time favorite books. It is one of my "comfort" books - I can pick it up and just read from any point when I want a break from things. So I was really excited to be able to have it on my iPod. The reader of this edition has very odd speech patterns - some sentences become hurried, others drag out. It doesn't seem to make sense in context of what is being said, either. I'm still happy to have it, but I wish they had picked a different reader, or had a better director. Also, the fact that it is an older man with such a deep voice seems incongruent (to me) given how much of the story is 6-12 year-old children talking.
