    The Sound and the Echoes is a high-concept, fantasy adventure for middle grade and young adult listeners. Imagine that everyone around you has a mirror image living somewhere else. Your world is like a sound, which produced that other world of echoes. And in this land men are governed by a terrible law-no Echo is allowed to live after his Sound dies. One Sound especially must die. The Prince's Sound. The Fate Sealers and Fortune Tellers will make sure of that!

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I honestly didn't know if I could finish the book. I have listened to hundreds of books and can think of less than 5 that I could not finish. I pick books many times based so much on the reviews of other audible readers (which I find very helpful). I did not remember reading about the narrator in the reviews before purchasing this book and selected it for me and my daughter. It is almost painful to listen to as almost every single sentence is broken into a sing song phrases of 3-5 words each. By the way, I noticed that anyone that noted that in the reviews has like "1 out of 10 people find it helpful", etc... which I find rather interesting. THANK YOU to those that post HONEST opinions. Unfortunately, this narrator ruined the story for me. So much so that I had to come back to Audible to read the reviews and see if this was just me or if I was crazy. I guess I agree with the "1 out of 14 or so" reviewers that rated those readers as helpful as they tried their best to warn me. Otherwise, his CHARACTER voices are good.

    Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults.

    Would you listen to Xenocide again? Why?

    Yes. It was an interesting read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Xenocide?

    It started out with new characters (not in book 1 or 2) which quickly drew me into this part of the story. The reader for that part in particular was fantastic (complete with chinese accent).


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    There were multiple narrators and they all were well suited for their parts in the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A consistent complete follow up to the Ender sage.
