It is a violent book and Finn is a monster. But the book reads like real life in a time when life was cheap and injustice was common place. You cannot really look at Finn through the prism of modern life or "enlightened" sensibilities. I think it was this kind of monster that Twain wanted expose to the public to show it for what it was.
This is a well written, well read story that keeps you interested 'till the end.
Does anyone tell a story that can be told in one book anymore?
Larry and Jerry built a believable alien race and a believable human reaction to them. Well written and well read
I really enjoyed this book. The jumps from present time to reminiscing about his past took getting used to, but when you realize its an old man telling the story of his past, it is easy to understand. It moved well and the characters were people you could empathize with.
Speculative fiction, classic romance, historical novel. Its got it all and Todd McLaren could make a laundry list sound good.
Its a very REAL book. you get to know and care about the windup girl and her plight. you can almost smell the slums and factories. I will listen to this again real soon, just to get the stuff I missed.
this is how audible books are to be done. it doesn't get better than this
I couldn't finish the book. I wouldn't have downloaded the book if I had heard the reader do a female voice first. he just breaks into a falsetto that sounds silly. I stopped before I heard him do Honor with that voice.
what a waste
I love reading and listening to the classics of the 19th century because I love the english of that era.
This story feels like a classic. Its hard to shut off and I love the characters.
Scott Brick could read a shopping list and make it sound good
I haven't finished yet, but I know that this will stand as one of the best recorded books I have ever listened to. I've been a member for years and have hundreds of titles. The different voices and the production quality make it easy and compelling to listen to.
There is something that most educators do not understand and that is how a gifted child's mind works. Mr. Card does. Many gifted children have read this book and agree. My own gifted child read it when he was ten and feels like he knows Ender. He identifies with Ender like no other fictional character.
