it seemed like it was just a "good straightforward book" that you enjoy, but wasn't unpredictable or surprising at all. i enjoyed listening, but it wouldn't make my list of, "hey, you've got to read this!" there's still something missing from this series and i can't put my finger on it.
having said that, i'll definitely listen to the next book in the series when it comes out.
i enjoyed the movie, but i found that there really wasn't much more to the characters in the book than the movie portrayed.
and in addition to no character development, the narrator seemed pretty bored with the story. it's like he was trying to put us to sleep. despite all that, since i liked the genre, i liked it enough to finish.
I don't understand how this only gets a 4.0 from some people! crazy creative and interesting!
the actual writing still feels like OSC, but the imagination put into this book doesn't feel remotely close to the first ender series. it's at the point where despite reading the original and a few of the shadow series books, i'm not even sure i'll listen to book #4. :(
this book has lots of fun references to movies, music, games and movies. but it's a fun listen even without knowing all the refs. if you aren't into computer games, this might not be for you.
the story and characters weren't overly interesting, but the premise was interesting enough to keep it interesting.
it was a lot like the other area 51 Voss, minus that one name character we all love. nonetheless, the backstory was fun to hear. So I was hoping to hear more about the origins of the swarm
I found myself a little bored at times with this and nexus. there is definitely the set up for a third book, but I'm not sure I will listen to it. there were great parts to this book, but there was a lot of flat and boring parts too. I thought this was going to be a book that I enjoyed re-listening to, but I won't be.
nonetheless, it is a very interesting concept.
this is a great sci-fi book with some action and fun characters. it kept me interested in finding out what happens next throughout the book.
in addition to the book being fun, it presents a question of what would we do if we (humans) had this technology. i can't wait to read the sequel.
if this book reminds me of influx, daemon and freedom TM. (highly recommended.)
... and then it seems the editor took a break halfway through. i really liked the ideas in this book and it had some very creative ideas, but then it becomes hard to follow because it jumps around a bit too much. this made the book lose some of its steam. still, it's definitely worth a listen despite this.
