  • A War of Gifts: An Ender Story

    Story
    (405)

    At Battle School, there is only one purpose, only one curriculum: the strategy and tactics of war. The children are drawn from all nations, all races, all religions. There is no room for cultural differences, no room for religious observances, and certainly no room for Santa Claus.

    Overall

    It is an ok short story, to much of a religious overtone. Doesn't really add anything to the enderverse. First Meetings only adds a bit this ads nothing to the overall story of ender. just a side note more then anything, waste of a credit.

    Ex-fighter pilot Cowboy, "hardwired" via skull sockets directly to his lethal electronic hardware, teams up with Sarah, an equally cyborized gun-for-hire, to make a last stab at independence from the rapacious Orbitals.

    Very good narrator, story is from 2 points of view and takes a little bit to get used to but works great. I have listened to this book twice already.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Overall

    well I did it, I went against my better judgment and the other reviews I have seen on this book used a credit on this book, BIG MISTAKE I listened to about a minute of it before I turned it off and started the other book I downloaded at the same time. The recording quality reminds me of listening to a tech instructor drone on about nothing to an empty room. Tip by this book contact the publisher and complain about the quality of the recording of it. 1 thing that did surprise me was the sample of the book was just the standard start of every audio book here, the audible start and the publisher you never got a chance to listen to the reader before you purchased. If I would have heard it before I used the credit I would have never downloaded it.

    First Meetings is a collection of three novellas (plus the original "Ender's Game") that journey into the origins and the destiny of one Ender Wiggin.

    Erik K says: "Great for fans (please stop the music)"
    "Not Bad Bsides the Music"
    Overall

    I have to agree with the other reviews that the "music" at the end/beginning of a section is to much it overpowers the book and you can barely hear the book at that point all and all it is not a bad series, the Ender's Game novella was not needed though.
