  • Earth Afire

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card, Aaron Johnston
    • Narrated By Stephen Hoye, Arthur Morey, Stefan Rudnicki, and others
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston is the story of the First Formic War. Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn’t believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame. And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.

    DocJim says: "This is a GREAT adventure Sci-Fi Book. Masterful!"
    "Wait for the next book!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Lame! Just as much of a be continued as the last one, but this one is slow and totally predictable. Worst book in the whole Enderverse!

    What could Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A good story doesn't need to be a cliff hanger. Ender's Game was a complete story. The last two books have Not been!

    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narration is fabulous as always.

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It never would be!

    "Great Review! (Textbook Summary)"
    What made the experience of listening to VangoNotes for Microbiology the most enjoyable?

    There are 28 separate chapters, all about 25 minutes long. They summarize the key points you should have learned in lecturing or by reading the full textbook. After the "Key Points" summary they quiz you to make sure you are getting it. It's a little hard to follow the summary when you're our and about, but don't worry. Just wait until you hit the review questions and if you don't know the answers, go study what you need to learn.

    What other book might you compare VangoNotes for Microbiology to and why?

    Cliff Notes or Spark Notes.

    Which character – as performed by Amy LeBlanc and Mark Greene – was your favorite?

    Amy does summary, then Mark quizzes you.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's great to listen to a chapter, get all the questions right, then Know that you Know what you should be learning in Micro.

    Any additional comments?

    There is a bad review that bags on Vango. It made me Very reluctant to but this. That review is complete crap. They give you exactly what they say, and they do it Commercial free!! I repeat, There are NO adds!
