While I enjoy these books I decided to change narrators. Big mistake. Tull draws out the narrative too much. I'm going back to Vance.
I guess these days anyone can get published. I am so glad that this one was a free offer from Audible or I would be seriously upset for the waste of money as well as my time listening to this garbage.
This book does not drag although you might want to take Ender across your knee a few times for being a petulant little brat. The story gives a probable account of a possible future and the misunderstandings that may occur with first contact. How we as a species will not just lay down, but will go to any length to survive even if it means damaging our little children.
I don't think they checked the transfer from CD or vinyl. There are two places where the narration skips like an old scratched record. Otherwise, the story is excellent.
Although Melville can be long winded, this narrator makes the trip worth it. Great listen.
