"This is a worthy ending to what might be styled a saga of the ethical evolution of humanity, a concept seldom attempted before and never realized with the success Card achieves here." (Booklist)
"Card's prose is powerful." (Publishers Weekly)
Perhaps the narrators are just too slow and melodramatic. I had to speed up the reading at times and my mind wandered at others.
Might be better as an eyes-on-page read since you can go faster.
worth listening to. sometimes too preachy. s the still a good story. sometimes the religion and stereo typing makes me crazy , but books are written for our times. some times I agree with the author and sometimes not.
This book finished the story of Ender's but with an unexpected continuation. I will now move into the Ender's Shadow series.
I have read many books by Orson Scott Card and enjoyed them all! Read Pathfinder!
i loved the series but this was a little hard to finish. it seemed like some of the conversations were unnecessarily repetitive and drawn out
Since the narration is done by the same people who perform "Xenocide," it is quite easy to get into the flow. The vocal characterizations are brilliant, expressing even more than the words themselves do. There are so many great moments, it is hard to come up with one. If I have a favorite, it is Peter's soliloquy when he and Wang Mu deliver the Molecular Disruption Device to the hold of the flagship of the Lusitania fleet. I am looking forward to the coming-together of the Ender and Shadow series for a resolution of the phylotic threads created in those two brilliant series.
Excellent performance. A bit too philosophical. Felt out of place in the series. A number of facts and conversations were repeated from previous books. Found that boring. Overall, I continued to enjoy the characters and I enjoyed the sense of discovery that was carried on from Xenocide.
Card and the performers truly please with the story and captured emotion in the reading of this epic classic finale to the Ender Saga. I cannot wait to listen to Enders Shadow as I continue to learn more about the Universe Card has created, in a way I've literally never heard before. Growing up reading these books was amazing to me, but being able to listen to them again and live the same story in a whole new way is truly an experience I cherish. I can't wait to go to work so I can listen to more of these books.
