Ender in Exile | [Orson Scott Card]

Ender in Exile

Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

Publisher's Summary

Orson Scott Card returns to his best-selling series with a new Ender novel.

At the close of Ender's Game, Andrew Wiggin - called Ender by everyone - is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony.

He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies. With him went his sister Valentine, and the core of the artificial intelligence that would become Jane.

The story of those years has never been told...until now.

The End? Listen to more of Ender's story.

    "Michael"

    Great book! Unbelievable the way Card was able to tell this story and keep all of his fact straight with all of the other Ender books out there.

    Fun to listen to! This book provides a lot of insight to the overall story of Ender.

    "Refreshingly complete"

    This is an awsome companion book to the entire enderverse story. It fills a very important gap that the enders game series skipped but that had a very large impact on ender and valentines decision process for the future. Much of enders life was based on what happened here and is the reason he wanted a home so badly.

    "My least favorite of the series"

    This book was primarily a forum for the main characters to complain about everything that happened to each other in the first book.

    "Ender's Shadow is better but this is good"

    I was so impressed by every element of Ender's Shadow that I didn't find Enders Game as interesting or complex. Bean's character in Ender's Shadow is far more developed than Ender, himself, is in Ender's Game. The narrators are wonderful and could probably make any story interesting. They are excellent!

    "Great Listen"

    I have listened to all of the books about Ender since listening to Enders Game years ago. This is the best sequel to Ender's Game making it a must hear for all of Ender's fan.

    "Terrible, it's just a platform for Card's politics"

    This book is basically a series of Card's opinions about things like child bearing, religion, personal responsibility, point of life, etc, strung together with some loose character/plot to hold it together. If what you want is actual story telling this is a terrible choice. And if you've read much Card, you'll recognize a lot of the voice in this book - Ender is in many ways indistinguishable from Jason in the Worthing saga.

    "Do NOT listen before you do the Shadow series"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a good book. I enjoyed it, though it can be slow in parts. It COMPLETELY ruins the Shadow series. You've been warned.

    "Maximum of 50 Characters!!!!! Oops…………………………………..."

    I enjoyed this book. It bridged together enders game and speaker for the dead well and gave you a better insight of how Ender's friends and deeds were perceived right after the formic war.

    "almost as dull as star flight itself"

    For me, I did not enjoy the teenage-love-story that takes up most of the narrative for the first half of the book. Perhaps younger readers, especially in their teens, would have the opposite reaction and appreciate the subtle romance, but in the end, it turns out that the sexual tension was purely one-way and there nothing tangible to the whole love plot. Like eating a big, fat steak dinner, only there's no steak.

    What I did find interesting were the tid-bits toward the end of the book, that focused on Ender coming to terms with his past and tying up the loose ends with his parents, his brother the Hegemon, Hyrum Graff, and a surprise villain he encounters on the Ganges colony. Ultimately, even that juicy story-thread is cut short and resolved very quickly, leaving this intriquing new villain one-side and lacking any sort of depth or appeal.

    Don't get me wrong. There are some fantastic parts of this book, and a good supplemental read if you're a fan of the series. I wouldn't recommend passing it up, but, just be warned that it isn't as engaging as Enders' Game, or as thoughtful as Speaker for the Dead.
