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.

With Narrators like Stefan Rudnicki, Scott Brick, and Gabrielle De Cuer its hard not to like listening to the stories as they are read with great passion and move along very nicely. This does a good job of filling in time blanks in the other stories of the Enderverse
Bachelor Chef and Mathematician. I don't bother with books shorter than 20 hours, not worth the effort.
After listening to this installment of the Ender story, I believe that this is one of the better tales. Though at times it is a bit confusing to those of us who have listened to or read the earlier episodes of the Ender series, this book does fill in some of the blanks from the other books.
Orson Scott Card is one of the authors whom I sincerely enjoy. Though he can be a bit preachy at times he does spin imaginative scenes and has obviously thought through MOST of his stories.
An 84 mister Clark, it has a good beat but you just can't dance to it.
For someone who has listened to every single book in the Ender & Bean series I loved this book.
I thought it was great and hope that Orson does more of these 'Ender' spin-offs
I also love the fact that Orson himself 'explains' all his books in the end. It really helps you understand where he is coming from and why he wrote each book
This is a great addition to the Ender books and I highly recommend it if you have enjoyed the other Ender books. The narrator and audio quality seemed identical to the other Ender books. I highly suggest finishing the Shadow series (starting with Ender's Shadow and ending with Shadow of the Giant, I think) before reading this. It isn't required to understand Ender in Exile, but this book would contain some spoilers and some of the impact of significant minor characters would be lost without having finished the Shadow series as this functions partially as a conclusion to the series. At an absolute minimum, I would suggest reading Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow first.
I have been a lover of science fiction all my life. But somehow I missed out on the Ender series. As a result, I had no idea what Ender in Exile was all about -- except that the really good parts were covered in other books. Don't even think about downloading this selection unless you're up to speed on the prior offerings. That would be like starting the Dune series with a book about sand worms.
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.
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.
This book was primarily a forum for the main characters to complain about everything that happened to each other in the first book.
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!
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.
"The final chapter"
If like me you have read all the books in this series from Enders Game, through to children of the mind then you will be left wondering about the years between the finish of his military career and where he goes after being exiled! Well this book pulls all this information together nicely... I have enjoyed listening to all the books and all have made the hours pass with a want to listen more!
Orson Scott Card has certainly looked into these to flow and where there are differences in the stories, this final book pulls and irons them out. Read them all.
If you read these, the film Endors Game although good will seem a little left short, but don't be put off Harrison Ford as Hiram and Ben Kingsley sad Razor are excellently portrayed and adopt the characters well.
"It's ok, not for die hard fans"
It's ok, it's suppose to follow the best book in the series and it's contradictions with the other books can annoy fans
