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.

    I may have no idea what the question actually is but I'm still positive the answer is "42"

    "Good filler for the series but its no enders game"
    Would you recommend Ender in Exile to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the Ender series. It Could still be a good story for someone else but you would be missing so much back story that I think the full impact of the book would be kinda lost.


    Any additional comments?

    Over all I did like this book, and for Ender fans its def a 4 star book. Though I think that a non Ender fan or someone that hasn't read atleast Ender's Game might rate it lower.

    "Ender in Exile is perfect"
    What did you love best about Ender in Exile?

    The story and the characters were true to Ender's Game. I love to read anything in the Enderverse and Card does an excellent job in this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just like all the rest, the conflicts and interactions between characters are phenomenal.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was superb.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ender can't be matched.

    "Dissapointing"

    I felt like this was written just to "fill in" and tie up loose ends, too many threads of story, not enough single main plot/conflict. I was disappointed.

    Story
    "Ender is outstanding and fully engages your mind"
    If you could sum up Ender in Exile in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic, Fun, Engaging


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ender in Exile?

    I love all the areas where the reader can get into Ender's mind and how he plays situations and outwits others.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Clear voice with proper amount of excitement and enthusiasm


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, yes, yes,........ Never wanted to stop when I got to work or home. I listened to this book during my daily commute to work. Couldn't wait to get back into the car to listen.

    "Nice if you're an Ender fan"

    Nicely fills in the some blanks between other Ender stories. The pace is a little slow sometimes but worth listening to. If you're not an Ender fan, don't bother.

    "Same emo, no new ideas."

    All the whining of the original book, with out any of the new creative ideas. Card is doing to Ender walk Lucas did to Anikin. Nothing in this book will surprise you.

    "Lost time"

    This it an exultant patch between Enders game and Speaker For The Dead. Even with the few discrepancies like Coronal Graft living longer than Enders brother Peter. It was very well written as is all the Ender books are. Always thought provoking on the inter workings of peoples minds and how they came to be that way. As always their is a variety that will not disappoint you, you will see people you know in some of his character and you may find one that reminds you of yourself. Be careful you may not like them.

    "A SUPER GREAT SEQUEL to Enders Game"

    The writer is so great at telling the story and this sequel was so enjoyable. I could not stop listening to it until it was finished! Thank you, OSC, for using your talents for others to enjoy!

    "Nice way to tie things together"

    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

    "Weakest Enderverse book yet"

    This book is suppose to elaborate the space between Ender's game and Speaker for the Dead and also tie the Ender books to the Shadow saga.
    The book has a few interesting themes but suffers from slow pacing an and a lack of major events occurring. There are also awkward moments of logic and plot progression as the story attempts to tie three very different books together. Orson Scott Card is simply too fettered by his consistency obligations to the other books and the story suffers terribly because of it.
    Ultimately this book never transcends what it is: a filler for hardcore Enderverse fans.
    I would not recommend this book to anyone who has yet to read and enjoyed the other Ender and Shadow saga books.
