Audible Editor Reviews

With a full cast production, this highly-entertaining dramatization of the award-winning military science fiction story Ender's Game will wow fans as well as listeners new to this classic. Using an original screenplay written by Orson Scott Card himself, the audioplay takes listeners through Battle School with prodigy Ender Wiggin.

The cast fleshes out their characters with full personalities and motivations - in particular, the actors who portray the children at Battle School do a wonderful job in bringing out their precociousness and fading innocence. The action scenes are brisk and electrifying, and listeners will be swept up in the events of the story.

    Story
    "It was ok"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes and no, if you don't mind musical interludes every 10 min its good but very annoying,it is also not needed for the book just wastes time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ender, well that's who the story is about.


    Have you listened to any of Full Cast Recording’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not and if their other recordings are as full of these musical breaks which I find don't do any thing for the story I would not listen to any more of them


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Because the movie is coming out that is why I am listening to this book, and yes I would go see it based on the book


    Any additional comments?

    Get rid of the music it does nothing for the story, just makes the book look longer than it really is.

    "Buy the book"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Hate the format


    Any additional comments?

    The main reason for this review is to say I do not like the Audio Play format at all, much prefer a book. The long periods of music in between chapters are just annoying, having to identify voices is a pain. Lacks the detail of a good book.
