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.

“Listeners will feel surrounded by Card's sophisticated, high-stakes universe. With a stately musical score and video-game sound effects, this "re-imagined" production sticks close to the novel while offering listeners an entertaining new way to enjoy one of science fiction's best loved stories.” (AudioFile)
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.
Ender, well that's who the story is about.
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
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
Get rid of the music it does nothing for the story, just makes the book look longer than it really is.
Hate the format
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.
I love Enders Game I have the 20th century addition this is only part of the story if you want to understand the 2 series that follow this book wouldn't help
