Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition | [Orson Scott Card]

Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - One of our most highly-rated books of all-time, Ender’s Game isn’t just a sci-fi novel for kids. From an early age, Ender must tackle the adult concepts of leadership, independence and self-reliance, abstract thinking, and accountability. It helps that he’s a genetically engineered super-genius, but still, that’s a lot to ask a kid to handle. The multi-cast narration adds layers of texture to the diverse characters throughout. —Chris

Publisher's Summary

Now a Major Motion Picture. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

Is Ender the general Earth so desperately needs? The only way to find out is to throw him into ever-harsher training at Battle School, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when his training begins. He will grow up fast.

But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. His two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Among the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

This Special 20th Anniversary Edition of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic is now digitally remastered with a full cast production. It also contains an exclusive bonus: an original postscript written and recorded by the author himself, Orson Scott Card!

    "Worth it"

    This is now high on my list of all time favorite books. The plot is very well done and the characters are engaging. It kept my attention throughout and rewarded me at the end with a very thought provoking ending. An intelligently written book. (Well read, too).

    "Riviting sci fi"

    Enders Game, a story that makes you cuss when your batteries die, or some other interfearence pushs your concentration elsewhere. Makes you ready for the real story which is Speaker for the dead. Ender Wiggins and family will entertain you.

    "This is a must have"

    I am not terribly into science fiction, although I like it. This book except for just a couple slow spots was positively riveting. The flow of the book and the plot were superb. The ending is worth the wait. I wish more books had the kind of endings this one did. This is one of those books that young or old, republican or democrat, or rich or poor you are going to love. You just can't wait to hear was ender wiggins is going to do next.

    "Okay book"

    This was originally a short story and should have stayed that way. The idea is a good one, but it drags in the middle and has a piece of the story line that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the ultimate plot. It reads as what it is, a good short story that was made into a novel without adding any substance.

    "Get it,"

    Amazing book with great characters and a fast pace that still has details and depth. The story is orginal and unfolds in just the right ways so it's logical but not predictable. The audio is excellent with multiple actors doing the voices with feeling and emotion that sound authentic and not overplayed or distracting. Perfect or as close as it gets. I've got 2 hours left but I just bought the next in the series.

    "Ho sci-fi readers"

    This is the comprehensive tale of a young man. A young man with the weight of the world on his shoulders at the tender age of 6. I embraced this book from the first chapter and couldn't let go until it was done. I am relieved to see that the story did not end and there are several other books to continue this outstanding saga. By all means read/listen "Ender's Game".

    "Very Well Done"

    A great book done very well in the audio format. By far the best sci-fi audio book I've listened to so far.
