    "Great listen - if you can hear it"

    Audible needs to upgrade this recording so "Ender" fans can hear Bean's story of Battle School. Format 2 is nearly unlistenable.

    "Great Story....Lousy Production"
    What disappointed you about Ender's Shadow?

    The quality of the recording is very poor. The performance is good, it is the actual quality of the audio that is bad. It takes some getting used to. I expected better from Audible. Someone should have cleaned this one up before offering it for sale here.

    "Impossible listen"

    I love Ender's Shadow, but you can't hear this audiobook. I listened to it for about 5 minutes and gave up. Take my advice, and don't waste your money/credit. Audible should really remove this title.

    "GO for the unabridged version"

    Great story, good writing, I've read it in print, but poor audio recording and too much left out in the abridgment process, this version was disappointing. Get the unabridged version!
