Publisher's Summary

From the author of Ender's Game, the Hugo and Nebula award-winning international best seller, comes the parallel novel, Ender's Shadow. In the first book, child-hero Ender Wiggin battles a deadly alien race and wins. But Ender wasn't the only child in his Battle School. There was also Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, his strategist and his friend, the only one who was with him in the final battle. Now Card tells Bean's whole story, while expanding and complementing the earlier tale.

    "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.

    "Audio too bad to listen to"

    Seriously. Get the other version. This recording sounds like Michael Gross recorded it from inside one of the creatures in Tremors.

    "Terrible sound quality. It ruined the audiobook."
    What would have made Ender's Shadow better?

    A much much better audio quality. I can hardly judge the performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I should get a credit refund. I was like reading a book with blurry letters

    "Readers"

    It was sometimes hard to hear the reading as the voices sounded scratchy or unclear.

    "awesome and exciting"

    this book was true to the original and just as exciting. The story delved into another primary character with an equal struggle yet alternate problems that thrill the imagination.

    "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.
