Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters, those people scouring the planet for leaders, tacticians, and generals to save Earth from the threat of alien invasion. Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School. And there he met Ender.

"An exceptional work." (School Library Journal)
"An absorbing, near-flawless performance." (Kirkus)
"As always, everyone will be struck by the power of Card's children, always more and less than human, perfect yet struggling, tragic, yet hopeful, wondrous and strange." (Publishers Weekly)
Excellent performance by all major readers. The novel itself is as good as or better than Enders game. Recommend it after reading Enders game even though this is considered as an independent story
thank you. completed enders game and led into another thrilling series. story was excellent but the reading was fantastic. one movie or two the reading is far superior than the movies could be.
I was skeptical at first. I figured that another book about the same story would not be as good. I actually liked this side of the story better.
As with all of their work, these narrators put on one hell of a performance.
Well done, but.... Even though it does well as a side story that does well in filling in knowledge of the over all story, I felt it had a little to much profanity for a story about mostly young people. I realize some of them had lives that hardened them but I still felt the level of profanity was high. Other then that it was a good story that was well read.
I love to read! And audiobooks are wonderful for my long commutes.
I would recommend this book to a friend. Both this book and Enders Game stand on their own as great works of art. Together they are a wonderful way to spend time.
I love Bean, his thoughts, his wisdom and questioning of all of humanity. The blending of Enders Game within "Enders Shadow" is a masterpiece.
All of the narrators are wonderful.
Yes, the extreme reaction(s) came throughout the story.
