    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Nice teaser..."

    STORY (futuristic sci-fi) - Ender's Game is the story of a young genius boy's training in Battle School. He is Earth's greatest hope of surviving an invasion by the Buggers. There are four free chapters of Ender's Game Alive, which together total about 1 1/2 hours. They will take you basically through Ender's initial encounters in Battle School so you will get an idea about the story and performance but, obviously, the story is just beginning and the cool stuff is yet to come!

    PERFORMANCE - I listened to the regular version of Ender's Game in its entirety before I listened to these four chapters. Both versions are good, but I like this Alive version slightly better than what I listened to. It has sound effects and more voices, etc. Unfortunately, both versions have adults reading the roles of children, but they're still good performances.

    OVERALL - I'd recommend listening to these four teasers and then the sample of the regular Ender's Game before you decide which version you want to hear, but you should definitely listen to the story. I think any audience - male, female, young, old - will enjoy it immensely. There's no sex or cursing, but there is some violence between the students in Battle School.

    If you could sum up FREE Ender's Game Alive, Chapter 3 in three words, what would they be?

    Best Version Yet!


    What other book might you compare FREE Ender's Game Alive, Chapter 3 to and why?

    None. I've never heard anything like it.


    Have you listened to any of Full Cast Recording’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, but not this intricate. I liked Zorro a few years back with Val Kilmer, but it was a much shorter program. This is an event.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. Thinking of doing an Ender's Game Alive full day PARTY!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep doing these.
