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.

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.

Just prior to reading (listening to) Ender's Game, I had read Dan Brown's titles: The Davinci Code and Angels and Demons. I loved the Dan Brown books, but Ender's Game was even better.

Ender Wiggen is a character for the ages. His story will live on through time for those who believe that our minds do have tremendous power, but still enjoy the action, suspense, drama and emotion of a good story. If you are reading this review, stop - and start reading Ender's Game. It doesn't get any better.
