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 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!
