Great book. Great readers
Ender series and the shadow series are my favorite book series. nothing has topped them yet.
There is no other writer like Card. We could do worse than study his books (especially the Ender series) for tips on how to run the world in a rational and moral way.
This is another book in the Bean saga and actually I like it more than the Ender Books. Since the Bean subseries (Shadow Series) are playing out on Earth after the bugger war, they are important for understanding the Ender Books out in the colonies. Not only is Bean an interesting and lovable character, but you find out a lot about the rest of the battle school boys and the hegemon. Also the audio is done very well, with different voices and narrators. I actually looked forward to my commute.
Great insight into Ender’s world. Not very exiting and a long drawn out story.
A good addition to a great series (although some consider the Ender books and Bean books to be two series). Though the original "Enders Game" is still my favorite, this book was very enjoyable. The use of multiple readers was also welcome. Anyone reading this series should make sure to read them in the proper order.
The audio book version is very well done, with several narators and some sound effects making the book a treat to listen to. As for the book itself, as many of you following the saga have probably noticed , the story has been dragging now for quite some time. It appears that Orson Card ran out of ideas a while ago , but did not want to left the saga unfinished.
This series keeps getting better. It's long, but there's not a slow moment and Bean keeps getting more lovable. Just plain fun all the way through. Hope there's another one soon. I was disappointed in the later Ender books. Wish they'd been more like these about Bean and the rest of the Jeesh.
I love Orson Scott Card, and I was not disappointed by this book. I was glued to my speakers. I have been waiting for a while to understand how Peter becomes the Hegemon. Really good book, and the narrators were good overall.
