Audio book Review: The Enders Game by Orson Scott Card

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.
Is Ender the general Earth so desperately needs? The only way to find out is to throw him into ever-harsher training at Battle School, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when his training begins. He will grow up fast.
But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. His two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Among the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.
This Special 20th Anniversary Edition of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic is now digitally remastered with a full cast production. It also contains an exclusive bonus: an original postscript written and recorded by the author himself, Orson Scott Card!
This book was an OK book. I expected more from an Orson Card book. A lot of it was unbelievable. The story is an OK story. The narrators were excellent. It wasn't that. I just couldn't get into it like i was hoping I would. This book is good for Science fiction fans of fantasy. It plots Kids against adults. Give it a read and tell me what you think about it.

  1. This is one of my favorite SF stories. I am curious to see what they do with the movie, as the book takes place over a number of years - so the main kid, Ender, goes from age 6 to ~10.

  2. LOVE this book. Definitely one of the first that showed me how fantastic SF could be. Never read it as an audiobook, though. I wonder if that's why you couldn't get into it.
