Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel is given award-winning treatment as an audiobook....Ender's Game offers outstanding production and first-rate narration. Don't miss it. Audio File
A pleasure to listen to. Refreshing, highly entertaining and fast-paced. Orson Scott Card is a phenomenal writer. USA TODAY
“An affecting novel full of surprises that seem inevitable once they are explained.” New York Times Book Review
“A powerful book about war, that ranges in topic from reflex-training video games to combat between our inner-and other-directed selves.” Christian Science Monitor
“Layers fold with immaculate timing, transforming an almost juvenile adventure into a tragic tale of the destruction.” Houston Post
“Card’s phenomenal emotional depth comes through in the quiet, carefully paced speech of each performer. No narrator tries overmuch to create separate character voices, though each is clearly discernible, and the understated delivery will draw in listeners. In particular, Rudnicki, with his lulling, sonorous voice, does a fine job articulating Ender’s inner struggle between the kind, peaceful boy he wants to be and the savage, violent actions he is frequently forced to take. This is a wonderful way to experience Card’s best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“This audio version was created in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the novel, and it’s a gem. The audiobook is narrated by a full cast. Stefan Rudniki is particularly good as Ender.” School Library Journal (starred audio review)
“Superb characterization, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power.” Booklist
