Editorial Reviews

Review

This abridged trilogy of titles enjoys special significance in audio form: where the original novels may have proved stilted and stifling in detail at times, the streamlined versions of Ender's Game, Speaker For The Dead and Xenocide take on new life in audio version, tracing the efforts of humanity to thwart a second deadly invasion by aliens, and of winner Ender to discover the true meaning of the genocide they have enacted on an entire race. -- Midwest Book Review

From AudioFile

This trilogy of science fiction follows the life and adventures of Ender Wiggin from the "games" he played as a child, which destroyed the Buggers, to his prevention of the "Xenocide" of several races. Each story is seamlessly abridged. Mark Rolston narrates, subtly shifting intonation and accent to reflect adults, computers and non-human races. Interesting tricks of voice and telepathic thoughts add to the appeal of these stories. With unending action and complicated plots, the trilogy concludes just when it gets really interesting. M.B.K.

This four-volume set of 9 cassettes recounts the entire saga of Ender Wiggin and is packaged together for maximum impact. The initial titles in the saga are brought to life in abridged works which also benefit from a dual narration by Mark Rolston and Barrett Whitener. The effect is uniform and absorbing.

There is only one series of books in this world that I can truthfully say I have read over one-hundred times. There is only one series of books that give me something new every time I read them. Ender's Game and the books that follow and coincide with it are truly specialin their ability to tell a story that reflects human emotion so vividly that you find yourself invested deeply. I've looked through Ender's eyes as he prevailed through all that was thrown at him. I've cried when he was bent and twisted to the will of his trainers. I've felt for his sister when she realized that Ender had truly lost something of what he used to be. Then finally, I became both angry and relieved when in the end, there was victory yet a victory that Ender couldn't walk away from... it would forever be a haunting vision deep in his mind. I pitied him, as if he were a dear friend. For to me, he was. Mr. Card. You've made me love a child, and a man, I've never met and know to never have existed, but whom I would lay my life down for. Thank you.

As soon as you pick up this bbok you will be unable to put it down. Great detail and very well written. Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is the best book I've read in years

I always enjoy finding new scifi/fantasy novels for me to explore. Card's saga of Ender Wiggin was one of the first since Tolkeins' "Trilogy" and Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia" to intrigue and completely engulf me. I honestly still think of these characters and how much they seem to have interpreted my own life. Card developed their personalities and spirits uniquely and intricately. A very intelligent scifi novel.

I had recently decided to reread the Ender Series, but I wanted to listen to it, since it takes me so long to read now that I am so busy. But I have lots of time in the car....So I purchased these audio tapes. What upset me was that these works are abridged. They are the not the whole story. I searched for better ones that had the whole book, but I couldn't find any anywhere. So if you don't mind hearing the abridged version, these are good. But I didn't like it very much, even though it made me remember the parts I had read more vividly. The Ender series is wonderful and well done, but the tapes aren't all that they appear to be.
