Carrie I thought this was an amazing book as well. I never read any of the others and I can't really articulate why. My husband and sons have read all the books and they said overall the Bean series is better than the Ender series because it is more straightforwardly science fiction and less philosophical.

Kerry Thanks for the great review Jane. I am always looking for well-done audio books to listen to on my IPOD. I went straight to my library's audio book download site and, sure enough, they had this book. I am currently downloading it as I type this review! I have listened to several YA series on audio, so I am glad to learn about this one.

Jane Stewart Carrie,
Wow – the guys liked Bean better huh? Is this a “Men are from Mars” thing? I’m glad they liked it, but I need Venus things. Your intuition about not reading the rest sounds good to me.

Oh, I’m so glad. Hope you like it.

Carrie I should check with Will to get this right, but I from what I remember they all liked Ender's Game the best, but after that they preferred Ender's Shadow and the rest of the Bean series over the rest of the Ender series. There is a new book out for the Ender series that actually takes place between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. the title is Ender in Exile and takes place directly after Ender's Game. I think Speaker for the dead picks up years later. I was thinking I might read this one depending on what my family says. I bought it for our Everything Box this past Christmas.
