I've read this book twice and I'd be happy to read it again. It seems to get better every time I read it. The last time (around this time last year) I read on audio and it was even better that way. I'd be happy to do this one again if you'd like.

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments Have you read the Enders Game one?


message 15: by ZaraS (new)

ZaraS  *book reviewer Lady Knight wrote: "Have you read the Enders Game one?"

No I haven't. Although I've heard of it.


message 16: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments I'm ok with either one of those, so it's up to you if you want to reread or read something new!


message 17: by ZaraS (new)

Excellent. I have it on reserve from the library.


message 20: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments I was able to get it on the OverDrive app through my library. So I'm all set too!

Now I'm really excited about the beginning of the month. Thanks for all your patience Lady Knight.


message 22: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments No problem! Im excited too :)


message 23: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments I started reading this! I'm about halfway, and I'm listening to it as an audiobook.

(view spoiler)

Have you seen the Tom Cruise movie version of this book?

It's an intriguing idea, especially for the time when it was written, but I don't find the writing drawing me in..."


I started reading this as an ordinary book (it's not bad at the moment) but I think I'll have to switch to the audio as the print in the book is way too small even for me.

No I haven't seen the movie of this book. I generally try to read the book before seeing a movie of it otherwise I can't enjoy the book.


message 25: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments I saw it so long ago it feels like it doesnt count. I finished this morning and definitely liked it, but didnt love it. 3 stars for me.

I hope to finish by tomorrow. I plan to do lots of reading of it today.

ZaraS  *book reviewer Hi Lady Knight,

I have finished this book. It was not a bad read actually. I was pleasantly surprised.

Do you want to read another book or leave it at this one?


message 29: by Lady Night (new)

Lady Night (ladynight) | 176 comments I'm ok with leaving it at this one. I'm gonna be pretty busy the next couple weeks. Thanks for participating though! This was fun!

That's fine with me as well Lady Knight. I also have a few books to read for the rest of this month. Thanks for being my partner.
