Publisher's Summary

"The ideal presentation of any book of mine is to have excellent actors perform it in audio-only format." - Orson Scott Card
This program is read by Stefan Rudnicki and a full cast including Emily Rankin, Kirby Heyborne, Orson Scott Card, P.J. Ochlan, Gabrielle de Cuir, Richard Gilliland, Kristoffer Tabori, and Judy Young.
From Orson Scott Card, award-winning and Best-selling author of Ender's Game, his first solo Enderverse audiobook in years.
Children of the Fleet is a new angle on Card's Best-selling series, telling the story of the Fleet in space, parallel to the story on Earth told in the Ender's Shadow series.
Ender Wiggin won the Third Formic war, ending the alien threat to Earth. Afterwards, all the terraformed Formic worlds were open to settlement by humans, and the International Fleet became the arm of the Ministry of Colonization, run by Hirum Graff. MinCol now runs Fleet School on the old Battle School station, and still recruits very smart kids to train as leaders of colony ships, and colonies.
Dabeet Ochoa is a very smart kid. Top of his class in every school. But he doesn't think he has a chance at Fleet School, because he has no connections to the Fleet. That he knows of. At least until the day that Colonel Graff arrives at his school for an interview.

Reboot? Same old story...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Everything. Once again there is a brilliant child.. who is superior to all others.. just like ender.. just like bean.. I stopped after 3 hours.. it just felt like Orson Scott Card is trying for a cash grab to start another series. Please finish the 3 you already have going. I've been in the Enderverse since the 80's and this is the first book I really didn't enoy.

Has Children of the Fleet turned you off from other books in this genre?

Pretty much until something pertaining to Ender or Bean or the bug wars is complete

Would you listen to another book narrated by Stefan Rudnicki?

Yes- Love Stefan Rudnicki

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Nope-- why another cash grab Orson Scott Card? I was so disappointed to the rush job on Ender's game.

Any additional comments?

Skip this book

Unlikable Kids Goes on Boring Adventure

I've worked my way through the whole Ender's series and this is a rare miss. I've never had so much disdain and apathy for a protagonist. Hopefully this is just a stumble and we'll be back on track for the next book, otherwise, it's been a fun journey but time to move on.
