Publisher's Summary

One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston is the story of the First Formic War. Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn’t believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame. And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.

ARGH - performance was too irritating to listen to

What disappointed you about Earth Afire?

I have every Enders Game book, but should have checked the performance on this prior to purchase. Very irritating, screechy. I returned the book. Stefan Rudnicki is the only tried and true performer.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Baby talk, screeching and distracting at best.

This is a GREAT adventure Sci-Fi Book. Masterful!

I fell in love with Sci-Fi from reading "Ender's Game" many, many, years ago. Even great writers like Orson Scott Card can write mediocre stories -- but this one fits in the very top of the master's work and Sci-Fi as a whole! It kept me a gripped for hours. The narration was great. If you are a fan of Card you must read this one. Prequels are not always good, but this one is BEYOND good and would fit in the great category.
