So I listened to Ender’s Game Alive: The Full Cast Audioplay…

Ender's Game Alive: The Full Cast Audioplay by Orson Scott Card

So, I basically spent seven (7!!!) hours of my life listening to Ender’s Game Alive: The Full Cast Audioplay yesterday.

It wasn’t something I planned, I listened to the prologue (where Ender’s parents were pretty much ordered to have him or risk getting their DNA stolen so the government could make him anyway), and I had to find out what happened next. It’s a very addicting piece. I annoyed quite a lot of people since I was like a vegetable yesterday, just listening and listening. Note to self: in-ear headphones are not advisable when used for hours on end! (Ouch!)

I’ve never actually read any of the Ender books, but I’m pretty familiar with the theme (chosen boy who saves the universe via wargames), plus the “game” part of Ender’s Game had been spoiled to me a long time ago. Maybe it would’ve been better to be introduced to the universe via the book, instead of an audioplay dramatic retelling, but I enjoyed myself anyway.

I did find it weird that all the kids were so young, like Ender was six (practically a baby) when he leaves his family to start his training at “Battle School”. It was just something I couldn’t reconcile in my mind (especially with adult actors voicing the kids), so I pretended they were adolescents instead.

I wasn’t planning on watching the movie version (which came out today), but now I’m thinking that it might be cool to see Harrison Ford playing Col. Graff.

Audible Promo – Get 2 FREE Audiobooks!

September 2, 2010 1 comment

I think this is a pretty sweet deal. If you sign up for an Audible account right now, you’ll get credit to download any two audiobooks of your choice in addition to the one month free trial. So, you get the freebies, and after trying it out and it’s just not your style, you cancel your membership before your free trial period is up and you will not be charged. Sweet!

Personally, I’m not too fond of audiobooks, I have a hard time concentrating when I’m just listening and it’s so slow to finish a book, when I can zip through the whole thing faster by reading. But I’m not one to pass a freebie by, and neither should you!

I was checking out the Audible bestsellers, and I’m not surprised that Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy has the top 3 spots, followed by Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games.
