Ender's Shadow Audiobooks

Orson Scott Card is a great writer. Everyone knows that. But even to great masters, writing a parallel story to Ender's Game cannot be considered easy. Even for Card. It's easy to assume that is going to look like a copycat but that's just not how the story went. Orson Scott Card is a great author, remember? With the Ender's Shadow he manages to make his vision more vivid, with more nuances and that is something to be grateful for. A talent like Orson Scott Card does not grow on trees. In Ender's Shadow we follow Bean as he wrestles through the days in a though world moving forward not by muscle power but using his brain. That's how he gets to Battle School and prepares himself for the future alien invasion. Only one little think about that, it's not going to be a future alien invasion, the future has just arrived!

Chronicles of Narnia Audiobooks

C.S. Lewis created a memorable series with Chronicles of Narnia. For people who didn't know it, the movies helped bring the spotlight to these children's books so many adults like to re-read. Such long lasting effect almost always has to do with fantasy and this series is no exception. Chronicles of Narnia follows the adventures of four children in their many travels to Narnia where they are more than just children and everything is far more than it seems.
