      • I’m with Darian. For me the original audiobook is something like 10 1/2 hours. If this is going to be an audiobook of movie version, that’s what I’m nervous about. Books, in general, are better than the movies where the movie is based on the book. I have yet to enjoy a book that is based on a movie (screenplay).

        I would rather the actors from the movie redo the audiobook for the original book.

        • Good points all around. This, however, has nothing to do with the movie. This is an original audioplay script that Card has just written himself based on Ender’s Game. It is everything in the book and more. It will run about 6-7 hours in length. Nothing has ever been done on audio like this, to my knowledge. It’s very exciting.

        • How about a book adaptation of a movie based on a book? Bizarre, no? That’s what the upcoming new version of Ender’s Game at Target seems like. :) I’m sure it’s just the same novel with a new cover.

  1. *mind**blown**

    All the great sci-fi stories have separate audioplays (often told over the radio), so something like this, with an all new script, is huge!

  2. This is My company’s logo. Why is it being represented here this is not skyboat medias logo. This is The SkyBoats Logo. please take down.

    Thanks and God bless,
