Ender’s Game

Ender's GameThis novel is a very well developed story of a six-year-old Einstein who is chosen by the international government to be the savior of the human race. Ender Wiggin is sent into space to an elite school for geniuses, where they are trained for eight to ten years to fight the deadliest enemy their world has ever faced: the Buggers.

My overall favorite scene is when Ender proves his ability to think like no commander before him, using his already dead soldiers as a shield to keep just one alive, when hopelessly outnumbered by his enemy. My favorite character is Ender, because he is able to kill the enemy with his powerful knowledge. Sorry, that’s redundant, this book defines that knowledge is power. This writer is amazing, and if you like this book I also recommend Ender’s Shadow and Speaker for the Dead. Have a wonderful time reading!  [ThreeRatMom]

  1. Hmmm, one of the most overrated sci-fi “classics” of all time — Card’s prose bugged me, I mean, he can’t put together a complex sentence if his life depended on it. And the endorsements of Ender’s accidental kills (the bully, etc) hints at a more disturbing undercurrent of the work … I dunno. What do you think of those two points?

  2. Andrew Wiggin is the only boy who has the power to save the world. He nicknames himself Ender. He is a six-year-old genius and is being shipped off to Battle School to learn to fight the Buggers, which happened to almost wipe out the human race. Ender eventually commands a whole starfleet.

    I really recomend this book for people who love action and sci-fi. One thing I liked in this book is the battle room, a zero-gravity room for practicing combat.

  3. I think the book is good but it was disturbing how he killed them. If this was a game, I would rate it M for obvious reasons.

  4. This is one of my favorite books. Andrew, or Ender, was born as a ‘third.’ This means that he was a third child, after his brother Peter and his sister Valentine. Most parents are not permitted to do this. He is incredibly smart, even at the young age of six. Ender is chosen to go into space to join the International Fleet. He makes friends, and enemies, along his journey in space, training to one day battle the Formics, a species of alien. He is quickly moved along from launchie to commander, and the battles and adventures he goes through are intense.

    This book has a strong and interesting plot throughout. My favorite character is Bean, because he is so smart and funny and almost always has an open mind. If you liked this book, I would also recommend Ender’s Shadow, which is basically the same story, but from Bean’s perspective. The whole book is so interesting, I don’t know how to pick a favorite part! But I did enjoy The Fantasy Game plot, which you will hear more about when you read the book! Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend this book.

  5. I love this novel, Card is so precise and is very good with words. Like J K Rowling and so many other authors famous for their work, he can make you have very strong feelings toward, against, and for characters he wants you to hate, and ones he wants you to love.
