Winner of the Hugo and Nebula AwardsFor the perfect holiday gift for the reader on your list, pick up this special gift edition of one of the most beloved Science Fiction novels ever written. Andrew "Ender" Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games at the Battle School; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. Ender is the most talented result of Earth's desperate quest to create the military genius that the planet needs in its all-out war with an alien enemy. Is Ender the general Earth needs? The only way to find out is to throw the child into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast.But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. The war with the Formics has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives. Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Training a child from a very young age to fight against these aliens who wiped out billions of people from...
Well. Now I can finally say I've read it!
Spoilers!!13/5 - Now this is how you do the first book in a series! I just finished #2 in the Maze Runner series feeling pretty pissed off because nothing was properly explained and it featured another massive cliff hanger ending. Thank God that didn’t happen in Ender’s Game!!! This book/author had ...
I read this book as an audiobook, which, according to the author's note at the end is his ideal form for people to read it in.Maybe because I read as an audiobook, I thought it was fast-paced. I thought it was exciting. I didn't love Ender, but I didn't hate him either. I felt bad for him. The adult...
Orson Scott Card is your stereotypical conservative. He supports the War on Terror, doesn’t like Obama and would be very cruel to his son if he were gay. You’d think that such a person cannot write about accepting the different, or about how war is actually harsh. If you believe what they write abou...
