So I finally got round to reading this. I think it's been around for a while (1985?) and some of the concepts aren't really the kind of thing you'd get for Young Adult. I found this incredible. Training a child from a very young age to fight against these aliens who wiped out billions of people from...

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...

It was just a great story and had brilliant ideas. I decided to listen to the book, after a bit of nagging and pleading. I'd always thought i...

While the concept of the story was interesting and unique, I found the entire book rather boring. Ender is forever in his Battle School, doing the same thing over and over again, and nothing fucking happens for half of the book. Ender can do absolutely no wrong; he is good at everything he fucking d...

This is one of those books that I'd heard so much about in the last few years, that it was kind of impossible not to read it at some point. Also, I watched the movie and although I saw the twist coming for quite some time, I really enjoyed it. Basically Ender's Game bottles down to Ender, a young ...

You know what? I didn't like this book as a kid and I liked it even less as an adult.The typical response to this opinion is that I need to read the rest of the series before passing judgement. But I plan on judging this book on the merits of this book, not on the rest of the series--nor on the auth...
