Ender’s Game
 By: Orson Scott Card

This book I had read before, but I couldn’t remember the specifics so I decided to give it another go. It was just as enthralling the second time.

Synopsis: The world's most talented children, including the novel's protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room where Ender's tactical genius is revealed. (via)

Easy, fast read
Super engaging
Makes you think a lot about human motivation
Basically I couldn’t put the book down

It was hard to think of little children having to take on such a mature role in society. Ender was just so young! 

Overall I would have to say that this book is fantastic. You empathize with Ender and want more than anything for him to find happiness. Plus it has an ending that will blow your mind! So if you haven’t read it… do it now.


Has anyone read the second book in this series?? How is it? 


  1. I read Ender's Game quite a while ago. I read so quickly that I often forget what I've read or what it was about. Nice to get the reminder with the synopsis!

  2. This was one of my favorite books when I was younger. I think I read the rest of the series. Didn't love them as much but still good.
