I Could not put Ender's game down it was so good. This story is set in the future when people are able to live on other planets and the human race is have a war with aliens called buggers. This book has action, suspense, and a little bit of adventure which is what makes it a great read. At every chapter it ends with a cliffhanger and that really pulls you in to reading more and more. The story is about a little kid named Ender that is drafted to go to war school. When he is there he excelled so much that he moves up through "grades" easily. He meets a lot of new people on his way to the top. One of the themes in this story is to never give up no matter what happens. The reason I like this book is because the author lets Ender tell the story instead of being a narrator, which I find boring. I love this book and I reccomend it for people of all ages.

"Ender's Game was strongly recommended to me by a friend, but as I am not a big fan of sci-fi, I was reluctant to read it. That being said, I was taken completely by suprise when I couldn't put it down!"

"Card has taken the venerable sf concepts of a superman and interstellar war against aliens, and, with superb characterization, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power. This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers — a major sf novel by any reasonable standards."
The Earth is under attack from aliens known as "buggers." The only hope is a brilliant general named Ender Wiggin. The only problem is that he is a child.
