I'm in my late 20's and I picked up this book earlier this year because I heard a rumor it was going to be a movie. It was a rapid page turner. My friends all said they read it in high school, so I absolutely recommend it for ages 12 and up. The story is captivating. There isn't anything to say about it that hasn't been said in the last 25+ years. This should be on everyone's "Must Read Before I Die" list.

Orson Scott Card gifted us with the far-future tale of humans versus the insect-like aliens, known as the Buggers. The tension in this book is kept high by never quite knowing what obstacle is going to be thrown at Ender next. Orson Card truly put together a twisted, harsh, thoroughly entertaining read. The story maintains a tight aspect of great need, the need to keep the human race alive in the universe. The reader often catches glimpses of the adults in the story privately regretting putting Ender, and all the other kids at Battleschool, through such hell. Having this human side to the procrastinators of the story really rounded it out and made it a classic.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? One of the best science fiction books for young adult readers out there. It's a book that sticks with you once you read it. Ender's Game is about a group of gifted children who are brought into a militant training program in outer space to fight an upcoming alien invasion. The characters are extremely well done; this isn't your typical science fiction novel.

"Review" by , "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."
"Review" by , "'Intense' is the word for Ender's Game."
"Review" by , "An affecting novel full of surprises that seem inevitable once they are explained. The key, of course, is Ender Wiggin himself. Mr. Card never makes the mistake of patronizing or sentimentalizing his hero. Alternately likable and insufferable, his is a convincing little Napoleon in short pants."
"Review" by , "A gripping tale of adventure in space and a scathing indictment of the military mind."
"Review" by , "This twenty-five-year-old science fiction classic [is] unlike many hardcore SF titles [in that it] is particularly appropriate for a younger audience, for its protagonist, Ender Wiggin, is just six years old at the novel's beginning and still a pre-teen at its end....For the most part, this novel will deservedly reach a new generation."
"Synopsis" by , The Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic is now available in an author's definitive edition. The alien Buggers threaten humanity with extinction, and Earth's ultimate savior may be one small boy. Andrew "Ender" Wiggins thinks he is only playing computer games, but he is really commanding Earth's last great fleet.
"Synopsis" by ,

When three unusually attractive young adults rent the summer cottage next door, Barney's boring vacation at the beach seemingly takes a turn for the better. However, after the neighbors unwittingly reveal their extraterrestrial identities, the board game they have taught him becomes a real-life battle, and Barney must outsmart the aliens to save Earth from destruction. The fantastical tale contains some of Sleator's most inventive characters.
