This was a great book! I don't generally read a lot of sci-fi, but I'm glad I read this one. I had also heard a lot of good reviews about it from others I know who'd read it. :)
I usually dont read these types of books... But I have to say I was very pleased with the read. What a great book!
This is classic science fiction at it's best. The tale of Ender and the children surrounding him is interesting, entertaining, and emotional. Here the moral is subtle, not mind-numbingly over-powering as in some of the sequels, keeping the book fast paced and meaningful.
Another book that causes the reader to sit back and wonder if the protagonist (Ender Wiggin) is anything like themselvesâ¦even though we're certainly not the super-genius Ender was bred to be, we've all felt alone and isolated at times, the way he does. Combine this with a hard military setting influenced by Heinlein's Starship Troopers, and a prophetic vision of the way "anonymous" personalities on the Internet are affecting our opinions and beginning to have an affect on our society as a whole; it all adds up to an unforgettable classic that will surely be remembered fifty, one hundred, and more years from now.
A fantastic book, one that holds up well to our current technological environment, esp when you consider it was written over 20 years ago.
Not only entertaining and engaging but offers a few tips regarding leadership. Not sure if I'll repost as I want to read it again
THIS IS A REALLY GOOD BOOK, WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE MOVIE
