Ender's Game-Novel


Recommended Posts

Ender's Game is a book written by Orson Scott Card, followed by many other books based on this story.


Story Line:


Ender Wiggin. Brilliant. Ruthless. Cunning. A tactical and strategic master. And a child. Recruited for military training by the world government, Ender's childhood ends the moment he enters his new home: Battleschool. Among the elite recruits Ender proves himself to be a genius among geniuses. In simulated war games he excels. But is the pressure and loneliness taking it's toll on Ender? Simulations are one thing. How will Ender perform in real combat conditions? After all, battleschool is just a game. Right?


I have to give this book and the rest of the books the proceed it two thumbs up. This book is incredibly well written, I've read it three times now and have enjoyed it and taken something new from it every time. If you are wondering what book you want to start reading next please pick this book up and let me know what you think. It's probably the one book that I really want to see made into a movie... Except that hollywood would probably mess it up like all 3 Spiderman's. This book is definitely for the science fiction crowd but is capable of being enjoyed by all. I'm not to into the science fiction and this book definitely grabbed me. I think one of my favorite things about it is that the sequel is called "Ender's Shadow" and it is the same story but from a different characters perspective and it's just as amzing as "Ender's Game"

Orsen card scott, announced at comicon 3 years ago i think during his panel that he was going to make a movie of it. I like Ender's Shadow better, Bean is badass. Have you read speaker for the dead, genocide, and shadow of the hegemony yet?


Oh and what I want to see is a video game based on the battle room. A Mirrors Edge style anti grav strategy FPS would be BAD ASS.

The series is amazing if you want character development and with novels like Ender's Shadow you get to see Ender's Game through the eyes of your favorite side kick.


Ender's Game is the book that makes people who "don't like SciFi" hooked on the gerne.


Also yes it has long been said there will be a movie developed; not by one of the Major Studios but someone smaller, which sounds great at first, but then the same thing was said for The Golden Compass and well... only time will tell :]
