This is now high on my list of all time favorite books. The plot is very well done and the characters are engaging. It kept my attention throughout and rewarded me at the end with a very thought provoking ending. An intelligently written book. (Well read, too).
Enders Game, a story that makes you cuss when your batteries die, or some other interfearence pushs your concentration elsewhere. Makes you ready for the real story which is Speaker for the dead. Ender Wiggins and family will entertain you.
I am not terribly into science fiction, although I like it. This book except for just a couple slow spots was positively riveting. The flow of the book and the plot were superb. The ending is worth the wait. I wish more books had the kind of endings this one did. This is one of those books that young or old, republican or democrat, or rich or poor you are going to love. You just can't wait to hear was ender wiggins is going to do next.
This was originally a short story and should have stayed that way. The idea is a good one, but it drags in the middle and has a piece of the story line that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the ultimate plot. It reads as what it is, a good short story that was made into a novel without adding any substance.
Amazing book with great characters and a fast pace that still has details and depth. The story is orginal and unfolds in just the right ways so it's logical but not predictable. The audio is excellent with multiple actors doing the voices with feeling and emotion that sound authentic and not overplayed or distracting. Perfect or as close as it gets. I've got 2 hours left but I just bought the next in the series.
This is the comprehensive tale of a young man. A young man with the weight of the world on his shoulders at the tender age of 6. I embraced this book from the first chapter and couldn't let go until it was done. I am relieved to see that the story did not end and there are several other books to continue this outstanding saga. By all means read/listen "Ender's Game".
