I love history and this time period is not one that I know alot about so I was anxious to learn more. I was disappointed with the seemingly bullet list approach. While I am sure that Mr. Jones is very capable, this book is not very "entertaining" as he said was one of his goals.
Probably not. The story is too succinct and the narration is not engaging.
Not very engaging.
This is one of the classics of Science Fiction.
This story reminds me of what it means to be human - conflicted, loyal, stubborn, divided, empathetic and all the rest.
Ender feeling hopeless, confused and angry at the overwhelming odds faced in the final battle and hearing Bean say, "The enemy's gate is down". That brings clarity and a feeling of decision to win, even if it means "cheating" by attacking the planet.
