    ender's game is pretty awesome, when it's not being boring. and of course it is just me - in class yesterday the parts i mentioned as being boring TO ME were other people's favorite parts. and this is all due to a design flaw in me: i am physically incapable of visualizing action se...

    I read this book in 7th grade. I remember it so exactly because still, to this day, I distinctly remember sprinting up the stairs to get to the bookshelf to read the next chapter. It is an absolutely engrossing tale of a small boy involved in a big war, filled with heartache and camara...

    I was savaged by a miniature poodle the other day--wait--no, someone protested my review of The Giver the other day. If you have any pent-up rage from that college lit teacher who forced you to think about books, be sure to stop by and spew some incoherent vitriol--my reviews are now a...

    I read this novel because it was often the favorite novel of students of mine, and I wanted to understand why. I should mention that I love science fiction, and have read it avidly since I was barely more than a child. I'm not by any means some kind of anti-sci-fi snob. The first th...

    This is a novel that blows past conventional ideas like "disbelief." Apparently humanity, a species whose only real claim to fame is war, now stinks at war, and can only be saved by a child genius who is one part prophecy, one part bad science, and one part wish-fulfillment. Thanks to ...

    This was the first book I picked up and read all the way through in one sitting. Technically, it's not a difficult read but conceptually it's rich and engaging. "They have a word for people our age. They call us children and they treat us like mice." If you can't understand that ...

    Spoiler Alert*** God damn did I hate Ender?s Game. I checked out Amazon and can surely see why I wanted to give it a shot. Talk about a cult following of people absolutely smitten with it. I even read some where that it?s on the required reading list at Quantico. I suppose this ...

    After finishing this "classic" of science fiction, I find myself most intrigued by the large following it seems to inspire. My next step in regards to Ender's Game is not to read the next installation, but to explore the favorable reviews. But first I have to get my own frustration...

    Polemical indeed BEST SCI-FI'S NOVEL CONTENDER? I decided to read the novel basically because the incoming film adaptation (it was "incoming" at the moment that I read the book) and I wanted to read the original book before of watching the film. I am aware of the contro...

    i think 'ender's game' is the only book i've read three times. for me books often don't have repeat reading value in the same way some movies have repeat viewing value. it's probably because a movie takes two hours of your time while a novel, for me, takes a week or longer. so for some...

    This has to be, hands down, one of the best science fiction books written. Ender's Game is set in a disarmingly straightfoward sci-fi setting: a near future earth threatened by a hostile alien species with superior technology that seems determined to destroy the human race. The story ...

    Ugh. Okay. I'm officially giving up on this one. So, a little disclaimer here. I do not like Orson Scott Card. As a person. I think he's a shitty human who's used his award-winning author status as a platform to advocate the denial of other humans' rights. This is detestable to me....

    Not my cup of tea. Considering that the author probably intended the reader to sympathize with the main character, I disliked the main character way too much, right from the start. Also, many people will probably disagree with me but I think this book is rife with the author?s person...

    Do the ends justify the means? What if the only way to save your planet from certain annihilation is to ruthlessly manipulate a young child into becoming a solder who is skilled enough to destroy billions of your enemy, to make him into a killer? With Ender's Game, the reader get...

    [I have a new website where I review awesome books & more! http://unlearner.com] I wanted to like Ender's Game. I really did. It's a wonder that even after more than halfway into the book, I still clung on to the foolishly optimistic notion that the book would somehow redeem its...

    Hmmm, I find it hard to understand the level of following this particular book gets. Ender's Game is the type of sci-fi that doesn't interest me much. 225 pages about a boy playing video games, battling in zero gravity, and learning about how military works? I can work up some inte...

    Lots of people have already read this book, and it's pretty much universally acclaimed, so it probably doesn't really need another review. So I just want to point out one thing that bothered me both times I read it (with a decade at least in-between at that): Isn't it weird how much...

    Okay, some people find this book kind of juvenile and have trouble suspending disbelief long enough to enjoy it. For those folks, you might want to move along from Ender's Game. Ender's Game is the twenty-five year old science fiction classic that's soon to be a major motion picture...

    If I fail my exams this week, I blame this book. Ah Ender's Game, how you have sat on my bookshelf for over a year before I got to you. You have been so nicely received by the sci-fi community so why did I put you off? BECAUSE I WAS STUPID, THAT IS WHY. My stupidity aside, I hope...

    Ender?s game? Holy shit! Like many other books that are advertised as ?must reads? and ?milestones in insert-genre-here?, I am veeeeery late for the party. You might say that it?s a good thing, since I?m neither viewing this book through the nostalgia goggles, nor am...

    I read this story quite a while back with no special expectations. Like most books I read it just happened to be lying around the house. I read it, was hugely entertained, and went on to read three or four of the sequels. I've heard since all manner of 'stuff' about the author b...

    I am disgusted. I am so thoroughly disgusted with this book that I can?t even logically explain my utter revulsion. Ender?s Game reads like propaganda, and the characters in it are living it. It wasn?t until I saw the comparison to Adolf Hitler that I thought of Hitler Junge,...

    This was a really good book. On its surface it is a great story about a young boy who goes through tremendous struggles. On another level it is a brilliant psychological character study and an observation of group dynamics. On still another level it was an intelligent allegory for ...

    As he got into the car that waited silently in the corridor, he heard Valentine?s anguished cry. ?Come back to me! I love you forever!? Most readers of this review who have any interest in SF have certainly known of this book for years. It was published in 1977. I was in my ...

    Full review now posted! Some books define different aspects and periods of your life. Ender?s Game for me represents the loneliness of childhood when you?re different. I first read this book when I was 9 years old and just starting the 4th grade. I was the only kid in my small c...

    Once upon a time, there was a tiny 6-year old boy who all the other kids picked on. Little did they know that he was very special and all the adults secretly loved him even though they didn't stop anyone from picking on him, and also he knew karate and he didn't want to hurt them but h...

    I can't believe it took me forever to finally read this. I chose to watch the movie first last year, because I remember not having the physical copy of the book yet. That was the biggest mistake of my reading life. The book is way better than the movie. I know you've probably seen t...

    Outside of the Harry Potter series, this is the book that taught me reading is fun. It was first assigned to me over winter break in high school and I re-read twice since then (this is also one of the first books I ever re-read). It's a well known story (and was adapted into a movie) s...
