Great book

Good movie. Well worth a read.

Astonishing

Best book I've ever read!

Awesome

its cool

Excellent

A memorable story - you really care about the characters. Also read "Ender's Shadow" which visits the same events from Bean's point of view.

Awesome

This is a great science fiction book. It's about a child but is really a read for adults. Make sure to read the other books in the series because they are just as good as this one.

Best SciFi book

This was one of the best books I've ever read, I really liked the plot.

Good Story

It's kind of redundant to tell people that this is a good story, because it's probably one of the best know modern science fiction novels. A boy is sent off to "Battle School" in a crash program to train a new generation of fighters to defend Earth against an alien invasion. But it's not quite your average "boy sent to boarding school" book, because the school presents some unusual challenges, and the teachers seem to be breaking all the rules to put our hero under more and more stress, forcing him to dig deeper and deeper to meet one crazy challenge after another. Very dramatic, except for some weird passages involving a computer game that kind of dragged for me.

Orson Scott Card is the target of some dislike because of his active involvement in anti-gay-rights movements. Nothing much of that is visible in any of his books that I have seen.

Gamers love this.

As a gamer, I was riveted by what I read. The characters are well developed, and the author does a great job of making reading about computer games one of the most interesting things I've done.

one of the best books I have ever read

Amazing!

This book was absolutely amazing. It is so creatively done, and it never lost my full attention. It's a look at what our future may hold, and it is truly astonishing. I would definitely recommend this book for all ages.

From Bullied to Hero

Ender's life is full of challenges which only increase in difficulty. Every member of his family is special. Who knew where he would end? The story of a boy struggling to find himself and his stamp on society. Much better than the distopia novels.

Ender's Game

Truly original; I never saw the ending coming. This world will fascinate you. The next book in the series, Speaker for the Dead, is an even better read, so make sure you check that one out too.

Good

Though diff cover I loved this book, I thought that it seemed boring at first so i was kind of down when i was assigned it but i was way wrong i LOVED this book

Amazing

This is by far my favorite science fiction book, and I've read lots of them! Definitely a MUST for anyone, including people who don't normally enjoy science fiction.

Stunning

Ender's Game is a great futuristic and sci-fi novel. To Ender it is all a game. But is it?

Truly Superb

In Ender's Game, the human psyche, especially as it relates to aggression, is explored through the story of a boy who is made to win a war. A truly memorable and enchanting novel.

The Boy who Saved Humanity

Ender's Game is a book of decisions and attitude. Andrew Wiggin is sent to Battleschool, where he is destined to save humanity from an alien race called the Buggers. He doesn't want to kill...he thinks it's all a game. Is it? This tells of a boy who grows up to be something he doesn't want to be. A very good book, including the ones that follow.
