Reviewer Rating:


I decided to read Ender's Game after seeing the BuzzFeed list "14 Books to Read Before They Hit the Big Screen". Ender is just six years old when he is sent to a global military training academy. Earth has barely survived two alien invasions, and genetically enhanced children are being bred and trained to become the next wave of commanders to fight future invaders. Ender quickly becomes a leader in school, as he excels at zero-gravity mock battles, but over the years he becomes lonely, bitter, and hard-hearted. I don't usually read a lot of science fiction, but I found the book to be fast-paced and engaging. Ender is a sympathetic character, and the storyline felt unique to me.

Ender's Game won the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
