    "While I will admit that I am not the biggest Sci-Fi fan out there, this book does interesting and could go a few different ways in terms of plot development. The reviews are also very strong and I just feel Ender's Game could very much be an amusing and entertaining read, keeping my interest in what the fate our main protagonists will actually be. "

    "Absolutely yes. Ender's game is amazing and powerful and everyone should read it at least once. I actually read it when I was older and it had quite the impact on me. I wish I had read it when I was younger but it was still wonderful even as an adult."

    "Ender's Game is without a doubt one of the most classic books from the 1980s. The series has won many awards including a Hugo and a Nebula. This is the first entry into the series and one of my personal favorites. It's about a young boy in a distant world who is recruited to an academy for battle training."

    "I found myself pulling for Ender Wiggin, the compelling young character of Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet) which is a science fiction version of Harry Potter. I found the writing to be good, and as I mentioned, the characters truly come alive. I think you will enjoy this tale of future earth as it is quite a fun read."
  • Margaret Curtis

    "This is a very interesting book. Growing up, I remember reading all types of fiction and just strange books overall. This book is about an alien race and breeding smart/genius kids to become soldiers in order to get rid of them. I would probably enjoy this book a lot."

  • Heather Perry
    Written on May 11, 2018
    "I decided to read the book before seeing the movie, since books tend to be better than their movie counterparts. The dystopian world and government is frightening, and it's compelling to read how Ender navigates his world. He is a great character and I was very intrigued to find out what would happen to him. I plan to re-read this book again soon, and again and again! Looking forward to seeing how good the movie is."
  • Harold Carroll

    "Ender's Game is honestly one of my favorite books of all times. Whether you are looking for the best space opera or war book or young adult book, this is the one you need to grab. This is the only book I have ever finished the last page of then immediately flipped back to page one to reread because I enjoyed it so much."

    "Ender's Game is the formative book of my childhood. One thing Orson does is understand the point of view of a gifted child in a world full of "normal" children and adults. This book shaped who I am today and I recommend it to everyone."
  • Vincent Banks
    Written on April 29, 2018
    "This is a really interesting novel from a bildungsroman perspective. It is sci-fi, but the human element is so important. A brilliant young boy is at the center of the book. Despite his genius, he is not fully emotionally developed. Put him into an action-packed plot, and this becomes a thoughtful entry in the genre. "

    "Enders Game is a classic and is a must read for any science fiction fan. I would especially recommend it if you're a fan of video games like Mass Effect. Sometimes it gets a little technical if you're not into really sciencey stuff but it doesn't take away from this being one of the best books for scifi fans. "

    "Topic is good but it's an odd topic title. The story is of a young boy in the future with the fate of the world resting on his shoulders, He is put through training so intense that he was able to think and react as a commander of military forces in time of war. The story was good, and there were interesting observations on war and peace, on brutality and kindness, on bullying and friendship"

    "One of my favorite books. I have read this several times over the last 15 years and enjoy it each time. It is a sci-fi story that very much reads like a "Harry Potter" coming of age story so I am sure Potter heads will love it too. There is a twist at the end I NEVER saw coming when I first read it in High School. I even named my cat Ender Wiggins to honor my favorite book character. Yes, there is a movie, and if you never read the book you will enjoy it but to be honest I enjoyed the movie more having read the book. That is rare, but it gave great visuals for what was hard to imagine in the book."

    "This book has a reading level as low as 6th grade. This means that it would be great for all school age kids but for someone heading to college it wouldn't provide much of a challenge. This book is easy to comprehend by anyone who has an 8th grade reading level so it wouldn't really help prepare college students."

    "I read Ender's Game on the recommendation of a friend. I was really drawn into the world that Orson Scott Card authored. When you are fully able to grasp what is happening and the circumstances, you will fully comprehend just how dystopian the world that Ender lives in is. This is a seminal work in sci-fi, and a great read."

    "A lot of books about the bond of siblings get the inciting incident completely wrong, but that is not the case for Ender's Game. The book thrusts siblings into a perilous situation, which highlights the bond that they have in this book. Overall, I think it's really a paradigm of the genre, so I highly recommend it."

    "I think this would be an excellent choice for any teenage boy due to the the psychological factors and moral dilemas of the hero's life in dealing with his family and situation. I think most teens will be able to identify with that and perhaps even benefit. Excitement and challenges kept me turning pages to the end."

    "I have long been a fan of fantasy series books and tend to rely on the advice of friends. The friend who introduced me to the fantasy genre, suggested Ender's Game and I was hooked from the first chapter. This book combines the world of training that Ender joins as well as his (changing) relationship with his family and new relationships he develops with his fellow trainees; all set against a platform of intrigue and fantasy.
