A while ago I read somewhere that all fans of science fiction should read “Enders Game” by Orson Scott Card. While I am a huge science fiction and fantasy fan and thus am biased in this book review, this book has become one of my new favorite books, notice I did not say series, but more on that later. It is a young adult book and is not a hard read at all, although it does boast more than 300 pages. The action grips you right away and never lets up as you get sucked into this utopian world where children are trained to become commanders of the Earth’s fleet to fight aliens. There is violence in this book, however, it is not graphic and not for the sake of having violence but rather to push the storyline. I would recommend this to my more mature readers that like science fiction. I did try to read the rest of the series but admit that after 100 pages of the second book I was done. The first book stands by itself as a shining example of original intense story -telling and many of my 5th grade boys have fallen in love with this book as well. A for me, I have just ordered the whole series in paperback from Amazon and cannot wait to read what happens next.
