Book Review: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card



Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet #1) by Orson Scott Card
Rating: 3/5

I've been meaning to read this because it's generally considered one of the classics (or at least very popular) in science fiction world. And well, I have to say I'm impressed and not impressed in equal measure.

The novel starts out great. I was sucked in, I wanted to know more about the genius family and this society which seeks children as young as five years old to fight in their military. I was even intrigued about this “school” which trains children to be soldiers, but then, the author spends a lot of time on describing the training battles. Which is fine, but he describes it in such a way I could never picture it in my head. He spent so much time talking about how they fight in zero gravity but I never could imagine it (north is south or was it east, what were the "stars" and what did they hook on too???). So all the battle scenes at the school I found rather boring, but everything else was great, I mean really great.

Basically I enjoyed the book minus the battle scenes and I am a bit curious where this story is going.

  1. I liked Ender's Game well enough, but I thought the sequels, especially Speaker for the Dead and Xenocide, were far superior. I highly recommend them.
