Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card is a science fiction book set in an unknown future where an alien race known as Buggers has attempted to invade earth twice and seems to be prepared to invade once more. Children seem to be the only hope for survival as they are trained in the latest combat through games at Battle School. Six-year-old Ender Wiggin has been chosen to attend Battle School and seems to be the only hope for humanity. He must leave his family behind and learn quickly in order to lead the soldiers before the Buggers attack. Can Ender learn fast enough? Are the Buggers really coming? And why do the teachers seem to be messing with Ender's mind? Is it all just a game after all? Read this book if you like science fiction, if you like battle stories, or if you're interested in books about good and evil. I give it a 9 out of 10.
