Ender’s Game Review Overall, Ender’s Game is a great book for any kind of reader. Orson Scott Card does a fantastic job of keeping the reader on the edge of their chairs. I feel that this book revolves around a great theme that should be focused on and recognized more than it really is. Card creates an innocent little boy that grows stronger and smarter throughout the story. Ender overcomes many puzzling situations and troubling conflicts that are thrown at him. Andrew “Ender” Wiggin endures emotional, physical, and mental stress for the duration of the story. It is a great sci-fi fantasy book that I would recommend to anyone. PROS: Ender is forced through many situations that would be close to impossible for any normal child, but as you soon find out, Ender is no ordinary kid. He posses the mindset of a successful commander and the skillset of a strong, intellectual soldier. I like that Card doesn't seem to cut anything out any of the little things that could be crucial to the story. CONS: There really isn’t much room to complain about this book. However, there are a few things that could have been improved. For example, Ender’s “great enemy” could have been more involved in the book and had been explained in more detail. Another examples would be that it is a long story, and Card could have cut some of the little things out.

Interesting Sci-Fi Story

4 out of 5 stars

Emily - 4 years ago
Out of 5 stars, I’d give this book a 4 star review mainly because it kept readers interested throughout the story. All during the book there was a good amount of moving action. Although some of the scenes in the novel were a little on the boring side, it was an overall interesting book to read. My main dislike was that many parts weren't very realistic which made it really hard to imagine. Also, the enemy, “the buggers”, weren’t described very thoroughly leaving the reader wanting more information and description to understand them. Some of the best parts of the book were the fighting scenes. The majority of battles and fights were described well and the reader could pretty easily follow what was going on. Another big plus for this book was that all of the characters were very well developed. Whenever a character made a decision or choice, you could understand why because of your knowledge of their background. All things considered, this a great read for anyone who likes science fiction or futuristic plots.

Ender’s Game thrills with its suspense and action packed drama that goes on throughout the book. Ender’s Game is a novel that takes you on a journey with Ender as ha prepares for the war against the buggers, who are a living species in space. The authors use of imagery makes you feel like you are right there battling along with Ender. If you like science fiction you will like this book. The author shows that Ender can overcome anything no matter what the challenge.

Good but long

Ender’s Game is a sci-fi novel that shows a young boy and his battles with creatures from another planet, other children, and himself. It takes you through the young boys life and how he was chosen over his compassionate sister, Valentine, and his ruthless brother, Peter, to go to Battle School. He meets new children and creates friends and enemies. There are a few things that needs work, though. There are many long pages in a row of the battle room and him training, but it does not describe the battle room in much detail. The pages can go on and on and sometimes it will switch topic and you can get lost easily and have to reread the page because you have no idea what is going on. Other than a few confusing chapters, it was a good overall book and very interesting. It was fun to go through Ender's life with him and see what he is thinking through certain events in his life.
