My boyfrend got me into Ender’s Game…my first sci-fi novel ever. And I’d have to say, it might be my new favorite genre. 🙂
I was a little apprehensive at first, mainly because Star Wars usually comes to mind when in reference to anything sci-fi. But I got over it and decided to dive in. Let me tell you, it’s pretty intense. It’s about gifted children sent off to a battle school somewhere in the galaxy, trained to become commanders/soldiers in the oncoming war with an invading alien life-form. It revolves around one particular boy, Ender Wiggin; following him through his battle training and personal trials. There are other subplots, but I didn’t enjoy them as much (Peter and Valentine Wiggin).
By the end of it, made me wish a school like this really existed. I would’ve kicked some major ass. 🙂
