I'm not really into science fiction, but it was only after I read this book that I discovered that it was sci-fi, so I think I'm excused. Well, it's the best sci-fi novel, I've read in a long time. And 'in a long time' means 'since-the-last-fan-fiction-Star-Wars-novel-I-read-which-was-a-while-ago,-because-I-got-fed-up-with-the-fact-that-no-one-could-kill-Darth-Vader-with-whom-I-do-not-sympathize-at-all"

Even if you're not a fan of science fiction, it's likely that you will genuinely enjoy this book. It's full of youthful adventure, intelligence, and an honest yearning for love and compassion.

The Main Characters are Ender, Peter, Valentine, and Colonel Graff. The story takes place sometime in the future, mainly in outer space. The problem is that their are these aliens (they are called buggers) couldn’t stand that their was another intelligent species alive: us humans. So the Buggers decided to go to war. Because of that, we built this battle school on the moon. So then the people who work on the moon put little chips in kids to see if they would do well in the battle school. Ender went up to the moon and was the commanding officer in the war, hoping he would win. I really liked the book because it was a page turner. If you read it, you will find out why!

Years ago, an alien race invaded earth—twice. By sheer chance, a single commander of the International Fleet managed to defeat the “buggers.” But humans live in fear that they will attack again, and the International Fleet has spent years developing an intense program to train the next generation of all-star commanders. The students at Battle School are children, little boys and girls who nevertheless possess razor-sharp intellect and an instinct for strategy. The top student is Ender Wiggin, just six years old when he leaves his family. Ender is different, and special. Video games, battle simulations, and a fantasy game with a twisted psychological component—plus isolation, bullying, the knowledge that his failure means the end of life of earth, and an uncanny ability to survive and thrive—turn Ender into the ultimate fighting machine. And though Ender may be the earth’s last and best hope, he’s never been predictable—and the buggers are still out there. Despite Ender’s fierce determination, he’s a sympathetic character who’s never allowed to make any plans for his future or stray from the destiny he’s been chosen for. Smart, suspenseful, and thoughtful, Ender’s Game has become a classic of the science fiction genre.
