Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card
Fantasy & Science Fiction
Jul 31, 2018
The Wiggin children are unusual, even for the unusual world in which Ender’s Game unfolds. There’s the oldest, Peter, a power-mad sociopath; Valentine, the sister who turns her eloquence to Peter’s service; and then there’s Ender, their little brother, who is singled out by the authorities as the military genius who just might prove to be Earth’s savior in its epic conflict with an alien enemy. Set at some indeterminate time in the planet’s future, when humanity has been at war with the Formics, an insect-like alien race (familiarly dubbed “buggers”) for a hundred years, Ender’s Game might appear at first blush to be the most formulaic of science fiction novels. But just try to put it down.

I read this SF novel and then read more about OSC, and found that I couldn't stomach his homophobia or sexism, so I vowed never to read any more of his works.

His best work on young adult sci-fi. The accidental hero is a role model

Great, if not terrifying, take on using video games and children to win wars. This was re-done with 90s Nostalgia in Ernest Cline's Armada. Both are great reads but Ender's Game is a bit darker with the characterization of the kids.

Key to the government telling you what is bad and what to do, even unwittingly.

One of the best books I read as a teenager. Many fond memories, and it introduced me to entire series.

Masterpiece. When I think about why I love nooks and reading so much, I reflect on the first time reading this and how genius it is.
