How can you not like this book?

It is so well written, the story between Ender and his sister is so touching. Even the story around his older brother and the jealousy of not being the "one" was very complete. Peter might be evil, but at the same time he is the foil that both Ender and Valentine need to fully realize thier potential.

The story is perfectly balanced, with each peice coming full circle in the end.

Orson Scott Card is an amazing writer.

This is the book against which all other books i read (for pleasure) are measured against. The single best book i have ever read. Simply amazing. It is the first in a series, and the series is awesome, but of course, the first is best. Even so, read them all!! You will not regret it.

very different. Ender is picked on from a very small age. The world is under attack. they monitor the smart kids and if they pass they send them off to "camps" to train to someday fight the "bugger's". They need the kids to find a way to beat the buggers before they invade again. Ender thinks differently than all the others and they try to keep him isolated with no friends and on the brink of breaking down. They put him in life or death situations and never help him giving him a fight response b ...more

The movie is coming out in the fall and I have had this book for forever as I was told it is a classic. It is incredibly good, well thought out and still holds up over time. I didn't want to get sucked in but was a great study in how people react under stress.

I enjoyed this story. However, I thought it was not as good as the other Ender's Game books. Also, the illustrations in this book were different from the other Ender's books and I did not like them as much.

I never really got the point of this story. I know it better fleshes out the challenges of the Battle School, but this still didn't feel all that interesting to me. I guess it was the religious angle and all.

Incredible book. Very in depth analysis of what life is like for the truly gifted. You will guess the surprise twist about half way though, become so engrossed that you reject it an be shocked at the end.

The first book in the series is the best. They are all good, but the original premise which I think started as a short story and them turned into Enders Game is just the best.

Awesome storyline. I love Ender.

This was an intense book that had me on the edge of my seat. Ender's Game made me reflect on human nature and manipulation. The underlying social injustices as well as dynamic characters made this one of the best reads this year!

It's amazing what we can justify to our selves. Disturbing premise but great characterization.

Nice short story, again, not as good as the actual book, but if it gets people reading Card, I can't complain.

This is science fiction at its best, alongside Asimov, Heinlein, Bradbury et al.

First read this eons ago. It was still enjoyable the second time around but knowing the ending took a little bit away from it.

I don't know how I missed this book. I actually listened to it. It was gripping. Again, a futuristic, dystopian society in turmoil. Sound familiary? Yes, but this is a really good story.
