really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction, fiction
Read in January, 1994

Though not a hardcore Sci-fi fan, I’ve always enjoyed the genre. Usually when I get the urge to read sci-fi, I read/reread something by Arthur C. Clarke. However, especially being raised Mormon, I routinely had Orson Scott Card recommended to me—in particular Ender’s Game.

Though I did not fall in love with this book, I’m glad I gave it a try. It held my interest and kept me thinking, and Mr. Card is a talented novelist. Still, there was something unsettling about the whole story, intentionally so I think. As a result, I never warmed up to any of the characters, including Ender. The entire book had a cold, impersonal feel, like any given Stanley Kubrick film. However, I don’t have any specific gripes with the story. It just wasn’t something I connected to at first read.
