I had to write this book review for school so I guess I'll post it here.
“'I've watched through his eyes, I've listened through his ears, and I tell you he's the one. Or at least as close as we're going to get.'... 'All right. We're saving the world, after all. Take him.'” (Page 1)
At the age of 6, Andrew “Ender” Wiggin is whisked away from his home and into Battle School, where he and other carefully selected children play “games” to train to defeat the buggers, a species of aliens that has attacked Earth twice. Being the smartest of them all, Ender flies through Battle school, becoming leader of his own team and then upgraded to Command School at age 9, younger than any other. Ender must face his destiny. He was born to fight the Buggers. With an amazing twist ending that will surprise all readers, Card creates a beautifully written, creative story with twists at every turn.
This book is a brilliant representative of the science fiction genre. All readers can connect with Ender as he goes through every riveting decision, as he bullies and is bullied, and survives through the hardships of Battle School and dystopian life. Every surprise and new storyline is woven in perfect harmony with the plot. This book is so descriptive that each part plays out like a movie in the mind, and the reader is right there with Ender.
Any and every person ages eight and above will love flawless five-star book as I did. Boys and girls, young or old, Sci-fi lovers or not. This book starts off an amazing series, so be sure to check out the other books as well.
