Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

It has been awhile since I have been able to blog. For me, this has been a very weird summer. But, good news, I have been reading. At the push from my husband and many students, I finally finished Ender's Game. It was not what I expected at all. I was think it would be more sci-fi, but it ended up being more psychological.

Once again, the Earth is under attack. An alien species is poised for a final assault. The survival of humanity depends on a military genius who can defeat the aliens. But who? Ender Wiggin. Brilliant. Ruthless. Cunning. A tactical and strategic master. And a child. Recruited for military training by the world government, Ender's childhood ends the moment he enters his new home: Battle School. Among the elite recruits Ender proves himself to be a genius among geniuses. He excels in simulated war games. But is the pressure and loneliness taking its toll on Ender? Simulations are one thing. How will Ender perform in real combat conditions? After all, Battle School is just a game. Isn't it?

And of course, the movie is coming out. I think it looks awesome!!!
