Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can remember reading this as a short story in the library as a kid. There was something about it that was just amazing. And then later in life when the novel was released I couldn’t wait to snap it up.
I just recently bought the kindle version and got reacquainted with Ender Wiggins & Valentine. It felt like coming home for the holidays to family you loved dearly, but haven’t seen for a while. You can’t help but get attached to Ender and become emotionally invested.
I couldn’t help but feel the same excitement I did twenty years ago sitting in the library as I read it again.
A must read if you like science fiction.
Having said that, I decided not to read the subsequent books about Ender again, which I read a few years ago. They didn’t have the same power, and I don’t want that to take away from the enjoyment I’m getting from the first book.
