I finally got the book from the library that Elliot recommended. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.

I must say, this author is pretty versatile. This book is very different from the one I read before. Overall, I liked both books. I know every scifi lover has read the Ender’s Game series. But since I am not usually a scifi reader, I am probably not going to rate it as high as others may.

The whole story hinges on the characters and they were very well developed. The main characters are little kids, but I think the author made little attempt to describe them like kids. They acted liked adults in almost every way. I couldn’t form a mental image of them as kids, they are suppose to be as young as 6, 7, 8 or even 10 or 12. I know that is the point, that these little kids are super geniuses. But a mention of their ages occasionally is pretty much all that is said about childlike characteristics.

I rather predicted the climax, though it was still a little bit of a surprise.

What I didn’t like is the last part of the book. It sets itself up for a sequel, and a “redemption” element there was kind of cheesy.

It sure would be nice to be quick and smart, and such a nice guy too, like Ender Wiggins!
