Review: Ender’s Game

Ender's Game
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a cool story. I really enjoyed it. The book had some drawn out battles (a few too many, maybe) but that was the only reason for one star off. Otherwise, I have no dislikes. I am really excited to see the movie now. Funny… I read a lot of books with movies because it is fun to be a part of the popular book discussions… but this one I picked up because I had heard it was good and wanted to read it. I had no idea a movie was in production until the trailer came out – and I was about 70% done with the book at the time. I was shocked but totally excited.

I see that there are 3 more books. I am not how sure I am that I want to read more, though. Not because I didn’t like the book but because it ended well. I have very little to no questions about the plot or what will happen next. The only thing left out is what would happen to the hive queen egg and that is not terribly important for me to find out.

I will look into books 2-4 and the Shadow Series eventually…but for such a stand-alone book I am not sure that they are necessary.

As for the movie, I am most excited to see Ender in Battle School:
